House Beautiful's Yearly Chair Drop; Palm Springs Modern

New, 1 comment

LOS ANGELES—Another year, another batch of chairs being dropped in the middle of a city by a merry band of House Beautiful staffers. Starting March 6, to celebrate its annual Color Issue—color combinations, this time—the magazine's secret operatives will plunk down 20 black-and-white chairs from firms such as Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams and Kravet throughout L.A. Follow along on Facebook and Twitter (#hbchairs) as the locations are revealed—the first person to sit in a chair takes it home. There's a Pinterest contest, too. [CurbedWire Inbox]
