Vitra Vitra Design Museum Eames House Bird Figurine

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.

Gorgeous Style - a Way to Remember

Janet from Calgary, AB– Verified Buyer

I bought this in honour of our son who tragically passed away this summer. He absolutely loved black birds - crows, ravens, you name it. He wrote a beautiful song about a crow which we used at his memorial. He was so happy, healthy and full of life - I just love looking at this stunning piece and knew he'd love it too. It's just fabulous in our living room and another great reminder of our 21 year old and his amazing life.

Authentic, simple, elegant

Anna from Toronto, ON– Verified Buyer

Beautiful piece. Excellent quality. The real deal. Worth every penny. We relocate her occasionally to keep it interesting. We love having an authentic symbol of the mid-century modern aesthetic in our home.

Kimberley from Sarasota, FL– Verified Buyer

Beautifully designed, well-made, and a piece piece of design history. Every home needs one so, it's the perfect wedding, birthday, anniversary, etc. gift. It's definitely the perfect gift for those people that appear to have everything and are thus, so hard to buy for.

Surprisingly Subtle but Beautiful

Michael from Royal Oak, MI– Verified Buyer

The Eames house bird arrived exactly as expected - the way the light reflects off the curves really highlights the shape and finish of the piece. We have it placed rather high and out of the way, but eventually most people visiting our living room comment about it.

Flawless simplicity

SLNT from Clifton Township, WI– Verified Buyer

Everything about this piece is perfect, from the design to the quality. The finish feels like satin and has a beautiful sheen to it that makes it look especially nice perched on my windowsill. Definitely worth the money.

What A Classic!

Steven from USA– Verified Buyer– Top 1000 Reviewer

I am not much for nick nacks or anything just sitting around to look pretty (and dust), but this is the exception! I love it. A real classic, made of solid wood. Very Substantial. A real investment you will have it for years!

Awesome, but Delicate

James 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!

Eames House Bird is a stunner

Rod 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.

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.

About the Manufacturer

Founded in Weil am Rhein, Germany, in 1950 by Willi Fehlbaum, Vitra has been the retailer of the works of many internationally renowned furniture designers. Throughout those 50 years Vitra has had one goal: to make the place of work as appealing, productive, and healthy as possible. Vitra furniture can be found in countless successful companies and organizations, as well as in the homes of many private individuals with an affinity for design.

Convinced that rooms and interior design have a decisive influence on people's motivation, performance, and health, Vitra has made it their mission to develop furniture and furnishing systems that stimulate, inspire, and motivate, while also offering the body comfort, safety, and support. In order to attain this goal, Vitra has worked with their specialized team and renowned designers. Over the years, Vitra has exemplified that they are not afraid to experiment with new and bold ideas and eagerly anticipate and look forward to facing the new challenges of the world of work.

Vitra is vigorously persistent in creating products of the highest quality. Once in the factory, the Vitra staff manufactures the furniture to precise standards, individually ensuring the quality of each product. The focus on quality does not end at the factory door. Providing clients with premier service is just as important as manufacturing furniture. In order to further ensure the high quality in all Vitra products, Vitra has set up their own test center which monitors products against criteria that are far more stringent than the statutory standards.
