getting cosy with woonwinkel: a giveaway.
welcome to woonwinkel — which means “home shop” in Dutch. woonwinkel is a Portland, Oregon-based shop run by Erica Essink and Kristin Van Buskirk — whose mission is to provide a venue to independent designers from all over the world, and focusing on bringing us well made, handcrafted furnishings for the home. the woonwinkel aesthetic is new modern: warm, inviting, tactile, and a little bit quirky. Modern with soul, with a particular affection for makers on the U.S. west coast. to celebrate those makers woonwinkel is hosting a giveaway of a ISH 00 Throw Blanket From Mae Engelgeer for one lucky sfgirlbybay reader.
Mae Engelgeer is a great example of one of the independent designers woonwinkel works with, whose product isn’t super easy to find in the U.S. Her Woww collection has been very successful and she now has a new collection, ISH, including the beautiful blanket we’re giving away today.
woonwinkel also works with small companies like Hay and SCP who commission work from independent designers, and value companies who pick up the innovative, usually sustainable work of independents. to enter the giveaway for the Mae Engelgeer blanket, simply:
• visit woonwinkel and have a look around at their shop and the designers they carry.
• comment here on one of your favorite pieces, or one the designers you discovered on woonwinkel.
• as always, please be sure and leave a way to reach you via email, your website, twitter or facebook — without your info we can can’t track down a winner.
