the other day, ez from creature comforts tweeted about this lovely illustration of a bird cage from clare owen (below), and it got me thinking about how i quite like the bird cage, as design motif. either as an accent piece of vintage decor, artwork or inspiration for a more modern mid-century modern lamp, the bird cage is seen all over the place, like birds of feather, flocking together, here’s a few examples of some interesting vintage-inspired bird cage finds.

  1. You’re so right – there’s something about a bird cage in design that I just love. That illustration is just beautiful. And now I’m completely in love with the lamp from anthro – too cool!

  2. Love the birdhouses! Barraveld International has a great selection of birdhouses like the one you posted…so great to put in a space as a ‘found’ piece!

  3. Love love love these vintage bird cages!!! I wish my home could support one more thing :p but it is so small, that i really keep it clean & simple! Hugs, Twiggs

  4. Thanks for that wonderful post, Victoria. Love everything on it and I just grabbed the vintage toaster cover for myself! I love a bird. I think I’m part cat. :-)
