Are you searching for awesome gifts ideas? Then look no further than these charming wooden sculptures from Chicago-based design studio Uusi. If you’ve been following this blog you may have noticed that I have a slight obsession with wooden figurines, so I couldn’t resist posting these beauties. There are three animal sculptures box sets on Uusi online shop: the Moderne Wood box set, Farm and Safari (which is sold out but can be pre-ordered) with a sharp, minimalist style reminiscent of early 20th Century Modernism.
The self-assembly sculptures are crafted from domestic white oak and black walnut veneer and finished with hand applied natural, mineral oil. Each set has its own beautiful birch veneer and screen-printed box. Alas, a perfect gift for a figurine collector like myself!

Their online store offer products created by designers at Uusi Studio or treasures created in collaboration with artists that inspire them.
