Eames House Bird 1928
Charles Eames Prized Object 1928
DesignReasons sells the Eames House Bird. Charles and Ray Eames augmented the interior “collage” of the Eames House Bird with numerous objects brought back from their extensive travels. The figure of a black wooden bird — evidently one of their most prized objects of American folk art — has stood in the centre of their living room for over fifty years. Also the Vitra Eames Mid-Century Black Wooden House Bird is seen as an accessory in many of the Eames’ photographs.
