NEW YORK-San Francisco furniture designer Dylan Gold is the season two grand prize winner of "Macy's Million Dollar Makeover with Clinton Kelly," announced on television last week.

After a makeover with Macy's style expert Clinton Kelly and a formal business pitch to celebrity judges Martha Stewart, Tommy Hilfiger and Marcus Samuelsson, Gold secured his place as the ultimate winner of $1 million and the opportunity to sell "Dylan Gold Design Furniture" at select Macy's stores.

After quitting his job to pursue his furniture design dream, Gold, 37, started Dylan Gold Design Furniture. With his desire to "fill the void between cool concept and factory cheap stuff," Gold is ready to take his company to the next level, expanding his line to offer both high-end and affordable retail products.

"Hard work, along with the help of my friends and family have gotten me this far, but with the additional knowledge and support I now have from Macy's, I can build my business, my brand, and realize dreams I've had since I was a kid," Gold said in a Macy's statement.
