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:

One designer that has been in my top ten list of great innovators and trend-setters for a while, is London-based lighting and furniture designer Tom Dixon. I love his bold and daring approach to his designs and admire his sensibility for knowing what's to come. More often than not, I find myself using his pieces in my projects since they're versatile enough to mix with other styles and easily make a great statement in any room. When I got my hands on these two fun Tom Dixon bags, one word instantly came to mind: GIVEAWAY! The bags are exclusively available online in partnership with Blackberry, and they're made from durable PVC in his signature fluoro orange. They features an extra long strap allowing it to be worn across the shoulder and a large front pocket. If you want to add one of these hot babies to your bag collection, follow the instructions below to enter.
