Noir Furniture (www.noirfurniturela.com) announced the three winners of the second annual ‘Shine by Design’ social media photo contest. After much success of the contest the first year, Noir is honored to continue their recognition and support of talented design professionals. In honor of this year’s participants, Noir hosted a brunch during Fall High Point Market on Sunday, Oct. 23, 2016 from 12– 2 p.m., at their CFC Showroom where the winners of the ‘Shine by Design’ contest were announced. All High Point Market attendees were welcomed to attend the brunch.
There were over 400 submissions this year through Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The Grand Prize Winner this year is, Shawn Evans of P Four, who received $1,000 of Noir product. The Second Prize Winner, Nina Magon of Contour Interior Design received $750 of Noir product, and the Third Prize Winner, Hallie Mullen of Mullen & Bergstrom received $500 of Noir product.
At the beginning of July, professional designers were encouraged to submit high-resolution lifestyle photos showcasing their use of Noir product in their designs. The goal of this contest was to create fun customer engagement through social media channels as well as to show different ways in which Noir products have been used in installations. It was also an opportunity for Noir to help promote their different interior design customers and give them publicity via Noir’s social media channels. To enter the 2016 contest, contestants were able to submit their photos via the “Photo Contest” tab on Noir’s Facebook page or post their pictures to Instagram and/or Twitter using two hashtags, #NoirPhotoContest and #NoirShineByDesign. The contest ran for three months and ended Friday, Sept. 30, 2016. All submitted photos are available to view on Noir’s Facebook page on the “Photo Contest” tab as well as in a printed look book, “The Many Looks of Noir”, which will be available at upcoming markets or by request.
