Happy New Year Everyone! Lets usher in the New Year with Champagne cork chair art! I wanted to share some amazing Champagne Cage and Cork Chairs with you, I know I will covet mine this evening to create some artworks, Hey there is even time to enter a contest!
We have all seen the cute little champagne cage chairs online, Martha Stewart has a tutorial on how to make a basic one on her craft site of course, but down here in South Florida we have an amazing local design firm in West Palm Beach, Design Within Reach. Every year they host a DWR Champagne Chair Contest, Good news, there is still time to enter for this year! Here are some incredible artistic cork chair art pieces that have been entered in the past for your creative inspiration. Let me say that Martha has been outdone…

First we have a modern take on a champagne chair, and one of the previous finalists for all you quilling fans:
I love the modern simplicity and straight lines on this piece:
This one received an Honorable Mention, with its tight twisted detail:
Here is a little chair befitting a Royal, I so adore this one, look at the weaving and little skirt, tiny brad nail head effect, how divine!
Here is a gorgeous Cork chair art, WOW check out the cork base, that’s a lot of work! Gorgeous design.
