In a world "overrun by steel and glass," we all can feel alienated from nature. Though Kansas artist Sally Jane Ebright may not be able to cure modern ennui, her chicken footstools (from $650) "offer a rustic but rich, zoomorphic alternative to the traditional ottoman." Inspired by François-Xavier Lalanne's sheep ottomans and Ebright's pet chickens, each bird has cast-bronze feet, a solid oak body, and feathers upholstered from hand-felted alpaca wool. Ebright and her crew labor for about a week on each chicken. Source: CoolHunting.com
