10 Days of Design Crush Anniversary Giveaways: Day 2 Umbra


Ten years ago this month I started Design Crush as a place to gather inspiration for my day job as a graphic designer, and five years ago it became my full-time job. To thank you all, as well as highlight some of my favorite sponsors from over the years, we’ll be hosting ten days of giveaways in celebration of ten years of this little site that could. NOTE: You have 24-hours left to enter yesterday’s giveaway to win a $250 gift card to Artifact Uprising


Hub Mirror

I was a fan of Umbra long before we ever became brand partners – I’m talking college days. The Toronto-based company no longer carries those first purchases I made, but my home is still full of their original, modern, casual, and functional products. Bonus: Their price points are fantastic, making great design affordable for the masses.


Touch Toothbrush Holder

Great design can make you think outside the box, and that’s just what Umbra does for me in my home. I’ve used grouping of toothbrush holders as sleek vases, magazine racks to hold linens and cutlery when the table was too full, and wall art to decorate wreaths during the holidays. This coat rack stands in my entry, and this napkin holder on my kitchen counter – I truly love this brand and all it stands for.


Gazette Magazine Rack

Umbra‘s originality in thought and process radiates throughout their catalogue of goods, maybe even more so in the lesser-known Umbra Shift. It’s a small offshoot that’s downright high design featuring established, emerging, and in-house designers creating functional items that are design forward. (I love the Cowboy Coffee Kettle!)


Brass Prisma Wall Decor

Umbra has every room in your home covered, and one reader has the chance to win a $250 gift card for a little summer spruce up! You have 48-hours and eighteen chances to enter.

    Umbra has a new accessory tray and ring holder that I’m crushing on big time. (http://www.umbra.com/cad/catalogsearch/result/?q=poise Aren’t they lovely?) I’d snap them up in a heartbeat!

    It’s pretty prosaic, but I want a couple of good-looking garbage cans to replace the one I have in my kitchen and bathroom.

    I’ve had my eye on the white Estique Key Hook & Organizer for awhile for our entryway! Would be great for my husband’s wallet & keys when he comes home from work and it would fit perfectly between our front door & windows.
