Trend Spotting: Surfbords as Home Decor

Beyonce and Jay Z were recently in San Francisco on their On The Run tour, but you knew that because you went. We, apparently, were the only ones in the entire city who DIDN’T go and oh, we felt the sting. While everyone was jammin’ to “Drunk in Love” we were stuck in the left over concert traffic only to be proceeded by an equally monotonous night. And to top off a serious case of Tuesday night FOMO, if the rumors are true, the power couple is headed for the dreaded “D” word and we just. can’t. handle. it.

So in honor of Queen Bey and Jay, we rounded up our favorite surfboard inspirations, or should we say surfbort inspirations? We’ve been seeing these dudes everywhere, from decor to editorials and we can only believe that it was partly Beyonce’s doing. After all, she runs the world, right? On her surfbort.

We’re in love with the idea of surfboards as decor, especially when they’re not your typical “surf’s up, bro” board. A gorgeous blond wood with a vintage-inspired shape is so cool leaning against a blank wall and the Gray Malin photography infused board is literally a work of art. Obsessed.

Speaking of art, fashion and interior designers have definitely received the surf delivered memo. We can’t decide if we’d rather break waves on Kelly Wearstler’s beautifully crafted wooden boards or Alexander Wang’s marble beauties. Probably Kelly’s, right? Marble sinks- in the literal sense of the word only!

And just in case you’re planning to ride this trend as long as we are, we present a surfbort moodbort. <– We had to!

Have you caught the surfboard wave too? Or are you ready for this trend to crash and break? Us? Oh, we’re prepared to ride this baby till the final days of summer are gone! –Bianca

    Speak for yourself sister, I was there, saw it go down, and lived to tell the story.
