About the Designer
Charles & Ray Eames Charles & Ray Eames United States 

Charles Ormond Eames, Jr (1907–1978) and Bernice Alexandra "Ray" (née Kaiser) Eames (1912–1988) were American designers, who worked in and made major contributions to modern architecture and furniture. They also worked in the fields of industrial and graphic design, fine art and film.

Charles and Ray Eames augmented the interior “collage” of the Eames House 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. This bird figure from the Appalachian mountain region of the eastern United States has been seen as an accessory in many of the Eames' photographs. Based on the original artefact in cooperation with the Eames Family, the house bird will be a special piece for many years to come.

Eames House Bird

 from Corpus Christi, TX– Verified Buyer

I got this in and loved him so much, I purchased another. One perched on the shelf is great...but two is perfect. The Eames House bird is a must-have accent piece to any mid-century modern home.

We bought one for ourselves some time back and LOVE it. This purchase was for our son and daughter-in-law as a house-warming gift. They're equally enamored with it. And, we love your web site too!!!

Eames House Bird is a stunner

 from Union City, CA– Verified Buyer

I had seen the bird before but when it arrived I was surprised by how large it was. The distinctive shape and the quality and feel of the bird makes this a stunning piece. The solid black color makes the bird stand out against almost any background.

 from lafayette, LA– Verified Buyer

This is the quality I expect from Vitra and completely reinforced by decision not to fall for a cheaper version.
Delivered earlier than expected - and on a Saturday morning.

Awesome, but Delicate

 from Boston, MA– Verified Buyer

I love this bird. Unfortunately, he's a bit delicate. Because he sits on two nails for legs and rests on about an inch of thin tail, he can easily be toppled over if he gets in the way! And when he falls, his "feathers" and beak get chipped pretty easily. I am now the proud owner of two Eames House Birds, both a bit damaged but very much loved!
