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.

The continuous and direct reason for Skovby’s success is the ability to develop designs, which unite strong aesthetic expression with innovative function

ABout the brand

Skovby was founded in Denmark in 1933 by cabinetmaker Thorvald Rasmussen. With a combination of huge pride in his work, environmental vision and a passion and flair for design, he created a furniture brand which is now served by the third generation of the family, still building furniture utilising Thorvalds’ values.

Over the years, this has developed into a true ‘international’ brand. Sustainability and environmental responsibility remain at the very core of the business.
