Create a playful mood with wooden figures
Add character and warmth to your interior with a wooden figure. On this page we have gathered all our quirky and magical wooden figures, which also make a wonderful gift to take with you throughout your life.
Imaginative wooden figures
The beautiful, popular wooden figures on this page are all made in high quality. There are several varieties of figures, each of which has its own special look and interior design expression. You can get figures that can be displayed all year round and that do not have a special theme or seasonal emphasis. And then you can find figures that are aimed at a specific holiday or occasion. For example, we have figures with flags that are perfect for birthdays and celebrations or figures with a Christmas theme, which you can bring out in December and use as decoration around the house. On this page you will find a large selection of wooden figures that you can display to create a sense of magic and wonder in your home, whatever the occasion. With our wide selection, we almost guarantee that there is a product that you will fall in love with. At Rosendahl.com, we certainly have many favourites.
Bring nature inside
If we only go back 10-15 years, it was porcelain sculptures and figures that adorned the Danish shelves and cabinets. But as the Nordic, sustainable and minimalist style of interior decor has become much more prominent, the materials in our homes have also changed. This applies to everything from dining tables and kitchen countertops to shelves and decoration. Wood has experienced a renaissance, and we have (re)discovered an interest in how this natural material can help to create a characteristic and unique atmosphere in the room.
Wooden figures have become especially popular, for young and old alike. In the children’s room, they can help to create calm or encourage imaginative play, while in the living room they exude soul and an eye for detail. A wooden figure is a wonderful, decorative way to welcome nature into your home. Wherever you place it, it will help to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere that will bring joy for many years to come and can be passed down from generation to generation.
Kay Bojesen figures
When it comes to wooden figures, Kay Bojesen should be at the top of your list. His figures of animals and other motifs can be found in a great many Danish homes, where he is known as a national style icon. Over the years, he has created a playful universe full of love and high quality made from sustainable materials. Kay Bojesen had a penchant for creating original narratives in wood, told with joie de vivre and a twinkle in the eye. His universe is best known for the beloved monkeys, soldiers and other wooden figures, which together form a happy family and represent a tribute to the inner child.
The playful monkey is probably what Kay Bojesen is best known for. Although it was not his first figure, it remains the one that adorns a great many shelves and bookcases in Denmark. The clever thing about this figure is that it can move its arms and legs, so it can hang in all kinds of fun positions from a shelf, window sill or lamp. They say that anything is possible with your imagination, and there is no doubt that Kay Bojesen had this in mind when he designed the playful figure. His universe also includes many other wooden figures, which you can find in our assortment here on this page. Have a browse and find the figure that brings you the most joy.
Decorate your home with wooden figures
Wooden figures can be used as decoration everywhere around the home. In the kitchen, the zebra can stand on the window sill, while in the bathroom, the monkey can hang from a shelf, and in the children’s room, the soldier can bring a little piece of Danish culture to the bookcase. There are many ways to arrange them, and the great thing about the figures is that you can easily move them around if you want. Whichever character you fall in love with, it's sure to exude nostalgia and charm. They are also decorative and can be used to add more personality to your home.
Our figures are handmade, which gives them their own unique expression. If you place two of the same figures next to each other, you will be able to see small differences in the wood. This makes them one-of-a-kind, and even when you know that other people also have the same motif in their home, your figure is still completely unique. In addition to having its own small characteristics, each of the different figures can help create a special atmosphere. You can get both big and small wooden figures with charm and humour, but we also have classic figures with a more aesthetic, minimalist look. With the different figures, you can create the mood you want and combine several of them. Some of the figures come in several sizes.
Wooden animal figures
The charming animals are perhaps the most well-known pieces in our universe of wooden figures. From the famous monkey to the bird, panda, hippo, zebra and rabbit, they come in many colours and sizes. Due to their universal expression, wooden animals can be placed in most rooms. You can use them as a fun addition to the living room or kitchen, or as decorations in the children’s room, where they can create a sense of wonder and cosiness. The animals are not designed as toys, but you and the children can still have fun shaping the arms and legs, which on most of the animals are adjustable. The monkey can be rotated so that it hangs from a shelf on one leg, while the rabbit can sit, stand on its back legs and reach out with its front paws as if it's about to jump up and hug you. Here, you can spend hours telling stories and talking about the animals with the little ones. Another added benefit is that the appearance of the wooden animals can be changed if you feel like some variation.
Other wooden figures
On this page you can also find other wooden figures besides just animals. Among other things, we have cars, skiers and accessories such as a midsummer wreath for summer or elf hats that can be used as Christmas decorations. Perhaps you have an empty space on the shelf that calls for an imaginative design.
A wooden figure you will be able to look at and cherish for many years. They are all made in high quality and designed to last. The figures don't take up much space, but they still create a special atmosphere in the room you display them in – regardless of which figure or sculpture you have chosen.
Sculptures that will accompany you throughout life
What's special about the wooden figure and sculpture is that it is timeless and beautiful enough to be passed on to the next generation. Just as you will often inherit the best china tableware from your parents or grandparents, a wooden figure from Kay Bojesen can also be passed on as a family heirloom. Over time, it will end up carrying its own story and memories from your family, giving the figure huge sentimental value. Perhaps it's stood on the table every year for Christmas, birthdays or other occasions, and it’s become part of your family history. Maybe your child received it as a christening gift and it has followed the child since then. Or perhaps it goes back even further, and you appreciate the fact that your grandparents held onto it. This is a lovely thought, especially if they are no longer with you.
The perfect gift
The figures and sculptures exude personality and love, which is why they are an obvious gift for people of all ages. You can give the newborn child a wooden figure as a christening gift, knowing that it will accompany them throughout their life and remind them of you. It also makes the perfect confirmation gift, as it marks the special day and has a timeless design that fits into any interior design – whatever the era. Everyone is happy to receive a wooden figure that is unique and can always bring joy to hearts and homes. If you need a gift for the graduate, you can combine a figure from this page with a graduation cap. The white cap comes with either a red or blue band, depending on what type of course the student has graduated from. It comes in several sizes and fits the head of the monkey. There is no doubt that this gift will be well-received by the proud graduate.
