Portland, OR-based designer Karen John of Heartwork is on a mission to bring color to the workspace with her line of US-made, well-priced cabinetry pieces in a range of unexpected shades, from hot pink to teal blue. Want to get in on the colorfest? Tell us what color inspires you and you could win an $800 shopping spree from Heartwork. Read on for details.
As founder of Heartwork, a Portland, Oregon-based furniture company, much of John's work is fueled by color. "Traditionally, the office has been devoid of color choices, with most pieces being offered in variations of gray, beige, or black," she says. John and her team at Heartwork are working to change this, offering a line of USA-made, durable, well-priced pieces in a range of colors. From Bravado, a limited-edition bright pink that inspires "courage and boldness," to mint, a soothing shade that bridges "the vintage past and future near," each piece is built to express the work ethos and goals of an individual or team.
We'd like to know: What color inspires you at work? Is it bright red? Or perhaps a cooler shade of teal? Let us know in the comments section below to win an $800 shopping spree from Heartwork. We'll be choosing one winner at random. The giveaway closes Sunday, September 15, at 9pm EST.
Update: Congratulations to our winner, Kim Baskind!
