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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
