The product list is not optimal for contest of CoContest, because the catalog is limited and the list does not include the link and the prices of the product. We suggest to use CoContest Template with all the information required by the contest. If you are using elements that are not available on homestyler , use the catalog for illustrative purpose and indicate a number in plan to indicate which article correspond in the furniture schema.
