Pink Panther (1988) depicts a 1950s pin–up, modeled on the American B–movie actress Jayne Mansfield, with one hand covering a breast bared by a garment that has slipped down—a predicament for which Mansfield was notorious.

The American film actress Jayne Mansfield, one of the leading blonde sex symbols of the 50s and 60s, starred in several popular Hollywood movies that emphasized her platinum-blonde hair, hourglass figure and cleavage-revealing costumes. Although her film career was short-lived, Jayne had several box-office successes and won one of two golden globe awards nominations for The Girl Can’t Help It.
Ottiu designers translated Mansfield’s sexiness and beauty into modern furniture design, creating the Jayne Curved Armchair. Upholstered in cotton velvet with a pinewood structured supported by a brushed brass base, this mid-century modern armchair blends comfort with elegant curved lines. The Jayne Curved Armchair will be the ultimate eye-catching piece of your décor.
The Jayne armchair retails for 2790€ (approximately $3325).
Did you know that legendary Hollywood movie actress /sex symbol Jayne Mansfield and her husband, Mickey Hargitay, once lived in a mansion that was known as The Pink Palace? While it was painted pink on the outside and had a pretty crazy Pink Bathroom (that was not only carpeted wall to wall but also floor to ceiling) few of the interior rooms had a pink color scheme. Still, The Pink Palace – which included a custom-designed, heart shaped swimming pool — had a unique design aesthetic and no shortage of over-the-top decor!
