Hang Ten: 21 Homes That Prove Surf Is Chic
Living just blocks from the beach, we'll admit we have a soft spot for surf life . . . but you don't have to be a tube-riding pro to appreciate the beauty of the surfboard. After spotting surfboards in stylish homes across the globe, we've decided it's our favorite new home accessory.With designers and artists like Kelly Wearstler, Sibella Court, and Mel Kadel designing decks, bringing a board home can expand your art collection, too. Of course, you'll earn much more cred if your board is speckled with Sex Wax. Luckily, even the simplest surfboard can make a sculptural statement in your home -- and there are plenty of colorful and graphic options to consider, too. Shop a few of our favorites below.
