House Beautiful’s 4th Annual Chair Scavenger Hunt kicks off on Wednesday and I’ve got a chair in the mix. The magazine has assigned StyleCarrot this ikat-patterned Dane recliner by La-Z-Boy. Like it? You could win it.
On Wednesday ant Thursday, the HB team will hide 20 black and white chairs (including this one) in iconic locations around Los Angeles. Follow @HouseBeautiful and @StyleCarrot on Twitter for clues on where to find and win my chair in LA! We’ll be marking tweets with hashtag #hbchairs.
UPDATE: On Thursday, March 7 at around 2:30 PT the HB team will hide this chair in the vicinity of the Urth Café at 8565 Melrose Avenue between Robertson and La Cienega. FIND IT!!!
With its classic lines, I can easily picture this chair in the New York City apartment of Laura, the 1944 film noir directed by Otto Preminger. In addition to fitting in with the decor, the ikat swirls also reflect the dizzying machinations of Laura, the femme fatale, who captivates the men around her.
If you’re wondering what the occasion is, this is all in celebration of House Beautiful’s March 2013 “Color Combinations” issue, for which they’re toasting the most classic color combination of all—black & white—along with the glory days of cinema. The event is called “Beautiful in Black & White.”
Other chair brands include American Leather, Crate & Barrel, Hickory Chair, Kravet, Room & Board, Target, and more, and participating bloggers include Tobi Fairley, Lisa Mende, Tamara Stephenson of Nest, Megan Arquette of Beach Bungalow Eight, Christian May of Maison21, Jennifer Mehditash of Dec-a-porter, and plenty of others. Feel free to gather clues for all of them!
