Folk-art-inspired designs by Charles and Ray Eames

Celebrated midcentury modern designers Charles and Ray Eames filled their house with objects found on their travels, including a simple and elegant wooden house bird that they brought back from the Appalachian Mountains. Now, Swiss family-owned furniture brand Vitra has replicated the American-folk-art-inspired sculpture in solid alder wood. The bird comes in a black or walnut finish with a steel wire base.
