The history of Sibast Furniture begins in 1908 in a little cabinetmaker in the countryside on the island of Funen in Denmark. Peder Olsen Sibast opened a little business making handcrafted wooden furniture.   The years went by and his son, Helge Sibast grew up and decided to follow in his father’s footsteps. He served his apprenticeship with him and developed skills of high quality craftsmanship and his sense of fine simplicity and sustainability within his furniture designs. He created the foundation for the international furniture corporation SIBAST FURNITURE. Danish design classics were manufactured by Sibast Furniture and from the 1950’s a yearlong collaboration between the well known Danish furniture architect Arne Vodder and Helge Sibast began. This collaboration resulted in an adventure of exporting Danish furniture Designs around the world in the 1950’s and 1960’s. In 1984 SIBAST FURNITURE was sold by the Sibast family, just a year before Helge Sibast passed away. Fortunately the copyright to the furniture stayed in the Sibast family, which is why the iconic designs now are re-launched by the grandson and his wife; Ditlev and Anna Sibast, the founders of Sibast Furnituretoday.   Sibast Furniture was known around the world in the 1950’s and 60’s for beautiful design, high quality wooden furniture and sublime craftsmanship. This is also the mantra for the fourth generation of the Sibast family when bringing Helge Sibast designs back to life. In 2012 SIBAST FURNITURE was re-founded after 28 years of not being in the Sibast family. Anna and Ditlev Sibast created the new design company Sibast Furniture with the purpose of bringing their design legacy forward. As the grandson says: “beautiful design heritage commits us…” They wanted to bring their heritage back to life. They saw the beauty in Sibast No 8 and wanted to bring this in to the modern Danish homes today. The company has since then expanded and the design legacy of the Sibast family has come even more to life. “With humility and outmost respect for our heritage we have with our passion for design continued to develop new ideas for launching Sibast items bringing them into the twenty-first century however always staying true to the design, quality and craftsmanship by which our grandfather’s designs were made in” says Ditlev Sibast SINCE 1908 …FROM A LITTLE CABINETMAKER IN THE COUNTRYSIDE OF DENMARK…
