Movie furniture

There are many movies that I like the decor for one reason or another. Elle Wood's bedroom in Legally Blond and her apartment in Legally Blond 2, for example. I like the melding the modern furnishings with pop colors. It takes the coldness out of modern. I love the pink boucle fabric on the Eero Saarinen's Womb Chair that appeared in her college dorm.  

However, I wonder if people would want the furnishings from a room in a movie. I noticed the chairs from the Hunger Games tribute dining area are currently available at It's is a kind of reverse product placement- you see the movie and find out about the furnishings instead of know the product then see it in movie. And, though I think the chairs look cool and possible even comfortable, I'm not sure that a reminder of the excesses of the Capital, which are depicted and egregious and despicable and the fear of the games, for hunting and killing other people, are something I want around my dining room table. Do I want people who saw the movie to think I am such a raving fan that I bought the chairs. It seems a bit obsessive. So, as cool as the chairs are, I an not sure the best marketing on them is to mention the movie. Especially since the book, and theoretically the movie is for teens, who typically do not purchase furniture.
