Central Michigan Univerity interior design majors Ryanne DeJonge and Kaelah English are recipients of 2018 CET Designer awards in the Student Rendering category.

DeJonge is a senior from Rockford, Michigan, and English is a senior from Mount Pleasant.

Under the instruction of interior design faculty member Julie Qun Zuo, English and DeJonge visualized a waiting area for an outpatient office in their Advanced CAD for Interiors course. Steelcase health care furniture was used for the design.

“I hate how most waiting areas are very sterile and uninviting, so my goal was to make this space very lively while still allowing people to feel calm and relaxed. I think the brightness and openness of the area accomplishes this,” DeJonge said.


Ryanne DeJonge's rendering took second place.


Kaelah English won third with this design.

The top three renderings were announced Oct. 17 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The awards are sponsored by Configura, a software solution company that developed CET Designer, an all-in-one computer-aided design software used in the interior design industry for space planning, specification and configuration of products.

CET Designer was donated to CMU’s interior design program in 2011 and is used extensively in classrooms.
