We love design as much as the next person, but we have a special place in our hearts for ​mini​ interiors. You can find plenty of these small but stylish design items (and entire spaces) on the internet but we're always excited for Design Within Reach's Champagne Chair Contest. The brand asks creative minds to make furniture using ​only​ materials from Pommery brand champagne bottles.

The winners of DWR's 17th Annual Champagne Chair Contest have been announced and they are downright delightful. Plus, there's a good cause. "Herman Miller Cares donated $50 for each entry to Artist Relief, a charitable initiative to provide financial help to artists during the pandemic, for a total donation of $10,000!" the brand wrote on its site.

You can read more about the winners here. We would personally choose any of these items for our mini home.
