Decorate for the holidays with Kay Bojesen’s iconic Santa
Kay Bojesen’s Santa Claus is undoubtedly a must-have if you love Christmas and Danish design and want to combine the two. Santa Claus is a classic in many Danish homes, and he brings joy to children and adults alike.
Kay Bojesen’s original Santa came into the world back in 1948, and has become a firm favourite that always brings out a smile when the box of Christmas decorations is re-opened every year, and there's no doubt that he creates a Christmas atmosphere with his red suit, sack and cane. And he doesn't have to stand on his own. Add Kay Bojesen’s Mrs Claus to make a cosy little Christmas family. When Kay Bojesen designed his popular Santa in the 1940s, he was probably missing his wife, and that’s how Mrs Claus ended up joining the collection – and Santa got his wife. Now, the two have been re-united and they form a beautiful pair that really spread the Christmas spirit throughout the home.
Both Santa Claus and Mrs Claus are made of painted beech wood in beautiful red and white colours to match the rest of the Christmas decorations. Santa Claus and Mrs Claus are also ideal for passing on to the next generation, so that getting them out each year feels like a happy reunion in itself, sparking plenty of nostalgia and extra Christmas spirit. You can also add some of Kay Bojesen’s other figures for a consistent and stylish decor all year round that both young and old will love. Kay Bojesen’s imaginative family of wooden figures has a very special appeal to both children and adults.
Today he is known as the man behind a wealth of wonderful creations, which still hold an iconic status with many Danes. When the Kay Bojesen brand was founded back in 1932, it marked the start of a story about a craftsman with a great sense of humour and plenty of curiosity. Kay Bojesen created his figures based on a philosophy that good design should be accessible to everyone, a mission that he definitely achieved. His figures and animals can be found in many Danish homes, owned by people from all walks of life, and over time Kay Bojesen has become synonymous with original, high-quality Danish design that everyone can enjoy.
Some of the figures he is best known for include his Santa Claus, his imaginative monkeys, his Danish Royal Guards and other wooden animals. He created a happy family full of love, crafted in the highest quality from sustainable materials. The world of Kay Bojesen is a real tribute to the inner child – and appeals to children, adults and fans alike looking for beautiful design objects that can stay with them throughout their lives. That’s why his figures are also cherished classics to give as gifts to life’s special events, and which can be passed down from generation to generation.
So add Santa Claus and Mrs Claus to your Christmas decorations and let them keep spreading their Christmas spirit to the generations to come. Find Kay Bojesen’s Santa here.
