The fate of our special family of dining chairs has been sealed, and we have Sarah Meyer to thank. Thanks Sarah
Over a month ago, we set out to put a new face on a tattered family of elegant dining chairs that had fallen victim to life with active children. We invited anyone and everyone to submit their designs, and opened up daily voting to see which design would win. The winning design would be custom printed to fabric to reupholster the chairs. With over 60 design entries from all over the world, and over 2,000 votes, we have tallied the winner.
Meet Sarah Meyer. Sarah's design outpaced the field of over 60 entries to garner a whopping 17% of the total votes cast. Sarah posted 2 entries in the contest, though #123 was a clear favorite and ultimately the top vote-getter.
As far as we can see, all the entries were winners, and we had a sincerely fun time throughout the month with this contest. Sarah's design is being printed on 7 yards of Cotton Duck this week. We'll post pictures when it's printed, and then it's off to the chair reupholsters for a new do – and more photos. More importantly, a $500 American Express Gift Card is on its way to Sarah for her good work. That's not all... the two runner's up deserve a special mention, as their social networks kept them in the running up until the close of voting.
A Special Hat's Off to Melissa Langer and Cryssy Meehan
Only slightly out-paced, Melissa Langer's "Groovy Pugs" secured 15% of the total votes to secure the position as 1st runner-up in our contest. Melissa is a talented artist and pug-lover who owns and operates PugNotes.com. As 1st runner up, Melissa wins her choice of any 3 yards of fabric printed with her design. Way to go Melissa.
Cryssy Meehan waged an exciting battle with her design, our 2nd runner up. With several notable voting surges throughout the month, Cryssy's submission remained in the top 3 throughout the voting, and closed with 9% of the votes. As our 2nd runner up, Cryssy has been awarded her choice of any 2 yards of fabric printed with her design. Thanks Cryssy.
