Why We Love It

The Icelandic designer Sigurjón Pálsson has created a range of characterful wooden birds. The Shorebirds simple unadorned silhouette gives them an almost stylized expression. At the same time, a great deal of care has been paid to the small details such as variations in body thicknesses, neck length, and the positioning of the legs and beak. This gives all three birds their own unique personality and allows the design to come alive.

Arrange the birds in a flock, combine different colors or include a single Shorebird within a small setting made up from other personal effects. The elegant Shorebird will look right at home in almost any decor and makes for a great house-warming gift.

  • Let your home decoration take flight with Shorebird – a range of solid wooden figures with a stylized yet spirited expression.
  • Shorbird is available in three sizes, inspired by the curlew, redshank and sandpiper.
  • The largest of the three birds is inspired by the curlew, with its long neck and distinguished, downwardly bent beak. An aristocratic creature, its long legs take slow, well-considered steps while looking cautiously around.
  • The middle-sized bird is alert and active like a redshank. This elegant bird is often to be found with other wading birds.
  • Finally, we have the sandpiper, a sociable little bird, often to be found in large flocks.
  • Allow them to stand alone or flock together to create a playful element on your shelf, sideboard, or dresser.
  • Shorebird is turned from solid oak, ash or walnut.
  • Legs in lacquered, black-plated or brass-plated steel.
  • If out of stock, item typically ships in 10-12 weeks.
