In the sunroom, a pair of barrel-back armchairs clad in a Brigitte Singh fabric flank a custom-made ottoman. The Chinese cloisonné floor lamps are topped with custom-designed shades; the room is painted in Farrow & Ball’s Folly Green.
I’d heard that when Grauman's Chinese Theatre first opened, that the ushers dressed in traditional Chinese garb. I assumed that it meant Hollywood’s version of “traditional Chinese garb” until I came across this shot. I don’t know how comfortable it would have been to work in these costumes, but it would have added a layer of authenticity, I’d imagine. This photo was dated 1927, which is the year that Grauman’s opened, so maybe these people are the very first group of Grauman’s ushers.
