Through the years, bird motifs have been a recurring theme in home and fashion circles, and the humble feather, in its many delicate forms, has been a classic accessory, coveted for its artful beauty.

“Feathers have been around for years upon years,” notes interior designer Ken Jorns of Kenneth Jorns & Associates in Fort Worth and Dallas. “While they have been used in floral arrangements … and some furnishings, there seems to be a push on the smaller items such as accessories for dining, framing, art and pillows.”

Gordon Andahl, a spokesperson for Z Gallerie, says feathers create texture and bring an organic quality to any space. “Their versatility allows them to add a look that ranges from natural to delicate to exotic,” he explains.

Here are a few recent sightings of this classic design feature that might inspire flights of fancy about feathering your own nest.
