The March issue of House Beautiful is all about “Color Combinations” and in celebration, the magazine is headed to Hollywood for it’s fourth annual Chair Scavenger Hunt, which will pay tribute to the most timeless and iconic color combination of all: Black & White. In homage to the glory days of cinema, House Beautiful editor in chief Newell Turner will launch the “Beautiful in Black & White” campaign in LA on March 6, when 20 stylish black and white chairs will be placed in well-known locations around the city and I’m inviting you to be a part of the fun!

As part of this fun contest, The House Beautiful team team asked me to come up with an iconic black and white movie to relate to the Kravet Oberlin chair and I immediately thought of the impeccably decorated sets in Alfred Hitchcock’s popular murder mystery movies which my grandfather was a huge fan of. Wing chairs often found their way into many of Hitchcock’s movie sets so it was hard to choose just one! Here are a few:
Strangers on a Train (1951)
And although not black & white, here are stills from the Hitchcock film, Rope (1948).
