During an exciting, one-hour special that aired last night on TLC, Macy’s revealed Dylan Gold of San Francisco, CA, as the season two grand prize winner of “Macy’s Million Dollar Makeover with Clinton Kelly.” Viewers tuned-in to watch as entrepreneurs Pat Pilla, Kathleen Selman and Gold vied to make their professional dreams a reality with the guidance of mentors who complemented each of their areas of business. 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, Dylan secured his place as the ultimate winner of $1 million and the opportunity to sell “Dylan Gold Design Furniture” at select Macy’s stores.

"This has truly been an unbelievable experience and I cannot thank Macy's enough for believing in me and allowing me this wonderful opportunity,” said Dylan Gold, season two winner of “Macy’s Million Dollar Makeover with Clinton Kelly. “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."
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.
