Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, April 29, 2010
Toronto – Contemporary home product design house and brand Umbra is celebrating its 30th anniversary with the newly-launched “You Design” competition.
The contest, which runs now through June 30, is global and invites consumers around the world to enter by submitting a photo showing their own original design that uses an Umbra product or Umbra products “creatively in their own space,” the company said.
The top three finalists will receive complimentary airfare, accommodations and an invitation to Umbra’s anniversary party in New York City in August. The first prize winner will receive $5,000 in Umbra product, and additional prizes will be awarded to the top 10 finalists.
Umbra also invites the public and contest entrants to vote “and help Umbra decide the top 10 most creative spaces.” A media panel of interior design experts will narrow down voters’ choices to the top three finalists.
