One decorating trend I’ve been seeing a lot of lately is birdcages. At first, I wasn’t too keen on the idea. Images of feather-filled pet store cages and old episodes of Looney Tunes featuring Tweety Bird being pursued by Sylvester the Cat came to mind. Not exactly something I would want to be reminded of every day. It took a while, but eventually, I was able to look past their function to their form. They really can be beautiful pieces of sculpture.
This Bamboo Barrel Birdcage from Anthropologie is a perfect example. The rounded form has a distressed
white finish that makes it unique and stunning. So again, I’ve found a piece that would be right at home in a shabby chic room — and I actually like it!
Why It’s Green:
- Made of bamboo and rattan
