Vitra Eames House Bird

Product information

Of the many items decorative and functional to have adorned the legendary Eames house in California, one which has stood for over fifty years is the figure of a black wooden bird. A revered icon of American folk art, it was clearly one of Charles and Ray Eames' more prized possessions gleaned from their extensive travels, and appeared as an accessory in numerous of the Eameses' photographs. Vitra have faithfully recreated this intriguing piece so your home too can be graced by its friendly presence.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elegant The "House bird" is incredibly simple, elegant and I'm delighted that I bought it. A design classic to enjoy. 28 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish and Understated Had seen this in a magazine and came across it by chance on a display in the furniture department. It was just what I was looking for and looks perfect. 28 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just great! I had seen this on John Lewis website and decided I wanted to buy it but really wanted to see it "in person" first. Unfortunately, my local store didn't stock it and staff didn't expect any stock, so I had to buy the bird blind on line. I'm so glad I did though - it really is lovely, very sleek and tactile and looks great on white gloss unit. Would definitely recommend the bird but even though I'm the world's biggest internet shopping fan, this does show how difficult buying decisions can be when you cannot see/touch the item you're looking to buy. 25 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous! Have wanted this house bird for some time. Xmas gift and I love it! Did not disappoint. If you're undecided, go for it. I love it. I would like x4 of the eames vitra chairs and am saving for these next. 26 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Iconic Saw this ages ago and finally bought it. Looks perfect on Conran open white gloss shelving, also from J Lewis. I love it! 15 September 2013
