Eames House Bird, walnut

Charles and Ray Eames enriched the collage-like interior of their private home, the Eames House, with numerous objects and accessories that they brought back from their travels. For over 50 years the figure of a wooden bird has stood at the heart of the Eames House, the private home of Charles & Ray Eames — a piece of American folk art they especially appreciated and which they frequently used as an accessory in their photos.
