We are big fans of Drew Barrymore, really who isnt? We love her style, her humour and from the few peeks we have had over on Instagram her interior taste looks pretty dreamy too. So we were hardly surprised when it was announced she was going to be a judge of the Etsy Design Awards (a.k.a) The Etsies! And now the results are in, so we of course have to add everything Drew picked to our baskets, because if Drew likes it, well then Etsy sellers can take all our money.
So the Grand Prize winner was Stackton Credenza (opens in new tab) by Adrian Pool, Martinus Pool, and Anne Tranholm of AdrianMartinus (opens in new tab). And we can so see why, this piece is amazing, and it's actually made of stacked old skateboards! It's the reason we love Etsy so much, you can find such unique homeware, without having to trawl vintage and antique shops.
'This piece is so beautiful and at first glance, you would never know that it’s actually made out of recycled skateboards—how cool is that?' Drew told Etsy (opens in new tab). 'The design is so sleek, and I really appreciate the functionality of the sliding doors and adjustable shelves.'
The winner of the Home & Living category was this stunning Test tube chandelier (opens in new tab) by Magda Jurek of Pani Jurek (opens in new tab). It was originally designed as a tribute to Marie Curie for the 100th anniversary of her Nobel Prize in chemistry and you can totally change how it looks by filling the tubes with whatever cuttings you want.
'You can quickly change a room’s ambiance by adding plants or colorful liquids,' explains Magda in her interview with Etsy. 'I’m always surprised how different my lamps can look depending on the user’s personal style.'
Oh my godness how amazing is this piece? This Macrame wall hanging (opens in new tab) from Demi Macrame Designs is the winner of the Art category, it's all handwoven from dyed cotton, and we are loving the warm earthy tones. There a concealed plant pot too if you wanted to add some greenery. This would look amazing hung above a bed, almost as like a replacement headboard.
