COVID-19 has eliminated or seriously impacted most annual award events, but thankfully, one of our favorite events of the bunch is still going strong this year. Etsy recently announced its 100 finalists for the Etsy Design Awards, and they definitely don’t disappoint.
If you're not familiar with the Etsy Design Awards, they started last year and highlight design-forward items from a variety of categories, including jewelry, clothing, art, and home and living. And one of our favorite aspects of this event is that all of the awardees are independent businesses, so not only does the event showcase beautiful design, but it also amplifies the work of hardworking artists, makers, and designers.
Of course, being the interior enthusiasts that we are, the home and living category is the one we’re most excited about, and given the below picks, you’ll definitely see why.
With its dreamy, rainbow hues and gilded accents, this handmade porcelain mug is all kinds of happy-making. And because each piece is hand-built, it’s guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a chair more original and compelling than this one. Made of solid wood panels and a lacquered steel base, this sculptural beauty is most definitely a stunner.
