    While the seat fillers rushed to occupy empty seats in the former Kodak Theatre at last night's 84th Annual Academy Awards, celebrity presenters comfortably calmed stage jitters in the event's greenroom furnished by custom furniture maker, Pollaro. The company worked with Los Angeles-based interior designer Waldo Fernandez to complete the space, a throwback to 1930's and 40's Hollywood glamour. Known for their recreation of early 20th century furniture by designers like Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, Paul Dupre Lafon, and Armand Rateau, Pollaro contributed 11 pieces to the greenroom, including a sculpted Macassar ebony club chair and ottoman, a hand-carved cabinet gilded in 23 karats, and a Ceylon satinwood dining table—the entire contribution totaling more than $500,000.
