We challenged five Canadian interior design bloggers across the country to create their own custom chair in support of their favourite charity. This sparked the name “Custom Chairity Competition”

The participating bloggers are:

  1. Maria Killam, Vancouver: Colour Me Happy
  2. Nyla Free, Calgary: Nyla Free Designs
  3. Christine Da Costa, Oakville: Decor by Christine
  4. Meredith Heron, Toronto: Sashay
  5. Kim Johnson, Ottawa: Desire to Inspire

Each of the bloggers had their choice of three of our custom chairs: Cinderella, Devon or Groove. They were then given free rein to do whatever they chose which included lots of fun decisions:

  • Fabrics
  • Piping
  • Buttons
  • Nail heads
  • Leg options

Everyone here at the office and in our stores were very excited for the reveal of what they had each created.
