Get the Look: 31 Modern Menorahs

Today is the start of the holiday/present season at my house. It is my oldest son’s birthday—he’s 13. Not sure how that happened. But so begins the onslaught of material consumption. Chanukah is in three days. Before I go to bed I’m going to pull out our menorahs so I can start chipping away at last year’s wax drippings (unless by some miracle—’tis the season after all—I cleaned them before returning to the velvet boxes last December.)

We have a few menorahs: the electric one all Jews grew up with, that goes in the window; beautiful modular ones from MoMA that my mother-in-law gave us; a traditional “Tree of LIfe”; a more contemporary version of the tree, from a friend as a wedding gift; a cute metal train I purchased for the boys when they were little; and an artisan-made wrought iron menorah, also from my mother-in-law (who’s not even Jewish by the way, but loves to participate).

There are a number of modern menorahs available, some by Israeli artists, others by contemporary Jewish architects and designers (Jonathan Adler, he’s a Jew). Here are 31 of my best modern menorah finds.

Get the Look: 28 Modern Bird Houses and Bird Feeders

I’m not exactly Ms. Outdoorsy Birdwatcher Woman, and mostly I find their incessant early morning tweeting an annoyance, but I do like the idea of feeding the little guys (must be the Jewish mom in me). And I love the new styles of modern bird feeders and bird houses that have recently become available.

I have a copper bird feeder I bought for my husband years ago when we had a house with a little roof deck and yard outside D.C., but we moved to Boston before we had the chance to use it. I hang it on a severed tree branch in our Truro yard every summer. If I fill it with chunky seeds, we get a serious influx of  crows, who then raid my sad little garden. (Who knew crows like cucumber?) Squirrels like to raid the feeder too. I’ve since switched over to a feeder that dispenses only skinny seeds, in hopes of attracting more pleasant feathered friends.

As outdoor rooms become more popular, along with clean lines and a modern sensibility, there have been more and more stylish contemporary outdoor furnishings available. Here’s a roundup of 28 favorite modern bird feeders and bird houses from StyleCarrot partners and other sources for your birding pleasure.
