The perfect match - my COCOCOZY Light Pillows and a beautifully designed chair!

House Beautiful is doing a chair giveaway next week...and this Crate & Barrel Petrie chair is one of the chairs being given away!

Here's what House Beautiful sent me about the chair giveaway:

"The magazine is coming to Hollywood to launch its tribute to the most classic color combination of all with an exciting social media happening called “Beautiful in Black & White.”  House Beautiful editor in chief Newell Turner  will launch the “Beautiful in Black & White” program in LA on March 6, when the HB team will begin secretly placing 20 black and white chairs in iconic locations around the city—all for the taking."

House Beautiful asked me to relate the chair to a classic black and white Hollywood movie.  Well, one of my favorite movies of all time is Notorious (1946).  Notorious is an Alfred Hitchcock film starring Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant.  The movie was on t.v. a few weeks ago and I took pictures of the screen (seen here) just because I love that movie so much (I'm a total old movie geek).

I didn't even know when I would use the photos and then House Beautiful emailed me earlier this week asking me to chat about their chair giveaway!  Not only did I have pictures of my favorite movie but the chair they offered me was a chair I use to shoot the COCOCOZY textiles collection on!  That's why I say a perfect match.  Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant are incredible in this spy thriller...there is so much chemistry between them - a classic duo.  I also think that this chair and my pillows go oh so well together in a classic marriage of black and white!

In addition to the 20 chairs...the House Beautiful scavenger hunt will also include a giveaway of other items including these black & white custom made Caesarstone side tables! These angular modern side tables have a strong silhouette...a little bit like Bergman and Grant!

P.S. Sorry posting has been so sporadic this week. Busy busy week for COCOCOZY. In addition to packing up 500 pillows and 275 throws for two very special orders, we are also sending out dozens and dozens of COCOCOZY Collection items to our retailers around the country! When it rains...it pours. This week has been crazy...and I'm sure next week will be so quiet!  CM who runs all things operations has been doing a fantastic superb job of organizing everything and getting it done.  CM and JW are joined by very nice SS and NG who are helping out this "packing week". Here are few pics of "packing week" at COCOCOZY.
