Warm Nordic's Surfboard is a wooden coffee table designed by Arne Hovmand-Olsen in 1959. The table boasts a beautifully unpretentious form typical of Nordic design, but it is also infused with a bit of playfulness – the table's name nods to its top, which resembles a surfboard. The lightweight coffee table is made of walnut and equipped with a small rattan shelf where remote controls and magazines can be hidden from view.

Danish furniture designer Arne Hovmand-Olsen (1919-1989) started his career in 1938 as a cabinetmaker for P.Olsen Sibast. After studying furniture design in a technical school, Hovmand-Olsen founded his own workshop with great success – his designs gained success not only in Denmark but also internationally, especially in the United States.
Arne Hovmand-Olsen was born in 1919 in Denmark in a farm family. He quickly developed an interest for drawing and creation.

”I’ve bought at Finnish Design Shop many times over the years and I have always been extremely satisfied. Love their range of products (from classics to new awe-inspiring designs). Moreover they have very nice and helpful support team so I would always recommend!”

”I ordered a HAY side table that was on back order everywhere else. It was a few hundred crowns more at Finnish Design Shop, but shipped the next day and was delivered to my door two days later, which I think was worth the extra cost. It came well-packaged, protected and the item is in perfect condition. I’m happy and would shop here again.”
”Finally a store with quality designed products available for shipment within days not weeks. Customer support is superb, great product portfolio, fast shipment.”

”I’m crazy for the Finnish Design Shop, and all that I’ve bought from them. And when questions arose (regarding a bookshelf that needed clever assembly), their representatives in Finland were so helpful and thoughtful.”
”Fast delivery. Ordered a hammock for my mothers birthday to be delivered at her adress. It’s in a somewhat rural area, but it was delivered at her door regardless. Great service.”

”We purchased a Hay Snowden Kettle from the Finnish Design Shop - unfortunately there was a fault with the Kettle but this was professionally and quickly dealt with by the Olli on the After Sales team, so we can recommend them for their great customer service and after-sales experience.”
