Drink Champagne, Design Tiny Chair, Repeat

champagne chairs

Two of our favorite things—Champagne and chairs—come together in a festive contest from the bubbly furniture fans at Design Within Reach. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: create an original miniature chair using only the foil, label, cage, and cork from no more than two Champagne bottles (glue is the only permitted adhesive). Entering is the easy part. Simply snap a photo of your tiny, fizzy throne and upload it here. A panel of Champagne-loving chair experts, including David Weeks, the dapper and effervescent gentlemen of Rich Brilliant Willing, and design journalist Pilar Viladas, will judge the chairs, and three winners will receive a DWR gift card. Drink fast, because the deadline for entries is Tuesday, January 14.

Make Your Champagne Dreams and Caviar Wishes Come True

After the last of the bubbly has been swilled, stash the cork, foil, cage and label from two of those Champagne bottles and twist up a chair fit for a very small king. Design Within Reach’s annual Champagne Chair Contest. The grand prize is a $1500 gift certificate from DWR (cool, you can buy the cushion for the Barcelona couch!) and notoriety among your peers. If this New Year finds you teetotaling, never fear, you can stop by your friendly neighborhood DWR and pick up a kit, courtesy of the fine folks at Veuve Clicquot. Check out last year’s finalists, winner Krista Charles is to the right. Entries are due January 15.

We’d actually like to see a slightly amended version of this contest, where you have to construct the chair immediately after consuming two bottles of Champagne.
