Thompson, Cyr win design contest
Thompson and Cyr were among over 60 people that competed in the contest, creating unique designs for the child-sized Adirondack chairs. The two winners were chosen by popular vote on Luxbrush's Facebook page.
In Thompson'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. Cyr's design is a study of contrast and balance; black and white, straight lines and arabesques - everything in balance for a breathtaking result. Luxbrush applauds these two young Vermont artists and is happy to have had the chance to turn their two-dimensional designs into functional art.
Linda Dilworth, one of Lux brush's color consultants, worked with the folks at R.K. Miles to match to the colors from the original designs. Luxbrush's Kris Kuebler, an artisan from the LuxDeco decorative painting division, teamed up with Dilworth to make Thompson and Cyr's unique designs come to life.
Luxbrush thanks Thompson and Cyr as well as all the other contestants who submitted designs. They are also grateful to R.K. Miles for donating the paint.
