Each season the Bird & Tale Showroom presents a themed installation. We transform our showroom in order to highlight work that relates to a specific tale or concept. Our current theme is Colibrí, the word for hummingbird in spanish.
The Bird & Tale showroom features an eclectic and ever growing selection of items that include contemporary art, wallpaper, fashion garments, accessories, and unique gifts created by local and international makers.

Colibrí - Invite designed by Morgan Garleff
The Mayans gifted us a Hummingbird tale about the creation of the world and life. When gods created the world, they gave each living being a specific task. When they distributed all tasks, they noticed that no one had been given the mission to carry dreams and thoughts from one place to another.
The gods realized that the material to create life had run out, so they took a jade stone and carved a beautiful arrow. With a divine breath, it transformed into a hummingbird. Men tried to hunt it to adorn themselves with its feathers, but the gods' design was to forbid its capture. The gods had given the most noble of tasks to the most beautiful of birds.
This Bird & Tale presentation is filled with magic, fantasy, and romance. It is about the stuff dreams are made of, and how wonderful it is to share them.
This presentation will run through Sept 24, 2022
