I grew up in Bucks County, PA — a favorite destination for Canada Geese — so I consider myself to be a bit of a goose expert. Here’s what I know: They fly in a V-formation, make loud honking noises, poop everywhere and one is featured in the Wawa logo. If it sounds like I’m “negging” geese a little, it’s just because I’m so used to them in real life that I often take them for granted. Thankfully these goose-and-egg-inspired designs make me appreciate them a little more. They run the gamut from silly to elegant, much like the birds themselves.

    I never get tired of egg chairs. Hm…how would one look in my little cottage?

      They just seem so comfy and cool, don't they? Maybe in a reading nook? You'll have to have us over sometime to scout your place! :)

    I am adding the egg planter as a last-minute Christmas list addition…Santa can still deliver it in time, right?

    • Briana@HGTV says:

      Oh, hm! Well, the website says: "Order by 1:00PM EST. Mon.-Fri. for Same Day Shipping. Orders placed after 1:00PM and on weekends will ship the next business day. Free Ground Shipping on all orders shipped within the continental U.S." Not sure if they keep that up during the holidays, but there's a chance it'd come in time!
