champagne chair contest.

Did you know that Design Within Reach holds a champagne chair contest each year? Well it does. Participants can only use the wire, cork, cage, and foil of up to two champagne bottles to construct a mini chair. Glue is the only adhesive they are permitted to use.

We learned about this contest a little late (a few years ago) — it’s been happening for nine years now. But since then, Ryan has been crafting cork chairs like mad, and now we have a few of them decorating the apartment. Unfortunately, he didn’t enter this year’s contest, but hopefully next year he will.

Here are the winners from the 2009 contest:

Judges pick:
cork chair

Popular Vote:

Staff Pick:
cork chair

The winning chairs will be touring DWR showrooms throughout the country, check out the schedule here.
