Bentonville, Ark. (Oct 7, 2009) – Looking at your dining room table and wondering how you’re going to fit the entire family around it for Thanksgiving? Or maybe you’re contemplating moving the family festivities to someone else’s home because your dining space isn’t up to par. If that’s the case, you’re in need of a dining room makeover by I.O. Metro!
I.O. Metro, a specialty lifestyle furniture company based in Bentonville, Ark., is giving away a free dining room makeover in time for the 2009 holiday season. The “Dine with Design” contest is open now through Oct. 31. Participants are asked to submit a picture of their current dining room and up to 200 words on why they deserve a complete dining room makeover. The winner, chosen by a panel of I.O. Metro managers and designers, will win new furnishings from I.O. Metro and the assistance of an on-site designer to put the look together.
To enter the contest, participants must become a fan of I.O. Metro’s Facebook page – www.facebook.com/iometrofurniture. Contestants must then post a picture with their description of 200 words or less to be officially entered in the contest.
“We understand during this tough economic climate that many families have had to overlook their out-of-date dining rooms in order to focus on other needs, so we’ve created a contest with them in mind,” said Jay Howard, chief executive officer of I.O. Metro. “We think the dining room is one of the most important rooms in a home because it’s where families come together to share and be together. We think giving away a dining room makeover in time for those special Thanksgiving and Christmas meals is a perfect way to kick off the holiday season.”
The contest is open to those 18 and older. The winner will be announced Nov. 11, and the makeover will occur before Thanksgiving
Day. Visit http://www.io-metro.com/dinewithdesign.asp for more information and contest rules.
