Every home can benefit from a timeless sense of wonder and liveliness. The Danish design company Kay Bojesen is known for its fantastic combination of artful woodworking and elegance.
Here at Dotmaison we love how the company taps into a playful style that brings homes into touch with a youthful spirt. The design groups’ items capture a captivating feeling of fun and innocence that can brighten up any interior.
The above Kay Bojesen Harlequin Jumping Jack is a lovely example of how well the company brings energy and colour to its productions. The brightly coloured wooden figure is easy to hang up and enjoy.
With moving parts using the attached cords, the harlequin is inspired by the popular character from Italian puppet shows and performances. The ‘commedia d’arte’ of the Harlequin promises a wonderful display every time.
Kay Bojesen, the Danish designer who started the company last century, was famous for his renditions of animals in woodwork.
The above Kay Bojesen Teak Monkey is a beautiful example of the company’s continuing tradition of drawing inspiration from the natural world.
Available in different sizes, the cheeky monkey is handmade from teak and limba wood in a Danish workshop. With movable parts and features full of personality, the monkey figures are superb for adding playful life to any interior.
Another timeless design that could instantly transport children back to past days of fun and play is the Kay Bojesen Rocking Horse, Beech.
Made of smooth and strong beech wood, the rocking horse is ideal for kids galloping away into a dreamy relaxation. A design classic since 1936, the Bojesen rocking horse is produced in FSC certified beech wood and is sure to make a perfect gift for younger people. Easy to look after, the wooden horse can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
Another excellent animal design showing off the full scope of the Kay Bojesen artistic style is the Kay Bojesen Oak Maple Bear. First designed in 1952, the bear is just as popular today as it was then.
Made from untreated maple wood and oak, the fascinating look of the bear is ideal for play and as an ornament. With movable parts, the bear can be posed to have its arms open to greet its new home. Great for kids and adults alike, the bear is part of the reason why Kay Bojesen’s designs are so well known.
