Design Geeks Make Champagne Chairs

Design Geeks + Champagne Chairs

If you haven’t been lusting after the “objets d’art” in the catalog for Design Within Reach then you might have missed hearing about the Champagne Chair contest. For 4 years now, DWR has inspired wine drinkers to exercise their creative genius on the corks and cages of sparkling wine. It’s happening again!

The contest begins again this year on December 20th–January 8th. Anyone can enter, you just need a bottle of bubbles, a pair of round nose pliers and an instagram account.

Check out the amazing submissions from past years below

Is making tiny chairs a great reason to drink bubbly? I think so.
