The Proud Peacock

Return of the Grand Peacock Chair ~

Once noted as a hippy bohemian beach chair, this 1960’s icon has made a comeback to Design MIX Furniture on modern grounds !  The origin of weaving raw, natural materials together dates back to primitive times, being one of the most widespread of all human activities. The return of this tropical porch chair hits the spot with such versatility & exotic charm, who wouldn’t want to soak up the sun or place this wonderful and demanding  shaped chair in a special corner or paired flanking a great side table.

The peacock chair was once called the “Hardest working chair in Hollywood”. The most hip to ever sit include some of the coolest cats of the 60’s & 70’s; Al Green, Elizabeth Taylor, Diana Ross & Brigitte Bardot. All of these legends have iconic photos featuring this woven masterpiece.

The earliest of all known to produce wicker & rattan work are Sumerian societies dating back almost 5,000 years.   Over time, sea trade made it possible for other cultures to catch on. This extension of basket weaving into furniture spread throughout Rome, the West Indies, Southeast Asia …
