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.   Above: The prize: Kay Bojesen's large salad serving Fork  and Spoon  (€27 each) and a Salt Spoon (€17). Four people will win the sets.   Above: Create pinboards to win. Here's an example from our own pinboard, architects  Tsao & McKown's house in Rhinebeck, New York , full of Danish modern antiques.   Above: Also pinned to our board: Bicycle Bells from Danish company, Sögreni, available in zinc, copper, and brass for $65 CAD each at Mjölk.   Above: For more inspiration for your own board, visit our  Great Danes  board on Pinterest . We're excited to see your finds!
