Looking for a cool modern wooden crow figurine/pet for your 1950s mid-century home decor? Decorate your house in style with the Eames House Bird from the Vitra Design Museum! Originally discovered by the designers in the Appalachian mountains, the "Bird" was such a pleasant modern object that it became the preferred pet of Charles and Ray Eames. The Eames Bird doesn't do any monkey business and as a bonus, you don't need to cope with the squawking and screeching of a real crow flying around your living room or bedroom. Now won't you agree you will be a lot happier with a wooden bird? The Eames House Bird is a classic icon of mid-century modern design and a great decorative modernist home accessory.

The Eames House Bird by Vitra is a beautiful and highly decorative modern accent piece! Charles and Ray Eames augmented the interior collage of the Eames House with numerous objects brought back from their extensive travels. Produced in Appalachia in the 1910s, this anonymous black bird from the Eames House rose to stardom in the 1950s when it appeared in silhouette with a group of Eames DKR chairs. The figure of a black wooden bird evidently one of their most prized objects of American folk art has stood in the center of the Eames House living room for over fifty years. The Eames House Bird is also seen as an accessory in many of the photographs which were taken by Charles and Ray Eames.
