The decorative Charles Eames-inspired House Bird is a must-have addition to the interior of every style-led home. A prized possession of Charles and Ray Eames, the original black bird sculpture stood in the centre of their home for over 50 years.

Acquired during their travels through the Appalachian mountain region of the eastern United States, the bird is an artefact of traditional American Folk Art. Birds often symbolised freedom and friendship, and with its tapered beak and sleek tail, this graceful figure certainly has a spirited, friendly presence.

This solid wood reproduction is identical to the original, so you can experience the same pleasure the design brought to the Eames' household.

Charles Eames (1907-1978)

Considered as one of the most influential designers of the 20th century, Charles Eames was born in St Louis, Missouri. Perhaps decorated as the finest American designer of his generation, Eames was heavily influenced by his Uncle’s workings, the great architect William S. Eames.

Despite a healthy education studying architecture at Washington University in St. Louis, Eames best began to put his ideas into motion whilst working as a labourer at the Laclede Steel Company in the town of his birth. Here, he inherited first-hand knowledge and experience about engineering, drawing, and architecture, learning moulding and treatment techniques he would later become famous for.

Both Charles Eames and his wife Ray are still heavily celebrated on an international scale, especially for their work in the field of modern furniture. Both collaborated on numerous projects, earning them the AIA Twenty-five Year Award in 1977 and the prestigious Royal Gold Medal Award in 1979, a year after Charles passed away. Their work is still showcased at MoMA in New York, whilst in 1985 IDSA accredited Eames as "The Most Influential Designer of the 20th Century".
