Laurel Crown Furniture In the Movies
Laurel Crown customers will see a surprising guest appearance alongside actors Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig in the 2011 summer blockbuster Cowboys & Aliens—Laurel Crown Furniture.
While theater goers munch on their popcorn, they will view our newly famous Victorian furniture prominently featured in a vintage passenger ferry set in the New Mexico Territory in 1873. In order to give the upscale ferry a more refined feel than the rough-and-tumble saloons featured elsewhere in the movie, Cowboys & Aliens producers sought out over 150 pieces from Laurel Crown’s extensive collection.
While a wide array of chairs, tables, sofas, and even mirrors were purchased, Cowboys & Aliens producers mainly focused their attention on our Chippendale and Victorian furniture collection. Certainly, this helped lend the scene the old-world feel the producers sought.
Of course, this is not just any ferry boat. That would be too boring. This ferry has been picked up by an alien spacecraft and dropped upside down into the desert. Thus, our pieces appear in various states of ruin as they are scattered throughout the ferry’s cabins. Despite this, we like to think our pieces still maintain their elegance and charm on the big screen!
In order to celebrate this other-worldly experience for Laurel Crown, all furniture featured in the movie will be on sale for the entire month of August! The featured furniture includes customer favorites such as our Chippendale Chair, Victorian Sofa, and Louis XV Armchair. While we can’t make any guarantees, we do not think your house will be lifted into the air by an alien spacecraft if you purchase any of these big screen worthy pieces.
