Of Little Birds (and Chickens)

I saw the picture below from Little Bird and the little fabric bird in the photo immediately caught my eye! The Little Bird (pun intended) told me that it can be purchased from etsy here. The seller has made such lovely fabric birds! The fabrics are so pretty and I want them all! This pair of lovebirds is one of my favourite:
By coincidence, while doing research for work (for something totally unrelated to this) today, I found this green chicken rocking chair at Hayon Studio:
This is what the designer said about this piece: "The chicken, a rather unexplored shape, found its place amongst my green dreams. I wanted to portray this common bird as a sensational object by amplifying its characteristics and dimensions, turning it into a modern piece, one of great beauty and utility: a rocking chair. The movement, subtle and constant, would give the object a zoom-like trait, a sense of speed and dynamism. My green chicken had taken on a face, a shape, a place and a function."

This piece of work is like my dream furniture: it's green (my fave color), it's in one of my favourite shapes and it will fit perfectly with my new home decor (house decoration in progress). This is totally whimsical and absolutely rocks (pun intended again)! :)
