Plum Crazy For Peacock Chairs

"If a man knew anything, he would sit in the corner and be modest; but he is such an ignorant peacock, that he goes bustling up and down, and hits on extraordinary discoveries." —Ralph Waldo Emerson


Is there a more glamorous chair than the peacock chair? These ladies don't think so... I want to go to that party.

I have fallen in love with all the different styles of peacock chairs, but this laser-cut plywood chair by Ferruccio Laviani is to die for. It is actually more than a chair, it is a piece of art.

This classic style from Globe West will always be my favorite. I just want to sit in this chair so bad—I would feel like a Moroccan princess. The detail on this chair is so intricate and feminine.

Here we go—just beautiful. Every woman should have one!

And how fun are these from Terrace Outdoor Living? The scale and clean lines of this chair make them such a modern, updated version of the traditional peacock chair. And I absolutely love the stripe effect!

And then there is the whole sexy side of this chair. Now anyone would say that this is HOT!

I don't even want to sit in this one. I just want to look at it. So amazing!

This is a style of peacock chair, but it looks more like a butterfly about to take off to me—amazing, and looks pretty comfortable, too! (I really want to be at that pool right now... where it that, does anyone know?) 

Now Format Furniture has taken simplicity to a new level, with this slip-covered version of the peacock chair. This one is all about line.

And this might be the coolest one yet. Who weaves these chairs? It must take so much time and labor.

Party for three! Just plain awesome.

And the vintage peacock chair makes a wonderful vignette, as well. I love the dominating design element that it brings to a space. Even if you never sit on it, it is more just to look at.

Oh, and one last one for you. I know they look like pieces of candy, but what a fun way to give one of these treasures a new look! DIY with a vintage find.

Which one do you think this guy likes the best? Which one do you?
