Have you heard about House Beautiful’s Annual Chair Chaise? This is the 4th year House Beautiful Magazine has held a scavenger hunt. This year’s hunt is in Los Angeles. It’s quite a fun event. Twenty chairs and two tables will be strategically placed all over the city of Los Angeles and will be given away. People who follow the clues on twitter to find the chairs then answer the questions correctly once on location will win!
Yesterday I got an invitation to participate in this fun event. It is part of the celebration of the March 2013 “Color Combinations” issue of House Beautiful. The tribute to the most classic color combination I know will launch on March 6th in Hollywood. This exciting social media campaign will be kicked off by none other than the fabulous editor-in-chief, Newell Turner and is called:
“Beautiful in Black and White”
I am so excited to be asked to participate! House Beautiful’s Scavenger Hunt drop 20 chairs ranging from mid century modern to a classic wing chair randomly throughout the city of LA with the help of sponsors and Jenni Pulos from Bravo’s Flipping Out and Interior Therapy.
Wanna win a chair? All you have to do is follow along on twitter to get hints on where the chairs are hidden. Hiding spots are all iconic venues within the city of angels. If you are the first to find a chair, you win that chair! It’s that simple!
So here is the first chair I will be tweeting hints about….
“This classic 1603 wing chair dares to make a statement! With its curvaceous exaggerated wings and spot on fabric, this is sure to become your favorite place to take a break and relax”!
In the movie, a common Cockney girl, Eliza Dolittle, becomes the pinnacle of English society, after a makeover by Professor George Higgins. Lee Industries worked a little “makeover magic” themselves on this basic wing chair. Not only did Lee Industries take the liberty of exaggerating the lines of of the wing chair’s simple frame, but added an updated ikat fabric, and nailhead trim to create a “a fair lady” that will be a stand out in any room in your home.
Here is a clip from the movie, enjoy!
