The Red Chair Makes Journey Across New England
Move over Flat Stanley, the Red Chair is the newest travel icon
Stockbridge MA –Where travelers once held photos of Flat Stanley in unusual places, photographers now shoot photos of a humble red chair. Long considered simply a place to rest one’s buttocks, the lowly wooden chair has been elevated to celebrity status, and is being welcomed at inns and B&B throughout New England. It’s all part of a consciousness raising experiment among New England innkeepers, and this week the chair is made its way to Stockbridge and the Inn at Stockbridge
The Red chair arrived at The Inn at Stockbridge in time to coincide with the Christmas in Stockbridge weekend. The red chair was adorned with a traveling Santa as it made its rounds at historic places of interest in the Berkshires and Stockbridge. The red chair was photographed at the Inn at Stockbridge The Norman Rockwell Museum, The Berkshire Theatre Festival, Berkshire Botanical Garden, Chesterwood, & Kripalu.
Alice Len Schiller had the chair for 3 days and then brought it to its next destination in Cambridge MA. The Red chair saw the best Inns in New england in its journey.
