Naturally enchanting, bird motifs are as ethereal as they are elegant. Whether it’s a whimsical chinoiserie-style wallcovering or a sculptural toucan-shaped sconce, the right avian accent is a fanciful way to stylishly evoke the spirit of the great outdoors. Here, Business of Home presents seven decor pieces that will give your clients something to chirp about.
ETIENNE LANTERN — PORTA ROMANA
The Etienne lantern at Porta Romana hangs from the ceiling with a perched bird that seems like it could take wing at any second.

Inspired by Japanese watercolor paintings, the atmospheric Mizu Garden wallpaper panel by Mokum at James Dunlop Textiles features delicately hand-painted cranes and a dreamy pale-pink and green floral motif.
FALCON DINING CHAIR BY EGG DESIGNS — NGALA TRADING CO.
The layered rows of leather upholstery that adorn this dining chair by Egg Designs at Ngala Trading Co. mimic the feathers of a falcon, while a polished brass base provides a pop of color and contrast.

Composed of hand-cut jewel glass, Linda’s Garden by Gracie for New Ravenna is available as a full-scale mosaic wallcovering or as a foot-wide border, so you can employ it in a dining room or bathroom to make a spirited statement, or in a kitchen as an imaginative alternative to a traditional tile backsplash.
