Competition: Win £250 to spend at

This Competition is now closed.

Thank you to everyone who submitted their Pinterest boards. It was a really difficult decision but well done to the winner – Matthew Hird.


I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be hosting this fabulous competition. The lovely people at have kindly offered a brilliant prize to my readers – £250 to spend at their website. You could put it towards a larger item like a sofa or bed or you may like to blow it all on a basket full of cushions! The choice is yours. Of course firstly you need to know what to do to enter, so read on.

Let me tell you a little more about the company and its products. brings you a new way to buy your furniture. By cutting out the middle man they are able to bring you their products direct from the designers saving up to 70% on the retail price. They have no warehouses, no middle men and no physical stores, just a gorgeous website full of modern, contemporary furniture and accessories. Every week they combine the orders taken and put them into production. As they only manufacture what’s been ordered they manage to cut costs. It does mean delivery takes a little longer but it’s worth the wait.

What has always attracted me to is the quality of the design. It’s different and refreshing and very accessible because of the price. I’ve featured them several times in the Chic Showcase because the style is spot on for me.

And so how would you like to win a fabulous £250 to spend with them? Here’s what you have to do:

    Hi Jen! What a great competition – I love doing montages, I love Pinterest and yep I love Made too – they are a gem of a shop, I know sooo many people who are finding times tough at the moment, but can afford some good design for their homes at Made and shop there regularly! I will start thinking of a montage to put together 🙂 x

    Ooh dear spot the Pinterest newbie!! I have posted my board twice as the first time it said ‘comment awaiting moderation’, so I thought I had made a mistake. I have posted it again and it says the same thing….eeek what am I doing wrong or does everyone get this?! Apologies 🙂 xx

    This is my board inspired by an art/craft room make over. (I am Arts and craft crazy)
    I love creating art and also Upcyling as well.
    My style involes combining new contemporary design and new pieces with older recycled pieces.
    I have included a couple of my own pieces in the board. Hope you like it I had a blast creating it. 🙂
