Skovby was started almost a century ago in 1933 by Cabinetmaker Thorvald Rasmussen. With hard work, innovation, and pride, Skovby has grown into one of the leaders of wood furniture. The sons and grandsons of the founder still run the company to this day with the same values and high expectations as their father and grandfather. Skovby prides itself on always keeping production in Denmark and always using real wood that is also sustainable and provides a positive environmental footprint.
Skovby created an assortment of wooden furniture with a heavy focus on dining. They feature dining tables and chairs, buffets, and occasional pieces with as coffee tables and media stands. Their pride and joy is their full line of dining tables; and every single one of them is extendible.
The #39 Table has a modern, pedestal, V-shaped base and is perfect for sitting all around the table because you don’t have to worry about table legs. This table sits 6, and with a light push it can sit 14 people when fully extended.
Skovby #32 is one of the most unique tables on the market. It is a round table with a 47″ diameter with room for 6 that expands in less than 30 seconds with three hidden leaves in order to seat 9.
The Skovby #11 won the award for best Danish design of the year. This table is comprised of sharp straight lines and a sloping base with 4 diagonal legs. This table features two hidden butterfly leaf extensions in the middle, and you can choose to open only one or both. This table is available in solid wood or with a veneer or in a white durable laminate. When closed it seats 6 and expands to sit up to 12.
The Skovby #24 is one of the most flexible tables on the world market. This seemingly inconspicuous rectangular table comes with three hidden leaves that allow you to seat 14 people, and three additional leaves can be purchased to take this piece to its full potential of 20 people. The extension system is easy to use and only needs one person to easily open it to its full size in minutes The design is simple without being too minimalistic, and all edges are slightly rounded for safety. This table is available in many finishes either in solid wood, wood veneer, or laminate.
Skovby also has over a dozen coffee and lamp tables available in the same rich woods as their bigger brothers. The #201 is a great example of Skovby ingenuity. It is 52″x30″ and is available in 2 different heights. Under the table top there is a large shelf that is almost as big as the top that is great for storing magazines newspapers and knickknacks. There is a hidden drawer that comes out of that shelf that is perfect for your remote control or small objects. The table even includes 6 plastic coasters stored in this shelf! On another side of this table there is a pull-out plate with a head resistant surface that is perfect for teapots. The matching side table is #203.
Another amazing design idea is Skovby #236 it is a large oval coffee table (53″x30″) with a pedestal base that is available in many different woods and finishes. However this is no ordinary table! With a push of a switch this table moves up via an electric motor. Suddenly the table rises up 9″ from 19″ to 28″ or anywhere in between!
The Skovby #224 set features three nesting side tables with a clean simple design. These cute small tables are perfect if you keep them together or place all three in different rooms and they will serve you for years to come.
