Let’s hear it for design with a conscience. The Vancouver Home + Design Show is marrying charitable giving and sustainable design with Ultimate Upcycle Challenge: Take A Seat. Armed with a $50 budget and an array of Rust-Oleum products, 14 of Vancouver’s top media personalities and local tastemakers each revamped a piece from ReStore into a seriously stylish seat to be put up for auction at the show, happening October 22-25 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West. 100% of proceeds raised directly benefit Habitat for Humanity Society of Greater Vancouver and its affiliated ReStores, so swing by the show for your chance to bid on good design for a great cause!

Here's a sneak peek at our favourite upcycled gems:

Left: Julia Dilworth leant cozy luxury to a mid-century modern chair with a fur seat and clean coat of white paint.

Middle: Christie Lohr transformed a tired armchair into a throne fit for royalty.

Right: Leigh Kjekstad created a bright, contemporary look for her chair with fun fabric and a fresh, mint palette.
