Let the Bidding War Begin!

Vin de Garde Modern Wine Cellar Systems is Vancouver’s premier manufacturer of custom wine cellars and wine storage systems. Using a wide range of materials, such as glass, steel, acrylic and wood, each of their custom built solutions is a highly functional and beautiful space designed specifically for each client (and their wine!).

The Design A Panel contest is a friendly competition featuring 60 select interior designers to help raise funds for Covenant House in Vancouver. Here’s how it works:

1. Each designer is supplied with a 12″ x 10″ clear acrylic panel. The panels are part of Vin de Garde’s wine wall series, a modular kit that allows you to build your own wine wall.

2. Using our creativity, each competitor is tasked to embellish their clear acrylic panel.

3. All 60 beautiful  panels will be displayed in a large wine wall and then auctioned off individually to raise funds.

The Eco Floor Store is proud to take part in this creative fundraiser! We decorated three panels with three different eco-friendly wall surfaces: Pearlamina wall tiles, Natura wall tiles and Stikwood.


Acrylic Panel #1: Pearlamina Wall Tiles Made from Sustainably Harvested Capiz Shells


Acrylic Panel #2: Natural Wall Tiles Made from Sustainably Harvested Water Lilies


Acrylic Panel #3: Stikwood made from Recycled Snow Fences

The free event is on September 26th, 2014. For tickets and additional info, click here. Let’s hope our panels bring in huge dollars for Covenant House!
