While #KayBojesen originally trained as a silversmith under GeorgJensen, it's the #playful #wooden #toys that he is best known for.  Puffins are known as 'sea parrots' in danish (#søpapegøje) due to their colourful beaks... #Bojesen's #Puffin beak features colourful stripes by #danish #painter Svend Johansen.  Created in #1954, this #beechwood #bird was considered one of Bojsen's 'lost' #designs, until it was reintroduced in #2013 by @KayBojesen.

#NewYork based #Sculptor #DavidWeeks is known for creating #wooden toys and collectables that charm the young and old alike.  #Hattie the #elephant is named after a real elephant that lived in Central Park Zoo.  Like the other wooden #animals in Weeks' range, she is fully posable thanks to clever construction and rubber band ligaments.  You can make her dance, run, sit or even do a handstand.  Made from sustainable #beechwood.  Available from @areaware.

A common theme in almost any photo of #CharlesandRayEames' house was their familiar #black #bird.  The #EamesHouseBird as it is now referred was not in fact an #Eames #design at all, it was rather one of their favourite pieces of collected #art.  The bird is commonly thought to be a #crow or #raven created by #artisan, #CharlesPerdew during the early #1900s.  Perdew made a living by hand carving #wooden bird decoys.  He created birds in many variations which reflected the local fauna along…

The #RoyalLifeGuards (#DenKongeligeLivgarde) have watched over Demark's castles since 1658 - with their bearskin hats, red gala uniform and a cross on their fronts.  The order was created by King Frederik III and serves two roles: as a front line combat unit, and as a guard/ceremonial unit to the Danish monarchy.  #KayBojesen's #RoyalGuardsmen have watched over #Danish nurseries and living spaces since #1942.  Like their live counterparts, they also serve two roles: as a living room…

#Midcentury #scandinavian #designer #GunnarFlørning created the #SiameseCat for #Danish company #LauridsLønborg in #1958.  The cat is his most #iconic #design, selling over 300,000 pieces across Europe, America and Japan in the 1950's and 60's. Unfortunately, Gunnar had to retire in 1965 due to developing a wood dust allergy. Lucky for us, this beloved #wooden #cat has nine lives, and has recently been re-released by @luciekaas

Some design is not just #beautiful... it's #foxy.  This clever #fox is part of #JonathanAdler's #Menagerie collection of #ceramic #animals. Each animal is #designed by @jonathanadler his studio in #Soho, then taken to Peru where each piece is #handcrafted by skilled #artisans in their fairtrade workshop.  This #sly guy is just at home in your garden as on your shelf and has brought #ceramics back into vogue for high end #designer wares.
