(LAS VEGAS)-Do you have a unique and creative idea for an eye catching table design? If so, FurnitureLab, a leading hospitality furniture maker, is hosting a national design contest for all those interested in creating a graphic table top for an exciting opportunity to win a trip to attend The Hospitality Design Expo in Las Vegas on May 18-20, 2011.

The theme for FurnitureLab's table design competition is to create a dynamic graphic around the theme of "travel", where contestants are encouraged to think about what travel means to them and then effectively illustrate that on a table top. Participants can submit a collage, illustration, use artwork or photographs - anything goes! FurnitureLab staff will judge all entries and select a winning design that will come to life on a 24" table that will be displayed prominently at their booth during The HD Expo. Entries will be judged on creativity, aesthetics and how well the design translates on a horizontal table surface. The deadline for submission is Thursday, March 31 and there's no entry fee.

The winning designer will receive complimentary admission to The HD Expo, a special award during the show, a $500 gift prize to cover round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations in Las Vegas, a feature on FurnitureLab's website, and the actual table!

"We have been passionate about custom tables since the day we started because they let you make something that is truly unique," said Gregory Rapp, president of FurnitureLab. "This contest has been such an inspiring process and it reminds us that tables can do more than just support plates and elbows, but they can be a medium for expression, communication and truly make a place feel special."
