When we’re talking about our fine-feathered friends, any home is a good home—birds will nest in the damnedest places. But why not go for style? After all, it’s your garden decor at stake, and we can do way better than scraps of wood for creatures who sing for us and eat up all the nasty bugs. We’ve gone house hunting for the funkiest avian crash pads available. Here are eleven of the best.
Lantern Birdhouse by Jonathan Adler
The birdies may not fully appreciate the elegant curves of this hand-thrown stoneware in matte white glazed finish, but you will. This birdhouse comes with a natural jute rope for hanging. Bonus: Adler pottery is made by artisans in Peru, assisted by Aid to Artisans, a non-profit organisation which connects North American designers with craftspeople in developing nations.
