One of the most beloved decorative objects in the house of Charles and Ray Eames was a black, wooden bird known as the Eames House Bird. The bird can be seen in many photos of the famous designer couple, and it even made its way to a commercial poster of Eames chairs. The original wooden bird was a piece of folk art from the Appalachian Mountains, which Charles and Ray Eames found on their journeys. Like the original model, Vitra’s Eames House Bird is made of painted alder with steel wire legs.
