Celebrity talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is launching her own design show on HGTV next year.

The show, called ‘Ellen’s Design Challenge’, is similar to ‘Top Chef’ only with furniture instead of food, reported People magazine.

Six contestants will work with expert carpenters to sketch, design and build various pieces of furniture within a 24-hour period. The winner, who will be determined by a panel of judges, will take home a cash prize.

“I’m so excited about this show because I love finding really special pieces of furniture. One time I found a beautiful one-of-a-kind armoire that spoke to me in a way I’d never experienced. It turned out there was a drifter living inside of it, but that’s a story for another time,” DeGeneres said.
