At our national conference in January, I heard there was going to be a "red chair" at the show, and I got very excited. We had just recently started watching the Graham Norton Show on BBC America, and the "red chair" is always part of the show.
The Red Chair at the innkeeping conference was something entirely different. It started as a red chair purchased by an innkeeper at a flea market, and one of her guests photographed it on the beach. The photo is beautiful, and it got picked up all over the internet. Soon the Red Chair was traveling to inns in other locations and is photographed everywhere. It shows the beautiful places in our country and begs you to "imagine yourself here." There is a blog dedicated to the Red Chair Travels, and you can find out where the Red Chair is now.
Still, it wasn't the "red chair" I had been expecting. I can only imagine what the entertainment part of the evening would have been like had it been the other "red chair."
