Enjoy a daily visit from the bluebird—or pink bird—of happiness with these sweet wooden figurines designed to alight on your desk, side table, mantel or shelf. Created by Danish design icon Kay Bojesen in the 1950s as an homage to his flower-and-bird-filled family home in Bellavista, near Copenhagen, these birds were first put into production in 2012 based on old photos from his albums. Their bright, painted colors reflect Bojesen’s own preferences—he was known to be a great fan of the color blue and often dressed in an immaculate blue suit, shirt and tie. Each Kay Bojesen Beechwood Songbird measures 6h x 3w x 6.25"d. To clean, wipe them gently with a dry cloth.

Why We Chose This
Danish silversmith and designer Kay Bojesen created whimsical wooden animals in the 1950s, including this Beechwood Songbird. In 1931, Bojesen opened a design store in Copenhagen and during the 1950s and '60s it was one of the few places in the world where one could purchase his wooden animals. Bojesen’s work has been featured in MoMA exhibitions, including 2012’s Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900–2000.
