Go Home With Ellen DeGeneres (Kind Of) With Her Curated Auction Picks

Ellen DeGeneres has had a busy week. She crushed it in a lip sync battle with Jimmy Fallon, went on tour with Taylor Swift and whipped and nae-naed with no other than Hillary Clinton during The Ellen Show's premiere week, all while filming season two of her hit HGTV show Ellen's Design Challenge in Los Angeles.

The show's second season premieres in January 2016, but if you can't wait to see Ellen's furniture picks on TV, you can bid to take home pieces from her amazing personal collection in a curated online auction. All proceeds will benefit the Humane Society, a cause near and dear to Ellen's heart.
