Skovby was among the first to come up with functional extension systems for tables. Some of their tables such as the #24 Table can be extended from six to twenty seatings. It is extended by pulling the two ends of the table apart, unfolding the “leaves” from underneath, and fixing them into place by pushing the ends together again. Another popular extendable table is the #32 round table. This circular table has three folding leaves stored in the base of the table. By turning the tabletop, the table splits into three and provides room to release and unfold the leaves when light pressure is applied.
These tables are designed and patented b y M. Arch. Per Hånsbæk who has been the main partner in the creation of Skovby products for over twenty years. Hånsbæk not only designs tables but also chairs, cabinets, and living room furniture as well. One of his latest designs is called MODO, a modular system designed for any modern or contemporary styled dining room or living room.
This amazing Danish company combines their excellent craftsmanship, unique style, and affordable prices to make the innovative designs that have turned their company into a growing and successful industry.
