They say you can’t teach an old circus horse new tricks. Luckily, that’s not true for Kay Bojesen’s delightful animal circus, where a proud beast from the 1930s will be galloping into the manège this autumn to take both new and old design-riders by storm. The Horse joins Kay Bojesen Denmark’s family of tufted and hoofed animals, from The Zebra to The Rocking Horse, and is made from oiled walnut just like its dark-wooded cousin The Dog.
Kay Bojesen was known for his ability to bring wood to life, and with its straight legs and striking mane, The Horse is the embodiment of Kay Bojesen’s magical touch. There are no moveable parts in the design, and yet it is still so lifelike. With its watchful eyes, bowed neck and majestic tale, the horse is ready to gallop off at any moment, and only a thin leather strap keeps the imagination and speed in check. The Horse – like The Dog – is made from solid, oiled walnut in an exclusive design that makes a perfect gadget for the desk, shelf or study. The figurine also makes a wonderful gift for design-loving cowgirls and boys of all ages.

There is no denying that designer Kay Bojesen was a real animal lover. During his lifetime, he created an entire circus of wooden animals, each more charming than the next – from the exotic Elephant to the delightful Dog. This autumn, Kay Bojesen Denmark has once again visited the design archives and found another dog to add to the collection: Tim. This charming and amiable miniature terrier created by Kay Bojesen in 1935 is big news despite its small size.
Kay Bojesen named the little terrier Tim and produced it in both light and dark wood types but never with a lead or collar, for naturally Tim walks his how charming path. And this autumn Kay Bojesen Denmark is setting two versions of Tim the Dog into the world – in natural oak and smoked oak – offering double the opportunity to start a Kay Bojesen kennel filled with four-legged friends. Like Bojesen’s other wooden figurines, Tim makes a wonderful present for birthdays, christenings, confirmations, anniversaries and all manner of special occasions where it’s good to have a loyal friend.
Throughout his life, Kay Bojesen had a soft spot for wood and a unique talent for bringing to life his designs using everything from teak to oak. Over the years, he produced a whole army of iconic wooden figurines and now Kay Bojesen Denmark is celebrating the designer’s softer side with a new category for the little ones: throw blankets. These children’s throws feature illustrations by Bo Bendixen and come in red and blue, making them perfect as christening and birthday gifts. Especially when supplemented by the other new product this autumn: a wooden rattle in untreated beechwood designed by Bojesen in 1932.
As the child grows, the throw can be used in the pram, on the sofa and on the floor, while older children can use it to make little wooden or wicker chairs more comfy or to take a nap gently wrapped in the dreamy soft material.As an extra little design detail, Kay Bojesen Denmark’s children’s throw is jacquard woven, making it reversible with the opposite colour on the other side. The short-staple, soft quality also ensures that the throw doesn’t feel scratchy when tucked down around the little one to keep them warm in the pram or stroller.
The rattle is made from untreated beechwood, which ages with grace and has been purposely kept free of colour. Kay Bojesen was a firm believer that children’s imaginations were strong enough to let them see the world in colour, just as he did himself with his colourful personality.
Kay Bojesen’s wooden animals are known and loved all over the world. He found inspiration for his designs on the various continents and now Kay Bojesen Denmark is adding yet another animal to its “designer zoo”, The Zebra. Kay Bojesen created the charming zebra as the first of the exotic animals in 1935. It has since been joined by The Monkey, The Elephant and The Hippo, and now another four-legged playmate is moving from the savannah into the modern home.
Like its fellow figures, the zebra was created to bring delight to the gift table on christenings, confirmations, jubilees – at all of life’s special celebrations. This new spring addition is sure to appeal to everyone looking to expand their Kay Bojesen collection by giving the other exotic animals in the menagerie – the swinging monkey, the hefty elephant and the king of the watering hole, the hippo – a new striped playmate.
Ever since Kay Bojesen’s Songbirds took their first flight, these colourful wooden birds have taken the design world by storm. New birds have joined the flock each season – most recently the grey head of the family, Ernst. And now we see the arrival of yet another winged relative. Alfred, named after Kay Bojesen’s great grandson, is the first of The Songbirds to appear au naturel – made from natural oak.
Like the other Songbirds, Kay, Ernst, Peter, Ruth, Otto, Pop and Sunshine, Alfred is a perfect design gift for a wedding, christening, birthday, anniversary or any other day of celebration. The new design is also an easy way to integrate the wood trend into a modern home – naturally!
