Kay Bojesen Small Monkey By Rosendahl - Smoked Oak

Kay Bojesen's original and classic teak Monkey was born in 1951. He was actually intended as a hook for children’s coats, but its destiny was to become a piece of original, world-famous Danish art.

Even though the new smoked oak Bojesen monkey shares the same design DNA as the original, he is far from identical. The dark Monkey makes itself at home with its exotic, deep colours harking back to the Monkey’s origins deep in the jungles of design. 

One thing is for sure, he will be as loved and cherished as his brother and will continue to brighten up any room or a child’s bedroom.
