angelo-home_winning-chairCongratulations to Carrie McDougall, the winner of HGTV’s angelo:HOME Holiday Gift Giveaway!  Carrie knew exactly which Angelo Surmelis chair she wanted to claim as her prize – one of the fan favorites, the Hepburn in black-and-white vine fabric.  We’ve asked her to snap a few photos once the chair finds its way to its new home.

Thanks to everyone who participated.  We hope you had as much fun playing with us as we had creating our little scavenger hunt.

If you’re looking to win something on an even grander (and dreamier) scale, check out our coverage of the 2010 Dream Home.  And be sure to tune in to the HGTV Dream Home 2010 special premiering on January 1, 2010 at 9pm ET.

tablescape300After a week of clues for HGTV’s angelo:HOME Holiday Gift Giveaway, the last clue is finally here.  By now you definitely know that Angelo is the host of Rate My Space, but did you know that the show was inspired by our user generated gallery of the same name?  And this year we launched a Holiday section to let our fans show off all their exquisite holiday designs and decorations.  One of our top contributors, nyclq, uploaded a gallery jam packed with ways to update your dining room throughout the holiday season.

For the 5th clue, we want to know 2 different ways that nyclq dresses up her dining room table for the holidays.  There are lots of great ideas in there, so send us any two.

Now comes the part that everyone has been asking all week: “What do I do with all these answers?”  It’s as simple as sending an email to by 12 noon Eastern on Monday, December 7, 2009. Use the subject line “HGTV’s angelo:HOME Holiday Gift Giveaway” and provide the answer to each of the five clues in the body of the email.  The winner will be chosen randomly from all of the correct emails and announced here on the blog on Wednesday, December 9, 2009.

Here’s a summary of everything you need to do:

  1. Find the answers to all five clues here on Design Happens that we provided from Monday, November 30 through Friday, December 4.
  2. Send an email to between 9 AM Eastern Friday, December 4 and 12 noon Eastern Monday, December 7, 2009 with all five answers and the subject line “HGTV’s angelo:HOME Holiday Gift Giveaway”.
  3. We’ll sort through all of the correct answers and choose one random email as the winner.
  4. The winner gets their pick of any of the 9 chairs we featured this week from the angelo:HOME furniture line.

Good luck to everyone, and happy hunting!

One of the reasons  that we’re so excited about the angelo:HOME Holiday Gift Giveaway is because Angelo Surmelis’ first furniture line (which launched earlier this year) has been wildly successful, and — despite sellouts — he and his team have pulled together 9 beautiful chairs for our winner to choose from. We’ve seen armchairs and armless chairs, patterns and solids and plenty of custom Angelo color. Ready for more? Take a look at the Grant chair in lotus green and the Hepburn in the black-and-white vine pattern.

Time for three more chair choices for our angelo:HOME Holiday Gift Giveaway. Our clue today has to do with Angelo Surmelis’ love of film and Old Hollywood which is played out in his furniture line. Meet the Harlow Chair in yellow and white check, mango floral and yellow and white floral. Each comes with its own decorative pillow.

“I’m not gonna lie to you. I have a furniture crush,” Angelo says. ”It’s true and it’s on my HARLOW chair in the yellow and white check pattern. It’s safe to say that it will find its way to my living room. I have a camel-colored sofa with espresso piping along with a chocolate leather club chair in the room already, and this chair would be the perfect companion.”

So, you say you’re an Angelo Surmelis fan? How well do you really know the “design geek,” the host of  Rate My Space, the proponent of stylish and affordable furniture, the designer who says his work is first and foremost about changing lives? Angelo shares much of himself, his background, his design secrets, even his favorite foods and photos, through his blog, his website, his fan page on facebook, his tweets and through his personality as it shines on the small screen.

If you really know Mr. Surmelis, then you’ll have no trouble answering Clue #3: a 3-part-question. Angelo likes to travel. What two American cities does he say are his favorite? He also loves to watch movies. What is Angelo’s favorite flick?

Yesterday, we took a look at two of Angelo’s most popular pieces in his new furniture line — the Hepburn and Grant chairs. Modern throwbacks that make you want to pour a glass of wine, take off your shoes and sit a spell. Sometimes, however, armchairs are not an option.If you’re looking for seating that demands less square footage but offers plenty of Angelo style, check out the Davis chair. Then, enter to win the angelo:HOME Holiday Gift Giveaway, and one of these beauties (in sunflower yellow or gunslinger coffee) could be yours.
