The history of Sibast Furniture begins in 1908, with a little cabinet-maker in the countryside on the island of Funen in Denmark. Peder Olsen Sibast opened a small 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 the skills of high quality craftsmanship and honed his sense of fine simplicity and sustainability within his furniture designs. Helge created the foundation for the international furniture corporation Sibast Furniture. Danish design classics were manufactured by Sibast Furniture, and in the 1950s a years-long 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 1950s and 1960s. 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 owners of Sibast Furniture today.
