This study describes how the application of interior computer graphics can explain the concept of metaphor seating facility design with the narrative approach method based on the aspects of strength, beauty, and function compared to the narrative approach method based on the narrative only. The research is based on the results of UNIKOM students' work in the furniture class in 2021. The problem of this research is how to use interior graphic applications in explaining the work stages of students using the narrative approach method to create seating facility forms through the concept of metaphor and the factors of interior computer applications which can translate and convey the message of the narrative. This research uses a participatory method. Several student works became the object of research. The stages in the design process are making narratives with basic design ideas, elaborating narratives, translating narrative elements on design stools in metaphorical forms, working drawings and prototype designs, using the SketchUp application, and Auto Cad. The results of the study indicate that the use of interior computer graphics makes it easier to convey messages from three aspects of seating facility design, namely beauty, strength, and function as well as messages from methods that only use narrative. However, if the ability to use the interior graphic application is limited, the delivery of messages will be hampered.
