A classic, extraordinarily beautiful, yet unpretentious wooden coffee table, created in the 50s by the acclaimed Danish furniture designer Arne Hovmand-Olsen. The design of the tabletop was inspired by the shape of a surfboard, lending the table an innate lightness that makes it perfect for any modern interior. The coffee table is also available with an elegant solid wood and French rattan shelf, adding an extra dimension to this iconic design, which was referred to from its earliest days as the ‘Surfboard.’

Respect for the Past and the FutureWith timeless Nordic design as our foundation, Warm Nordic is based on the sustainable idea that great design can be passed down through generations. From the design classics of the 50s and 60s to new long-lasting designs of the highest quality. Created with equal amounts of respect for the past and the future.
Warm Nordic combines design visions and Nordic spirit with responsible production and constant awareness of the environment. We have always worked to minimize our environmental footprint and continuously focus on creating improvements at all stages – from raw materials and packaging to energy consumption, recycling and transport.
We endeavor to develop in an even more responsible and sustainable direction constantly. Based on Warm Nordic's Code of Conduct, we commit ourselves and our partners through supplier requirements, expectations of responsibility, and ambitions for a green tomorrow.
Careful Selection of Raw MaterialsWarm Nordic selects raw materials, suppliers, and partners with great care. Our ambition is to make even more sustainable and environmental choices in the production of raw materials without compromising on quality, aesthetics, and functionality.
Warm Nordic focuses on ensuring that our wood comes from sustainably managed forests and other responsible sources, which is why a growing number of our furniture is FSC® certified (FSC® N0002990). We are also members of FSC Denmark, which works to promote FSC in Denmark and the Nordic countries.
FSC (Forest Stewardship Council®) is a global non-profit organization that works to promote environmental, social, and economic sustainable use of the world's forests. When choosing FSC-certified products, you help care for the world's forests. The FSC label also guarantees that animals and plants are protected and that the people who work in the forest are trained, use proper safety equipment and get a fair salary.
We only use European wood, except for teak, which we get from certified plantations dedicated to clear traceability and where replanting ensures sustainable production. According to the EU's Timber Regulation, all wood has been legally purchased and harvested.
All products containing MDF, chipboard, and plywood are made according to the new TSCA rules that ensure low formaldehyde emissions.
All textiles for Warm Nordic's upholstered furniture come from leading suppliers, and most carry the EU Ecolabel, which guarantees an environment-friendly production. We only allow fabrics produced per the REACH Regulation, which protects the environment and human health from the risks of chemical substances.
Natural Environmental ConsiderationsConcern for the environment, transition to sustainable energy, and reduction of climate footprint are all natural parts of Warm Nordic's core values.
Warm Nordic is a subsidiary of Danish Management Group, which, among other things, operates a sustainable energy consultancy (Danish Energy Management) and owns wind turbines and biogas plants. Warm Nordic is self-sufficient in utilizing green energy and reduces energy consumption for the consumer's benefit.
Warm Nordic aims to increase its share of reusable materials. This includes the entire product line.
Warm Nordic mainly collaborates with European suppliers because it is our ambition that products should be made close to home to reduce our environmental impact and CO2 emissions from transport. We will always strive to keep production local whenever the production facilities and economy allow us to realize our mission of providing reasonably priced, sustainable quality design.
We have chosen materials that age beautifully, but please be aware that all materials change their nature over time when exposed to light, dust, and use.

Arne Hovmand-Olsen had the world in mind 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 design practice, which 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 considerable interest abroad. In consultation with Arne Hovmand-Olsen’s family, Warm Nordic is upholding the legacy of this great furniture designer. It will regularly launch more House of Arne Hovmand-Olsen classics.Read More
