Translating Trends: Peacock Inspired Home Furnishings
Peacocks’ iridescent imagery has certainly played a role in design over the ages, more recently their feathers as both a motif and literal décor accent. Now we’re starting to see a resurgence of the venerated bird in accessories, depicting the peacock in its full glory. Add some prettiness to your presentation with this lacquered wooden peacock tray from DwellStudio. Don’t entertain? It also comes with a wall cleat so you can hang it as a piece of art. Add a pop of pink and gold with these striking peacock pillows from Global Views or turn your dining room brilliantly blaze with color on these 9” diameter salad plates from Z Gallerie.
Global Views' petite peacocks perch nicely next to books and other collectibles, but if you want a true showstopper (after all, peacocks were born to show off), go for the gusto with this 38” x 22” ceramic peacock in a gorgeous turquoise blue.
This fanciful peacock quilt from Anthropologie is so colorful, we recommend keeping it inside, lest it might attract the actual bird.
