Kasia Sweeny

A New Jersey native, Kasia Sweeny says she chose furniture design as her major because it allows her to use her creativity and artistic talents in a functional way. She has been awarded several departmental scholarships at Appalachian State, as well as a scholarship from the American Home Furnishings Alliance. Sweeny feeds her love of the outdoors with hiking, snowboarding and travel and hopes to find a position within the furniture industry after graduation. “I would like to pursue a career as a designer and/or fabricator within a growing furniture company that makes long-lasting, beautiful pieces,” she said. “I would prefer to do both designing and making to maintain an appreciation for the full process.”
