my first giveaway!


a few weeks ago, Jamie from All Modern asked me if i would like to host a giveaway on my blog that they would sponsor. of course (in my mind) i answered "HECK YES!" i have always wanted to do a giveaway! it's taken me a while to sort through their (huge and awesome) site and find something that i think you, my readers, would love to win. i've picked four (super) awesome things from one vendor (MENU) that the winner can pick from. each item is up to a $40.00 value.

All Modern has a great selection of modern furniture, home accessories, eco-friendly bedding, wall art, lighting, and other decor items from brands like Knoll, Herman Miller, Alessi and Blomus. obviously - they have Knoll (and similar awesome design companies), so i was immediately in love with their site.


here are the items the winner gets to choose from:




Pernille Vea Mini Magma Stone Set




Henriette Melchiorsen Fine Salt and Pepper Set




Christian Bjorn Lighthouse Hurricane Lamp





Pil Bredahl Simplicity Vase


i thought all of these items were unique, modern, and something i would personally want to win!

MENU was established in 1979 by Simon Hansen as Danish Steel House. The company specialized in steel products for the catering industry. Nine years later, the company’s famous Irish coffee set was developed by Bjarne Hansen and instantly became an international sales success. Today Menu is known for it's innovative and stylish modern accessories.

thanks and good luck!

OOO! I am torned between the Henriette Melchiorsen Fine Salt and Pepper Set and the Pil Bredahl Simplicity Vase.

On the one hand, I don't have a nice salt and pepper shaker and on the other, the silver vase really goes with the living room's silver accents.

Eek! I can't decide. I like them both.

Chris said... Best Blogger Tips
