In honor of our Great Danes issue this week, we’re spotlighting standout Danish designs, and a great example is the work of the late designer Kay Bojesen (responsible for the iconic teak hanging monkey, among other pieces). Margot’s post, Revived: The National Flatware of Denmark, put his 1930s streamlined cutlery on our radar and we’ve been fixated on it ever since (clean lines, matte finishes, what’s not to love?). We’ve teamed up with Kay Bojesen, a new Copenhagen company launched by Bojesen’s granddaughter, to give away four prizes, each consisting of a pair of Kay Bojesen salad servers and a salt spoon made to the designer’s original specs (retail value for each set is $133). The Kay Bojesen pieces are made of stainless steel and winners can elect a matte or polished finish. 

Here’s how to win:

  • Follow Remodelista and Kay Bojesen on Pinterest.
  • Create a pinboard titled “The Great Danes” featuring images of your favorite Danish-inspired living spaces. 
  • Pin five of your favorite pieces from the Kay Bojesen line and five images from, with a total of at least 20 pins on your pinboard.
  • Post a direct link to your pinboard in the comments section below by 6 pm PST, Sunday, February 23; we’ll announce the four winners on Tuesday, February 25 at 8 am PST.
