When we find a designer or company we love, we stalk it obsessively. Lucky for us, Blue Q, founded by brothers Mitch and Seth Nash in 1988, is located pretty much around the corner in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, which makes such shrub-prowling a breeze.
Not that we wouldn’t go out of our way for Blue Q’s irreverent, non-animal-tested bath and body products, gum, bags, T-shirts, tin banks, and other gifty items—after all, who wouldn’t love a little Bitch Slap Liquid Hand Soap, Jack the Ripper Lavatory Mist, or Understand Your Mother Breath Spray? And we can’t give enough props to a company who thinks perfectly acceptable office behavior includes wrapping a vacationing coworker’s desk in cellophane or whose daily posts on Facebook often leave us accidentally snorting our coffee. But these days, we’re even more thrilled to have the local hook-up for Blue Q’s bright, giddy, 100% recycled paper lanterns,which bring a dose of vibrantly unique design and humor to any space. With 18 designs to choose from, we dare you to not find one you covet.
Well, lust no more, because the fine folks at Blue Q are sponsoring a terrific giveaway! To be entered to win the hanging lantern of your choice, all you have to do is visit Blue Q and tell us in the comments below which of the lanterns is your favorite. Simple, no? The contest runs from now until 11:59 p.m. EST on October 28, 2012. View the full details.
Congratulations to our winner, Laurel from South Dakota!
