Salvations Design Contest 

Let the building begin. The Green Project announced last week that it has started accepting submissions for its 2011 Salvations furniture design contest. The rules? Construction materials — whether doorknob, light fixture or seat cushion — must be salvaged items. The fourth annual event gathers the designs for a juried art exhibit in April at The Shops at Canal Place and auctions them. Proceeds benefit the Green Project. Judges look for creativity, functionality and how well recycled materials were incorporated into the piece. Submissions for the event in previous years included restored mid-century coffee tables, whimsical dressers and drawers, and a Louis XIV-meets-Louis Armstrong armchair.
