A DANISH FAMILY BUSINESS SINCE 1933
Skovby was founded in 1933 by cabinetmaker Thorvald Rasmussen. With vision, strenuous effort and professional pride he created a foundation for sustainable and functional furniture design, which his son Villy Rasmussen and grandsons Preben and Jørgen Rasmussen have carried on ever since.
Early special assignments for the small one-man workshop quickly advanced to complete dining room suites and in less than 20 years Skovby furniture was produced in product lines. This development led to the build-up of an international dealership network. A healthy organic growth with a continuing focus on craftsmanship, natural materials and a sustainable business model that commits to employees and environment.
A COMMON PASSION
The driving force, and a shared passion spanning the three generations of cabinetmakers, is function. Skovby was among the frontrunners within functional extension systems for tables, and today the furniture company is world renowned for a special talent to combine design and functionality. The continuous and direct reason for Skovby’s success is the ability to develop designs, which unite strong aesthetic expression with innovative function.
