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 oak and equipped with a small rattan shelf where remote controls and magazines can be hidden from view.
