A former student is hopeful of seeing her graduate job prospects improve after reaching the final of a national interior design competition, the Haringey Independent reports.
Tamar Balakjian, who graduated in Textile and Surface Design at Buckinghamshire New University, submitted two pieces of work from her studies to enter the Interiors 2010 event.
Her entries consist of a 'Pre-set Table' and a 'Wall of Sun Through Dust', a floor to ceiling design that has been influenced by Japanese bamboo weaving.
The 29-year-old is among six finalists to be selected and understands the importance this could have on her future career and graduate job prospects.
She told the publication: "This is a great opportunity for me to showcase my work on a national scale.
"To win would be fantastic, but just to have my work displayed at such a prestigious event represents a terrific opportunity."
The final is being held at the Birmingham NEC and runs from January 24th to the 27th, with retailers, interior designers and architects expected to be among those in attendance.
