Three is better than one. Congratulations to Lisa Linhardt of Linhardt Design, Tara St. James of Study NY, and Aga Śmiechowska of Vyosna, each of whom were chosen as winners of the DIY with IOU contest. Each design will be produced as part of the IOU Project’s “Made in NYC” capsule collection, featured at a trunk show hosted by ABC Carpet & Home, and sold on Fab.com.
Kavita Parmar founder and creator of the IOU Project said “Choosing one [winner] was impossible as it was clear that pretty much everyone had really put in their all into creating the pieces. Finally after much debate we narrowed it down to three…as we felt they represented the three important ideas behind IOU: be brave and question, be authentic and yourself, be honest and simple.”
Francisca Pineda’s design won the Ecouterre Readers’ Choice Award and a $50 swatch certificate for Source4Style. I must say I was surprised it was not one of the winners. It was definitely my favorite design.
