The Upholstered Peacock is, as the name implies, an upholstered interpretation of the pp550 Peacock Chair from 1947, one of Wegner’s all time classics and one of his personally most beloved designs.
The almost complete covering of the chair makes it subtle, but at the same time a very integral piece to any room.
In the Upholstered Peacock, Wegner has repeated the arch from the original version and then covered the construction with fabric making a softer chair.
Leather is used for the neck- and armrests allowing for a subtle sense of comfort while maintaining a high resistance to wear in the most exposed areas.
The combination of leather and fabric is elegantly resolved. The way in which these two contradicting materials are so well balanced is a strong example of Wegner’s knowledge and sense for materials.
pp521 is upholstered using only natural materials like flax fibres, cotton, jute straps, palm leaves and horsehair. This is the only way to ensure that this kind of easy chair will be worn in rather than worn out with time.
