Champagne Chair Contest

Design Within Reach offers their contest for the third year.  Enter today!


Published:

Between holiday fêtes and New Year's countdowns, every real wine enthusiast ends up with a handful of Champagne corks and cages lying around. Don't throw them away—they could mean 15 minutes of fame for you (and maybe a new piece of furniture or two).

San Francisco-based Design Within Reach, a company that provides easy access to well-designed furniture and accessories, is again sponsoring their Champagne Chair contest.

The goal?

For contestants to design the most crafty, ingenious and durable mini chairs using only Champagne corks, foils and wire cages. The grand prize is a $2,000 gift certificate to DWR. Five additional winners will each receive $500 gift certificates. All winners' chairs will be featured in a traveling exhibition showcased at DWR studios around the U.S. (This year, well-known figures in the design community are also being asked to give it their best, but their efforts will not be included in the contest.)

 The deadline for entries is January 6, 2006. For contest rules and judging criteria, visit www.dwr.com/champagne.
