Flying High—Chic Bird Decor

Crate and Barrel, Fishs Eddy, Pottery Barn, Ballard Designs

Although a design classic for centuries, birds are winging their way back into the style spotlight today. Sleek, chic and crafted in materials that are very of-the-moment, this latest spin on nature’s fine feathered friends is something to chirp about. These are birds that flock together in high style no matter what look you’re into.

Crate and Barrel

Recently, I bought this Kiwi bird for a friend who’d just returned from a vacation in New Zealand.  Hand-crafted of richly grained mango wood and brass, this clever little chap adds a modernist touch and bit of whimsy. $32.95.

Fishs Eddy

For Mid-century modernists, there’s the Migration double old fashioned glass. It sports a wrap-around bird motif by artist Charley Harper, who drew it originally for school biology books in the 1950s. $11.50.

Pottery Barn

The Fauna Bird Print organic cotton duvet cover is a technicolor take on nature with larger-than-life illustrations of birds, butterflies and bugs in vibrant rainbow hues. Twin-California King duvet/$129-$179. Standard-Euro sham/$49.50-$59.50.

Ballard Designs

Handmade of glass and aluminum (with a layered antique gold finish), the Aviary etagere gleams like gold. So do the three songbirds perched on its textured branches. $599.25.
