One of my fondest memories of my grandparents’ house is of an old German cuckoo clock that my grandfather especially loved. It was old-fashioned, hand-carved, and every single morning, he would remember to wind that clock before he left for work. I remember sitting underneath it constantly, waiting and waiting for a new hour to strike so I could watch the dancers go around in a circle, and see that little cuckoo pop out of the top.
Sadly, it’s probably not terribly stylish now to have one of those big, clunky clocks on your wall. But I still love the idea of that little cuckoo – so when I spied this thoroughly modern interpretation of the classic over at CB2, I couldn’t help but covet it. Those clean lines and minimal colors couldn’t be further from the original, but it still makes me smile.
What do you think? Would you hang a cuckoo on your wall? –Becki S.
