Green chairs and the people who love them

As we mentioned earlier this week, Room & Board, Crate & Barrel, The Container Store and others are providing the seating. In 2010, the publication dropped 40 blue chairs around New York City, and last year gave away pink-hued chairs in Chicago.

The mag is dropping scavenger hunt-style clues into its Twitter and Facebook feeds. The Washington Post’s Jura Koncius is following along as readers snag their winnings. I’m also noticing that she’s dropping some chair-finding knowledge into her own Twitter feed, if you’re interested in that sort of thing.

A big fat clue for a free Thomas Pheasant Baker chair. Go to Georgetown near 37th & O Sts. NW at 11:15 today. #greenmag @HouseBeautiful
