Known for their smartly-designed home furnishings, Umbra‘s tasking their customers with getting creative with their products for their new contest You Design. Created in celebration of their 30th anniversary, You Design invites Umbra fans to upload a photo showing an innovative way to use one of their products.

The photos are online for open voting, with the top ten ultimately voted on by a panelist of interior design pundits (including our own CH editor Ami Kealoha). First prize takes home $5,000 in Umbra goods, as well as a trip to NYC for Umbra’s anniversary celebration in August.
