I am thrilled to announce: I am one in five winners of a design competition for national retailer Crate and Barrel! (That's my chair in the middle) After selecting the chair frame from Lee Industries (a collaborator of Crate and Barrel), I picked a fabric brand new to the market - it is made from cotton but looks like leather! The second fabric is a handsome black and white herringbone. I can't wait to see it in person! My chair, alongside the other four winners will be sold exclusively by Crate and Barrel in all 78 store this September!! Check the September catalog, go to Crate and Barrel's website or visit your local store to see my design in person! 

I would personally like to congratulate the other 4 designers too - great work!
