AND THE WINNER IS...

I'm thrilled to announce the winner of the fabulous $150 GIFT CARD from Kaufmann Mercantile. Her name is Sónia Sapinho and lives across the pond in Lisbon, Portugal with her husband and daughter. Interested in everything handmade and the design industry as a whole, Sónia is a very talented ceramic designer by trade who also loves to dabble in graphic design and photography (you can take a peek at her wonderful work here). Hmmm, I wonder if that's why she fancies the entire Kaufmann Mercantile collection, especially that cool Market & Fruit Picking Pack (right) which she's dying to get with her gift card. Hey, and for my other darling readers who didn't win this time, remember that Kaufmann Mercantile is offering you a sweet 15% OFF any purchase from their shop for the next week using code KM-92512—so take advantage of this groovy offer before the code expires. And don't give up, there will be more giveaways coming up. Cheers!

GIVEAWAY: HOME PRIVET AT TARGET

••• Sorry, but this giveaway is already closed •••

I love when a brand that has been a long-time staple in the market, looks for ways of reinventing itself to keep up with demands of new generations. Target, or “Tarjay” how I like to call it, is a wonderful example of such innovation that has kept its brand alive by making great design accessible to all through creative retail partnerships. With their latest design program, The Shops at Target, they're partnering directly with specialty shops and boutiques to co-create affordable, limited-edition collections for its guests. For the shelter niche, they're partnering with Privet House in Connecticut to create a signature line of decor and accessories for the home, garden and table reminiscent of the shop’s charming aesthetic. So, to introduce the collection to TheDesignerPad readers, Target is graciously sponsoring this exciting giveaway and giving FIVE of you the chance to own pieces of the collection before its May 6th launch. That's right, five readers will be winning a sweet package from the Privet House at Target line containing the following:

GIVEAWAY: DOUBLE CANDLEHOLDER

•• Sorry, but entries for this giveaway are no longer accepted ••

I recently learned about this innovative online store called Apt2B (coincidently also my apartment number here in NYC). Apart from being a nifty one-stop shop for stylish, high quality home furnishings and decor, Apt2B offers a unique and fun shopping experience to its customers. In a nutshell, they provide affordable and convenient style to the “I'm over IKEA but still not able to afford to furnish my place from Design Within Reach” demographic. One of their coolest features on their site is the pre-priced room packages that allow their customers to select an overall budget before choosing pieces for any given room in their home. How clever of a concept is that? But wait, Apt2B's coolness doesn't stop there. They have generously offered to sponsor this giveaway for all of you, and give a lucky winner the chance to take home one of these super-duper Danes Candle Holders by MENU. The winner will get to pick between the white, black, red or yellow one. So, don't wait any longer and get the skinny on how to enter below. GOOD LUCK TO ALL!

GIVEAWAY: Design Inspiration Book

•• Sorry, but his giveaway is already closed ••

I'm always fascinated to know the inspiration behind the creation of things, particularly when it comes to design. Fortunately, the international creative firm Hangar Design Group has recently published a book showcasing a narrative in images of the creative process of the group's many design projects. "Ideas not Airships” opens a window onto the creative inspiration which has consistently inspired the studio’s thirty-year project. It is a bird’s eye view on their passion for design and for the freedom of the formal research that guides it. A representative view not so much of the many works generated – spanning the areas of graphics, architecture, web design and interior design – but of the creative process underlying each one of these. Today you're in luck. You can now win a copy of this phenomenal book by entering this giveaway sponsored by the Hangar Design Group. You'll have FOUR chances to enter by following the instructions after the jump. 

Congratulations to Katrien for being the lucky winner of this fantastic book. Enjoy!
