How This Chair Became a Pop Culture Icon

There was once a time when everyone wanted a wicker peacock chair. That time was in the late 1970s and early '80s. You saw it in magazines and ads and especially album covers, which made it cool. But even then, it was a continuation of a long-lasting design. It came to be a stand-in for a throne. But eventually we figured out that it wasn't comfortable, took up too much room, and became rickety with use. Still looks cool though. (via Metafilter)
