Show Us Your Space for a Chance to Win a Casamidy Lantern

Meredith Swinehart May 23, 2013

When we were dreaming up prizes for our very first Remodelista Considered Design Awards, we thought immediately of the Symi lantern from Casamidy. Why? It’s shape is vaguely houselike (it even has a front door), the materials are simple and timeless (iron and leather), it can be used indoors and outdoors, and it’s made in Mexico by our friends Jorge Alameda and Anne-Marie Midy. Want to win one? Send us photos of your brilliant home or garden and you’ll be in the running.

And thanks to all of you who have already sent in your submissions; we’re loving them, and the fact that they range from simple rooms to more involved professional projects.

Here’s the entry link: Remodelista Considered Design Awards.
