Seeking the Pop-ular Vote

KristaCharles.jpgEach year, Design Within Reach, a chain of furniture stores, including a branch in Sacramento, invites aspiring interior designers to create a miniature chair using only the foil, cage and cork from a bottle of Champagne. This is last year's winner from a field of more than 600 entries, the "Patrick Chair," by Krista Charles of Indianapolis.

For the first time this year, Design Within Reach is asking the public to vote for the "most popular" chair in a series of preliminary rounds. The fifth round of candidates just has been posted on the chain's Web site. Go here to see the latest nominees and to cast your vote, but be forewarned that if you do vote you also will be signing up for Design Within Reach's e-mail list, which in addition to sales pitches actually provides stimulating information for anyone at all concerned about design. The final round will be next week.

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites. We've heard from hundreds of you already and we're listening. Please continue to add your thoughts and questions here. We also encourage you to write Letters to the Editor on this and other topics.
