For those who have everything: Chicken footstools

Sally Jane Ebright's chicken footstools “offer a rustic but rich, zoomorphic alternative to the traditional ottoman.”

In a world “overrun by steel and glass,” we all can feel a bit alienated from nature when we’re lounging around the house. Though Kansas artist Sally Jane Ebright may not be able to cure all forms of modern ennui, her chicken footstools “offer a rustic but rich, zoomorphic alternative to the traditional ottoman.” Inspired by François-Xavier Lalanne’s sheep ottomans as well as by 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, hoping, she says, that the world might “pause with us for a moment and smile, too.”
