for modern birds

April 15, 2013


Bird House

Mark Ellis worked at a contemporary furniture company for 20 years before he was laid off. After fruitless job searches, Ellis built a workshop in his basement in Charlotte, NC.

Three years ago, Ellis started designing modern, eco-friendly birdhouses, using a variety of wood scraps that he buys from hardwood floor manufacturers.

Made for the outdoors, his wooden birdhouses are popular with architects, design students and gift-givers of all ages.

More importantly, birds, such as wrens and finches, like them too. Among Ellis’ many designs, the Mid-Century Modern ($130 and pictured above) is a fan favorite.

To purchase, visit

Ellis and his birdhouses will be in Atlanta for the Dogwood Festival (April 19-21) and the Virginia-Highland Summerfest (June 1-2).
