Local Child Artists Win Our Chair Design Contest

Congratulations Shannon Thompson and Lillian Cyr, winners of Our Chair Design Contest!


Take a look at these bold and original designs from two local artists! Shannon and Lillian joined over sixty people in the contest, creating unique designs for the child-sized Adirondack chairs. The two winners were chosen by popular vote on our Facebook page.


In Shannon’s colorful chair, the organic wavelike patterns in the center break up the squares and lines of the rest of the chair, reminiscent of a pebble dropped into a pond of pure color.

Lillian’s design is a study of contrast and balance; black and white, straight lines and arabesques— everything in balance for a breathtaking result. We applaud these two young Vermont artists and we’re happy to have had the chance to turn their two-dimensional designs into functional art!


Linda Dilworth, one of our Color Consultants, worked with the folks R.K. Miles to match to the colors from the original designs. Kris Kuebler, an artisan from our LuxDeco decorative painting division, teamed up with Linda to make Shannon and Lillian’s unique designs come to life.

We would like to thank Shannon, Lillian, and all the other contestants who submitted designs. Also, special thanks to R.K. Miles for donating the paint. If you would like to see the other submitted designs, check out the photos on our Facebook page.
