peacock chair by hans wegner

While doing some research for yesterday’s post about Wegner’s tree-legged chair, I found another gorgeous chair by this designer. Despite the chair’s almost postmodern design, Hans Wegner designed the peacock chair as far back as 1947. With a clear resemblance to the peacock feathers, the back of the chair is constructed in soap-treated or lacquered ash, with the choice of matching or contrasting arms in teak. The seat is made from woven paper cord. Today the chair is being manufactured by Danish company PP Møbler.
