Stylish Surfboard Table Brings the Beach Indoors

Created by British designer Christopher Duffy, the Surf-ace Table was built using traditional surfboard construction techniques and materials. Each piece of the table and bench set is made from balsa wood and uses a specific veneer from various sources (including Forestry Stewardship Council managed forests) to recreate the traditional waxed Hawaiian boards. It's the perfect table set for anyone looking to bring the beach indoors.

Making sure to highlight the beautiful and subtle curves in the design, Duffy adds a pleasant tactile feel to each component of the piece, allowing the user to trace the soft curves with their hands. A limited batch of only 20 sets have been made, though you'll have to pay a hefty price for the unique furniture–roughly $19,100 for the table and about $6,800 per bench!

You can also check out some of Duffy's other fun featured works on the Met, including an axe-legged table, swinging office furniture, and a floating balloon coffee table.
