Vintage Wood

Plywood Elephant by Charles and Ray Eames, 1945

Warm and natural, wood is such an attractive material to me. 
I still cherish a Swedish dala horse from my childhood...
too bad that my lovely Enzo Mari animal puzzle is gone!

These modern vintage wooden creations are a
wonderful mix of toy, sculpture and design object...
