The Emanuelle Chair: a Sex Icon made of Rattan

Emanuelle Chair

The Peacock chair became the Emanuelle Chair In the 1970s. This throne-like chair with a massive back made of rattan, became a tool for being sexy after the release of the film and the poster-image for the rated X movie Emanuelle; in which the lead-actress Sylvia Kristel posed topless in such a chair. (She did that, or had to, for many years to come.) It became an iconic image associated with sensuality and/or plain sex. Anyone who posed in a Peacock chair became sensual in an instant. And so, it those days you will find images from Julio Iglesias to Brigitte Bardot in a Peacock chair. Amazing!

Exotic Morticia Addams Chair

For people who were old enough to watch TV in the 1960s: you know the chair probably as being linked to the The Addams Family tv series. Mom Morticia Addams sat in one all the time. If you were born in the early 1900’s the peacock chair would have an exotic connotation to it as well, For the first time western culture came in touch with Asian design and materials.There lies the origins of the peacock chair: to be specific in the Philippines.

Fun with Paintings by Javier Mayoral

Fun with Paintings by Javier Mayoral

The paintings (acrylics on wood) by Javier Mayoral are based on random texts, with just the right imagery added to them. Some are sexy, some are not: but all illustrations a little bit absurd.. So much fun and pretty at the same time. Available from pulpbrother.com. Price ranges from from $150 to $200.

As we speak (January 2018) the ‘Mustache’ painting on the left is still for sale. Javier Mayoral’s production seems high, so it’s maybe nice for you to follow him on instagram: @pulpbrother

Vogue Magazines allover the world March and April 2012

Vogue Nederland will be launched tonight (3/20/2012).
Vogue Nederland? What’s Nederland; you ask of us. Well it’s the Dutch pronunciation of The Netherlands. If you think that’s a region of the Shire you’re wrong. In fact it’s a tiny Kingdom in Europe, next to Vlaandren, which is a Dutch speaking region as well. That’s about 20 million people all together. (Mandarin Chinese is spoken by over 1 billion people, just so you know).
Anyways, we took a look at some covers, made worldwide, for the April issues of 2012. And asked ourselves what does a cover reveal about a country?
