I’ve always been a bit fascinated by cuckoo and grandfather clocks. They have an imposing presence and can be a little bit spooky when you hear them echoing through an empty house. Fascinating though they are, they take up too much floor space, and I’d hate to have a huge clock be the focal point of a room.
This Walnut Bird Clock will give you some of the classic look of a cuckoo clock without the size — or the high price. It features a simple, one-dimensional design painted in white on reclaimed wood. It’s a little bit rustic, with the look of natural wood serving as the main surface. But it does have a graphic quality that gives it enough of a modern edge to satisfy me.
I can’t promise I’ll be making this purchase anytime soon, but I’ll definitely consider it next time I want to add a little whimsy to my walls.
Why it’s Green:
- Handmade in the U.S.
