Kittinger Furniture adds realism to set of ‘White House Down'
July 2, 2013,
BUFFALO, N.Y. — Domestic manufacturer Kittinger Furniture had an edge when it came to producing set replicas for action movie thriller "White House Down."
For four decades, the high-end company has been producing furniture for the presidential residence, including the Cabinet Room and Oval Office. Kittinger made three sets of White House replica pieces for the movie's set.
Released last weekend, "White House Down" features Channing Tatum as a Secret Service job applicant who tries to rescue the president, played by Jamie Foxx, from a paramilitary group that has taken over the White House.
Kittinger said in a press release that Sony Pictures Studio spared no expense in replicating the Oval Office.
Kittinger also was commissioned recently to provide Oval Office furniture replicas for the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas.
