In what was a very last minute idea the MCM Facebook group had its first ever contest. For ten days members submitted their entries for MCM Gingerbread House with a holiday theme. There were so many great submissions and when the contest ended the winning entry was the lovely gingerbread house (featured above) created by Diane Petkoff Bentlely and her prize was one of the wonderful trees from Modern Christmas Trees generously donated by Matt Bliss.
Designed by influential Brazilian designers Carlo Hauner and Martin Eisler the chair, made from wrought iron and wrapped in reed, shows the softer side of Modernism. Quite a feat for a chair made form iron.
