It’s time to pile the truck with gorgeous chairs and hit the road — House Beautiful’s 4th Annual Chair Chase is on!
This year Hollywood is the destination and black and white is the starring color combo. Jump to the bottom for the full how-to-play information.
Here are SpecD’s pairings of our favorite black and white classics and a selection of the House Beautiful chairs that will be given away next week.
“Rebecca” Academy Award Best Picture 1941
Chair: Grace Home’s Duke of Devonshire chair
Chair: American Leather’s Tori Chair
Why: When only grandeur will do.
Why: Wing chair to ward off drafts, comfort for all the tromping across the moors, and the fabric’s turbulent swirls evoke the stormy setting
Why: Veda’s aspirations for wealth and glamour
Why: Just like Boo Radley, looks scary but is actually as nice as nice can be
Why: Outdoor natural wicker is what’s needed in steamy climes
Why: Strong and solid, just like architect Howard Roark
Why: Traditional spinster Charlotte Vale gets a glamorous make-over, just like this wing chair in chic Ikat Coal fabric
Why: The imperial profile of this throne befits the world’s greatest star — Norma Desmond was big, it’s the pictures that got small.
Why: Mommy Dearest loved to preen in front of her mirror.
Why: Masculine and beautiful.
Why: Although wealthy harridan Violet Venable wants to lobotomize her niece, the interior furnishings of her New Orleans manse are impeccable.
Why: There’s no place like home, and I’d love to have this one in mine.
