Making Waves:
Surfboards As Decor

We're big fans of the sports-equipment-as-decoration trend, and surfboards just might top our list of favorite multi-purpose props. The best part is, this genre caters to every brand of connoisseur: from the clotheshorse, who demands the best (and the best means Chanel), to the graphic-minded aesthete, who won't settle for anything less than a local craftsmen à la Travis Reynolds, to the art collector--see: Richard Prince for Tommy Hilfiger. Try your board leaning against a wall for easy access (if you ride the thing) and a casual, no-fuss focal point; mounted for a one-stop-shop solution to that glaring blank surface; or as a coffee table--because, why not?
