Green With Chair Envy

'Matt' Wins Last Chair 19 at 14th & T Thursday afternoon

You may have noticed some strange goings-on Wednesday and Thursday in DC as House Beautiful conducted a citywide scavenger Hunt. U Haul trucks with follow cars cruised the city, Tweeting and Facebooking clues to their locations as DC furniture fanatics raced to win one of 19 fabulous green chairs.

The first booty to sit in the green booty won... and after chasing chairs all over NW Thursday, happy guy Matt nabbed this moss velveteen beauty (Otis Swivel Chair $699 retail) at around 4 PM Thursday at Room & Board's 14th & T location.  WP captured some of Wednesday's winners.

Room & Board, Crate & Barrel, The Container Store and others provided the furniture for the two day “Color it Green” campaign.

Runners up received cool canvas gift bags full of home improvement goodies from Benjamin Moore, House Beautiful's partner in the campaign.

And a green time was had by all.

Hi Susan - What a fun event!  And they are promoting their message, giving some businesses some PR, and getting a green message across!  Thanks for sharing this - I hadn't heard about it!

It was fun, Susan! They've done similar events in Chicago and NYC (2010). How often does someone hand out 19 chairs valued up to 1200.? Gotta love that!
