Design Within Reach's 13th annual DWR Champagne Chair Contest has launched. It asks entrants to "create a miniature chair using only the foil, label, cage and cork from no more than two champagne bottles."

Four winners will receive a DWR gift card, with prizes awarded in two categories: Most Original and Best Likeness. Deadline is 8 January 2017. Details and submission requirements are on DWR's website.

So after you toast the New Year with some bottles of champagne and recover from your hangover, pick up an X-acto knife and design a chair. For inspiration, here are photos of last year's winners:
