Skovby Dining Room Furniture - Uncover an Original Danish Design

Skovby furniture, made in Denmark, was found in 1933 by cabinetmaker Thorvald Rasmussen.

His story originally began as a solo entrepreneur designing one-off cabinet pieces. Renowned for design and functionality, this Danish family business integrated a sustainable business model into its works, incorporating only natural materials.

Skovby's son Villy Rasmussen and grandsons Preben and Jørgen Rasmussen continue with his legacy through respect for nature, the environment, and people. Subsequently, Skovby furniture is uniquely made from wood obtained from sustainable forests to help support ecosystem diversity.

Thorvald's strenuous effort and commitment to environmentally-friendly practices and wood finishes helped create a foundation for this versatile and distinctive renowned Danish design.

The prominent pieces are the Skovby's dining chairs. The unique and organic structures are multi-functionality, comfortable, and versatile. In addition, their distinctive extension abilities can be easily turned into a candlelight dinner or expanded for a large family gathering. In other words, they stand as the focal point of any family home.

Explore a Danish design by Skovby and add everlasting craftsmanship and timeless, organic elements to your family dining interior.

About Skovby

Skovby furniture stands to create a centerpiece statement, provoking a visual contrast to your dining room or home. The Modern Danish story began in 1924, where functional furniture design and simplicity were vital during the modern movement; its non-functional clutter series incorporated these elements into his own craftmanship. Their fame began with a humble cabinetmaker, Thorvald Rasmussen, born in northern Denmark. Flying solo, Thorvald was commissioned to create pieces from his small workshop. His orders quickly grew to more advanced dining room furniture and coffee tables creations. Dreaming of starting his own small-scale production, Skovby furniture was born in 1933. Over the last 80 years, the brand dining tables have become a much-needed signature element of modern-day society, an inarguable role model for extendable tables. Their line brings the ultimate flexibility to minimalistic dining areas and modern compact living. Although Thorvald Rasmussen's vision was to make small batch furniture, in the 1940s, he made a series of beautiful Hans J. Wegner desks for Aarhus Municipality. His son, on the other hand, Villy Rasmussen was more geared towards manufacturing on a larger scale; Villy became the forefront of the development that made Skovby Møbelfabrik one of the country's leading Danish family-run businesses. In less than 20 years, its furniture was developed in product lines. The Danish family's shared passion spans three generations of cabinetmakers, grandsons Preben and Jørgen Rasmussen joined the company in the mid-1990s turning the firm into an internationally recognised, innovative business with a positive environmental impact. The third-generation succession continues its focus on uncompromising craftsmanship, natural materials, and a sustainable business model that commits to employees and the environment. By incorporating wood into functional furniture design, their pieces are endurable and lasting. The wood is only obtained from preserved forests to support ecosystem diversity. Their commitment and respect for nature, the environment, and people make their design with a caring approach even more alluring. Their focus on manufacturing with positive effects on the environment makes it easy for you to prioritise your home's sustainability when styling with this household name.
