Nicole Paparelli

A recipient of the Grand Rapids Furniture Designers Endowed Scholarship for 2014-2015 and 2015-2016, Nicole Paparelli is also vice president of the American Society of Furniture Designers’ student chapter at Kendall College. Her creative capabilities extend to painting, drawing, sewing and cooking and she is looking forward to putting her education to use in the industry as an in-house designer for a furniture company. “I chose furniture design so I could express my love for art in a tangible and functional way,” Paparelli says. “I am passionate about furniture and what it represents to those that use it to embody their space and lifestyle.”
