17 Miniature Chairs Made from Champagne Corks

 

The winners of the annual Design Within Reach Champagne Chair Contest were recently announced and this year’s pool of entries outdid themselves once again. The rules of the contest are simple:

Use any or all of the materials (except glass) from no more than two (2) champagne bottles. Glue is the only permitted adhesive. You are not permitted to use any additional materials – including tape and/or paint. The chair must measure no more than 4x4x4 inches.

 

The top three entries received gift cards to DWR for $1,000, $500 and $250 respectively. You can find the complete gallery of entries at Design Within Reach and read more about the top three winners on the DWR blog.
