house beautiful's “beautiful in black & white” chair scavenger hunt & free giveaway!

in celebration of house beautiful's march "color combinations" issue, editor-in-chief, newell turner, will be launching house beautiful's fourth annual chair scavenger hunt right here in LA!  giving you the chance to win one of 20 fabulous chairs by following along on twitter to be the first to find a chair hidden at one of various locations throughout the city of angels.
since LA is home to hollywood, HB decided to incorporate a movie theme "beautiful in black and white" to their hunt this year, with 20 two-tone chairs by some of the top names in the industry to be given away.  when i saw my chair, bernhardt's sleek 1930's inspired "connor chair", i was instantly reminded of the fabulous deco/streamline moderne sets of the films of fred astaire and ginger rogers, particularly "the gay divorcee". i mean look at the all the zebra in the GIF below! ok, i admit i also just loved the irony of the title and wanted to use it. so sue me.  ;-)
so how do you win this fabulous chair? simply follow @housebeautiful and the hashtag #hbchairs on twitter. on march 5th, i'll be tweeting clues about where you can find this fabulous chair to be placed somewhere in LA on march 6th or 7th, and house beautiful will be retweeting them to the world at large with teh hastag #hbchairs, so watch their feed like a hawk!
hollywood glamor, black and white goodness, house beautiful, maison21 and a totally gorgeous (and expensive) ABSOLUTELY FREE bernhardt chair. how can you resist? 
to recap on how to win a chair, here's the official rules, stolen from my delightful friend, jennifer mehditash, of dec-a-porter fame. (she said it so well, why reinvent the wheel? and funnily enough, she also chose fred & ginger as her inspiration too... my plagiarism was meant to be).

It's as easy as 1 -2 3 to be part of the "House Beautiful Scavenger Hunt" & 
here’s how it works:
  1. Follow @HouseBeautiful on Twitter for clues about where to find and win “your” chair in LA between March 6th - 7th.
