Surfboard

A classic wooden coffee table with an extraordinarily beautiful design, created in the 1950s by the acclaimed Danish furniture designer, Arne Hovmand-Olsen. The design of the tabletop drew its inspiration from the shape of a surfboard, lending the coffee table an innate lightness and extraordinary beauty that will effortlessly glide into any modern interior. The length of the tabletop is a real plus when many people are seated on a sofa, while the understated, elegant bend at the ends really comes into its own when you view Surfboard in profile. The coffee table comes in teak and walnut as a clear homage to the 1950s or in oak with a more modern feel.

Choose from several types of wood and exquisite finishes.

This iconic coffee table was originally designed in 1959 by the Danish furniture designer, Arne Hovmand-Olsen, who was well known for his innovative, Scandinavian style furniture design. From the very start, the coffee table was known as ‘Surfboard, a word that sums up the design perfectly. The Surfboard coffee table makes its mark with its high quality and a design that testifies to the designer’s love of wood. Arne Hovmand-Olsen had a talent for both craftsmanship and aesthetics, and encapsulated both in his elegant designs. The Surfboard coffee table has been specially selected for the Warm Nordic range as a tribute to iconic Nordic design that invests modern décor with invaluable diversity and depth.

Designer

Arne Hovmand-Olsen had the world in mind, both before and after the 1950s, when he became one of Denmark’s renowned furniture designers. The son of a farmer and an aesthete by nature, he started as an apprentice cabinetmaker, before studying furniture design and pursuing his passion for visual composition and furniture design. In 1944, Arne Hovmand-Olsen opened his own design practice, where he united the details of classic craftsmanship with innovative, modern design. He was a pioneer, not only in the field of architecture, but also in the field of exporting designer furniture to accommodate the large interest abroad. In consultation with Arne Hovmand-Olsen’s family, Warm Nordic is upholding the legacy of this great furniture designer and will regularly launch more House of Arne Hovmand-Olsen classics.
