Redmond is home to some very nice workspaces at businesses large and small.

Yet there might be a valid reason for you to nominate your workspace as one that’s … well, ugly.

CSNOffice.com has teamed up with interior designers and the host of HGTV’s “Destination Design,” Taniya Nayak in a nationwide “Search for the Worst Workspace” contest, featuring more than $15,000 in prizes.

Redmond residents and employees are encouraged to participate.

According to a press release from CSN Stores, “With the average human spending 33.3 percent of their lifetime at work, an old, disorganized or out-of-style workspace can upset more than just a person’s productivity. It can also affect one’s mood, morale and general outlook.”

That’s why CSNOffice.com is “looking to rescue woeful workspaces across the country, from homely home offices to cluttered, crummy cubicles to disgusting dorm rooms.”

Telling the world that your workspace is putrid makes us think of that song from “Sweeney Todd” about “The Worst Pies in London.”

Why would you want to publicize your pitiful workspace?

One grand prize package for the Absolute Worst Workspace will include a $5,500 Herman Miller office suite. Three first prize packages will be awarded for the Worst Home Office ($4,200 value), Worst Traditional Office ($2,100 value) and Worst Student Workspace ($2,000 value).

To enter, log onto CSNOffice.com/Worstworkspace, type in your e-mail address and dish the dirt about your disgusting digs.

All entrants will get a 15 percent off coupon code that can be used for office supplies from CSNOffice.com.

“We’d love to see some Redmond entries,” said Will Flanagan of CSN Stores. If readers mention that they are from Redmond in their written submissions, “we can send them an additional 15 percent coupon code to CSNStores.com, the mother site of CSN office. CSN has over 200-plus niche sites under its umbrella, including Cookware.com, Luggage.com, Strollers.com and more,” Flanagan added.
