This contest is open to any U.S. adult who loves the modern aesthetic, but needs some extra help to achieve a truly modernized, 2011 living room. To help homeowners get started, everyone who enters will receive a 10 percent discount on their next purchase from www.AllModern.com, one of the leading online retailers in modern furniture, decor and accents.

"The living room is the one space in a home where many people feel as though they are really restricted from expressing themselves," says Gidding. "It tends to be very exposed and gets a lot of attention from friends and family, so people end up creating something that doesn't necessarily fit with who they are, and that's a missed opportunity."

To remedy this, AllModern.com has assembled a $25,000 grand prize package that includes furniture, accents, and more from Gus Modern, Herman Miller®, Missoni Home, Blomus, ET2 Lighting, and Inhabit, with John Gidding providing his professional expertise in redesigning the room. Second and third place will receive $2,000 and $1,000 in modern accessories, respectively.

To enter the contest, simply go to www.allmodern.com/chic and briefly describe how a modern update to your living room will help you unleash your chic side.

After all entries are received, AllModern.com's panel of judges will choose state finalists, asking them to submit a picture of their living rooms. The finalists' submissions will then be posted on www.facebook.com/CSNStores, where fans of All Modern will be able to vote for their favorites.
