Birds have always been popular in decorating and now I am seeing birdcages everywhere, too!
With over 9,000 products on my site, The Well Appointed House, each and every day I see trends emerging as we add unique new products. I can’t help but notice that these charming little bird houses are popping up in our lighting, tabletop and art collections! There seems to be a Birdcage Craze…and no, I am not referring to the movie with Robin Williams!
Birds were originally caged for their exotic beauty nearly four centuries ago in ancient Egypt. Doves and parrots were early favorites. The first crude bird cages were likely made of twigs, rope mesh, reeds or bamboo. Gradually, as birds became more popular with the wealthy, cages became more elaborate. Bamboo and wooden cages were seen in many kitchens in the early American colonies and heavily ornamented bird cages became popular in the Victorian parlor. Today we see birdcages everywhere, and what better place to look than The Well Appointed House.
Our hanging Birdcage Lanterns will provide genteel, ambient lighting for romantic or festive occasions. Priced at just $165 each, perfect for setting just about any mood!
