The Peacock Room Collection is inspired by the wallpaper in the "Peacock Room" of Stanford White's celebrated summer house on Long Island, Box Hill. The "Peacock Room" at Box Hill still has the original peacock Wallpaper that Stanford White, the Gilded Age's most famous architect, installed on its eaved walls above the wainscotting. It is a magical room once entered, after a long dark hallway there is a burst of Peacocks overhead. The wallpaper frames a large window that looks out onto the Long Island sound. The Peacock Collection includes a graphic, modern version of the peacocks wallpaper. The Peacock Room Collection is produced as a collaboration between Astek Inc. and Genevieve White Carter of Box Hill Productions.
