The peacock chair has taken its seat in history, supporting not only the backsides of the rich and famous but also playing a key part in the Black Panther movement.The intricate design is one that has made its way in and out of fashion throughout the ages. Made from rattan, the peacock chair is lightweight but sturdy and is also referred to as the “Manila” or “Philippine” chair.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the exotic design of the peacock chair with its boho-chic style made it a staple of photography studios, parlors, and smoke rooms in wealthy homes. It quickly became a fad for celebrities and a symbol of pop culture for decades. Many a celebrity has been photographed in a peacock chair: Elizabeth Taylor, Cher, Dolly Parton, Diana Ross, Charlie Chapman, Zsa Zsa Gabor, and Stevie Nicks, to name a few.
There is something about the design that demands the attention of viewers and exudes an essence of power. In the middle of the 20th century, the chair was chosen for its apparent African-essence to play a part in the Black Power movement. Not merely a chair or a fashion statement, the peacock chair has earned its place in history. Although it is hard to clean, it is suitable for use as both indoor and outdoor furniture.
