December 13, 2012 by insideout

Red Chair has arrived in the Berkshires!

What, you may be asking, is the ‘Red Chair?’ Well, here is a description from the Red Chair Travels website that will clarify:

“The Red Chair is a symbol, a movement,  a phenomenon,  a happening.  Not just a simple wooden chair, this bright red vintage object is moving from place to beautiful place, exploring the best of New England all this year.

Move aside Flat Stanley, lie down garden gnome, hang yourself out to dry traveling pants… the Red Chair has arrived and captured the hearts and minds of America.  This humble desk accoutrement, crimson paint peeling and wooden legs wobbling, will journey around New England building connections, meeting innkeepers and generally exploring some of the most beautiful corners of our country.”
