The power of peacocks has influenced the design and art world for a number of reasons revolving around spirituality, famous logos, and trendy interior designs. The peacock has a relation in many religions that connects the pheasant with patience, kindness, compassion, knowledge, and love. This creature has appeared in many different forms throughout time. Some examples are below.
Artworks that have Peacock Influences:
Although these pieces of artwork contrast with each other, they are both great examples of how peacocks have emerged in art through time. Another great example of how the peacock has influenced the public is the logo for NBC. On May 22, 1956 the original eleven feathered bird designed by John J. Graham had been released as the NBC logo. Later in the mid 80’s the image was altered to show only 6 feathers.
The Peacock Influence in the Interior Design World:
At the beginning of the 2012 year, the company Greenhouse Fabrics debuted it’s book called, “Eclectic Elements”, which came out featuring a very popular fabric that showed the image of peacock feathers. From the day of this book debut, the fabric was extremely popular and has been used on many different furniture pieces.
One great thing about this fabric is that it incorporates a metallic stitch in the pattern giving it a whimsical modern approach to the traditional image of peacock fabric. Another reason this particular fabric has had such a great response is it’s terrific use of color. This pattern comes in many different color ways!
The image of the peacock has also been a big trend in interior design, regardless if its in fabrics,or a mural on the wall. It has shown itself to be a pronounced design that many are drawn to. Check out below to see what I mean!
The last place that peacocks have influenced the interior design world is in their color. The “peacock” color, very similar to a caspian blue, has emerged through out the past 5 years as the cool trendy color. This color pairs up well with warm colors, such as the color of the year “tangerine tango”. The color does not appear to be too vibrant in color although it has a major presence in a room. Below are a few examples.
