Pretty in Pink
Flamingos don’t just impress humans with their vivid feathers! The pinkest flamingos appear more attractive to each other. Why? It’s most likely a sign of a healthy diet that is full of the tasty shrimps and algae to which these beautiful birds owe their colouring. But did you know that baby flamingos aren’t born pink, but rather grey or white? Very fitting, then, that our flamingo pillows come in an array of colours—from pink to blue, to black and white.
There’s a story behind the popularity of flamingo pink. While flamingos were considered kitsch during the 20th century, fashion designers of the 2010s revolutionised this image. The quirky pink birds thus became associated with haute couture, which led to their democratisation in retail and social media. So much so, that Bahamian national reserves home to flamingos have seen a surge in visitors in recent years. All the more reason to recreate those holiday vibes at home by combining flamingo cushions with colour-popping ice cream cushions.
Chillin’ on one leg
Every day, animal-lovers flock to natural parks to see flamingos in their element. In fact, Flamingo Land is the most visited zoo in Britain. There you can marvel at our feathered friends as they bathe one-legged to conserve energy—all the while maintaining their grandeur and grace. The place where flamingos can best be appreciated, however, is in their tropical homelands of Africa, South America and Asia. So couple your flamingo cushions with exotic fruit cushions and turn your interior into your very own flamingo wonderland.
