I know you are wondering, just what is the Red Chair? It all started out in the winter of 2012, when fellow innkeeper Beth Colt posted a picture on Facebook of her simple Red Chair. Everyone thought the chair had been purchased at a local antique store, but no, the humble chair arrived from a land fill. This piece of Americana, this lowly Red Chair, has been elevated to celebrity status among innkeepers across the nation. It is a consciousness raising experiment among innkeepers and on September the 23-25th the Red Chair will be arriving in Boyce, Virginia at L’Auberge Provencale.
We plan on photographing the Red Chair here at the inn, in the gardens, in the orchard, on our spacious front porch and then I will be traveling around the local countryside photographing the Red Chair in inspirational settings of the Shenandoah Valley. I will be sharing our photos of the chair on our facebook page as well as here on our blog. Join us for this inspirational travel journal with the Red Chair which has taken on a personality all of it’s own.
This is a barn raising of sorts from New England all the way to California, with stops at wonderful inns along the way. We hope you join us for this fun project chronicling the adventures of the Red Chair.
Plan your escape to our bed and breakfast near Washington DC – maybe you will get a photo in the red chair!
