Okay, so here is my entry to the DWR Champagne Chair Contest. The deadline to enter was yesterday, and winners will be announced on January 28th. It took me about 2 hours to cut the cork and straighten and re-shape the wire.
Callsmall entered a really cool chaise, you can see here. Studio7 entered a cool directors chair, check it out here. Linda did some great wire work here. I haven't checked everyone else's blogs yet, but did anyone else enter the contest?
I had a few different ideas for more modern chairs, but I had a hard time implementing. Straigthening and bending the wire was the trickiest part for me. Here are the good, the bad and the ugly shots of my "Squared" chair.
Here are just a couple of the stiff competition this year. Visit the DWR Champagne Chair Contest website to see all of the entries at champagnechair.dwr.com. (Keep checking back as they are still adding yesterday's entries. I entered at 12:30pm yesterday and mine wasn't added to the site until this morning.)
