This thesis discuss on the development of a conceptual model for Islamic furniture design assessment through the application of the Asmaa' al-Husnaa attributes. The main goal of the study is to identify Islamic furniture assessment design criteria for Good Design. The challenge of Muslim furniture designers lies in identifying the correct assessment criteria for Good Design from an Islamic perspective. This descriptive type of research uses the mixed method to collect verifiable data in the Klang Valley. The occasional chair is selected as sample for this research. The identified Muslim perceptions constitute the medium of communication between designers and consumers through various research activities. This research primarily involves observation, open-ended interview, brainstorming, and protocol study for the qualitative method. In addition, questionnaires with designers and furniture consumers complement the quantitative methods. In the validation segment of the new model through protocol study a group of practicing designers is involved. According to the preliminary finding, 44 attributes of the Asmaa' al-Husnaa are suited to guide furniture designers. The concluding chapter discusses applying the Asmaa' al-Husnaa attributes and furniture design assessment criteria from the Islamic perspective based on the new conceptual model and as points at future research directions.
