Freedom giveaway

Welcome to the first ever Desire to Inspire giveaway. We never have competitions on the blog, ever ... until now. I just couldn't resist when Freedom offered 2 gift vouchers to give to our readers. First prize is a $750 voucher to use in store and second prize $250. If you remember I skipped down to Sydney a couple of months ago to see the launch of Freedom's new Autumn range. I was blown away by the direction that Freedom was taking. Now Freedom wants to give our Australian and New Zealand readers the chance to experience Freedom's fab new range themselves!!! All you have to do is :

- Visit the Freedom website here.

- Find the piece that speaks to you the most, the one you just have to have in your home from their Autumn 2011 collection.

- Leave a comment here on the blog, telling us in 25 words or less "What is your favourite piece from the Freedom New Autumn 2011 Collection and why".

We'll read every one and choose the two winners. The competition starts today Monday 04/04/11 and ends at 11:59pm AEST on Friday 08/04/11 . The winners will be announced the next day. Remember this competition is open to only Australian and New Zealand residents. (I know, apologies to all our other readers but it is so seldom that great competitions like this come up on Aussie blogs. I just couldn't say no.) Please read the terms and conditions here.  You can enter more than once but each entry must be substantially unique and each entry must be submitted separately and in accordance with entry requirements. Get cracking! Start dreaming and start commenting!

Competition is now closed. Congratulations to our winners. The $750 voucher goes to Jenny comment 195 and the $250 voucher goes to Grant comment 18. I will email you soon to let you know how to claim your prizes. Thanks to all who entered and a big thanks to Freedom!!

I drool over the Providor 4 Drawer Console. Love the symmetry & white body with naturally beautiful top. Oh, & the wine storage might have some appeal ;)

I think my favourite piece is the Banks Mirror. The laminated oak... so beautiful. It'd marry my modern and kitch things perfectly! Hope the Christchurch store opens soon...

I'll take the Blade occasional pieces in any of the acid brights!!! For a person sooo addicted to monochromatic colours (like me), this is a great sneaky way to get some colour into your home!

Goodness, I can't go past the Driftaway Clock either. The agrestic wooden centre with the roman numeral surrounds is a perfect mix of old. Love.

My favourite piece is definitely the hide rug. It's a timeless classic that moos to me.

The 'Threadneedle Armchair' because it's like an old woman refusing to act her age. She's an attention-grabber. She's wild, loud and sexy!

The Vineyard dining room table + candlelight + view of rolling hills = la dolce vita!

4 Apr 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKristina

The cow hide rug screams Scandi (navian) design to me, and just in time for the cooler climate!

The Beach Road coffee table seems chameleon like, it could work in your beach front shack, as well as your industrial city loft - I love it!

I love the combination of quirk and classic with the Threadneedle Wingchair. The mismatched feet are the piece de resistance.

Have to be practical and pick a Tate desk arrangement for my boyfriend. His is collapsing under the weight of two computers. Steel reinforcement required!

Oh Hemmingway, Oh Hemmingway

I would lay in you and read a book
Old Ernest's 'To Have and Have Not' for sure
If I was to win this wonderful giveaway

After three months of renovating our very first home to simply make it liveable(!), we finally got our new/old pieced-together kitchen in on the weekend... that beautifully industrial Providore table is simply begging for me to throw our first dinner party around it.

I'm a sucker for bold lines and bright colours which is why I've fallen hard for the Babushka nest of tables. Freedom's new collection rocks!!!

I desire a high tea occasional chair...it inspires me!

The Marlborough sofa - I can see it looking even better with a bit of age (like the husband!), placed alongside some modern art and books galore.

Holy geometry! When I scan the skies, I have to say my radar sees plenty of stars, no star brighter than a Satellite Side Table.

4 Apr 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGrant

I just love the Threadneedle chair, it would be the perfect reading chair in the corner of a bedroom or in a toasty warm sunroom.

4 Apr 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

As a student i hardly buy new furniture, but I couldn't ignore the High Tea Occasional Chair, with incredible birdcage-esque frame. Handmade birds perching on top are a must!

4 Apr 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSamie

I prefer the classics, but sometimes functionality works over. So my pic would be the Odds and Ends Side Table (http://www.freedom.com.au/furniture/living/side-tables/23161306). There are a few rooms in the house that I could use those (ahh... bedroom, hallway, study, bathroom, laundry) and with the wheels it is mission accomplished!

Drake Italian leather armchair!! Perfect for my Italian husband to sit with our 3 kids and read them their bedtime story while the fireplace flickers this Winter!!

4 Apr 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAni

The Utility dining chair in white, would be a fabulous addition to my currently dining chair-less dining table!!

4 Apr 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLauren

It HAS to be the Journal Side Table, stunning vintage style, I was in the Freedom Galeries Victoria store only this afternoon drooling over it!

Ohh that carpenter's table is fantastic! It fulfils my vintage industrial fantasies and is something you would have in your home forever. I'm really impressed with their latest collection.
