Loll Designs birdhouses

Leave it to Loll to update the summer birdhouse. The Duluth-based furniture company already modernized the classic Adirondack chair and put their own spin on a tree swing, so birdhouses must have been a no-brainer. Their answer to avian living shares the same clean lines as the rest of their goods, and the colorful, feather-friendly homes have that same durable heft—these babies wont, er, fly away in a storm. The weather-resistant cubes, cubbies, and A-frames are made out of recycled milk jugs—part of the company’s eco-initiative that you can feel good about buying into. Go ahead, grab some binoculars and tell your neighbors you’ve got your very own backyard airbnb.
