Christopher Lowell Lead Design Judge for our Alluminare Design Challenge
Light fixtures, wallpaper and pillows are anxiously awaiting their new designer looks. So we wanted only the best when it came to our judging team.
We wanted a team leader who lives and breathes interior design and art, with successful signature lines of home decor fabrics, and who works magic on a space with color, texture and pattern.
I am thrilled to announce that Christopher Lowell is our Lead Design Judge for

Christopher is pouring over the Alluminare Design Challenge patterns, thoughtfully considering the potential of each, and choosing our Top Ten designs for you to vote on!
The other members our judging team that have helped Christopher spot the outstandung designs and narrow the field are:
Friday Shamblen, Founder, Alluminare
Eric and Friday Shamblen started Alluminare in 2001 after Friday discovered how challenging it was to get a custom lighting fixture made for her home. As technology experts working at Cartoon Network in Atlanta, they saw the need to make the complexities of specifying custom products simpler and available over the Internet.
Libby Unwin, Alluminare World Class Designer
Libby often draws inspiration from Art Deco, fabrics, patterns, textures and the ‘X’ factor. Libby mentors other Alluminare artists, and runs her independent graphic design firm where she specializes in surface design, LU Graphics.
Christopher Lowell will announce our Top Ten designs here on HomeWorkshop.com—and will kick off the public voting—in just over a week. In the meantime, we’ll be creating images to show you what those patterns look like on Alluminare’s customizable home decor products.
Thanks for your patience artists. Good things do come to those who wait!!
