Pieces of Nordic Happiness

Sibast | Shelves

Danish furniture manufacturer Sibast was established in 1908, when Peder Olsen Sibast opened his small carpenter’s workshop in the Danish countryside. His son Helge Sibast was born the same year. Helge grew up with the workshop, and in the 1940s he and his siblings Ole and Emma took over the company. Besides a carpenter, Helge also proved to be a skillful designer, and his designs, such as the Sibast chairs No 7 and 8, made Sibast Furniture famous also outside of Denmark. In the 1950s Sibast collaborated successfully with the Danish furniture designer Arne Vodder, and in the 1960s Sibast chairs made their way even to the White House.

In 1984 Sibast Furniture was sold by the Sibast family, but Helge Sibast’s daughters retained the copyrights for his designs. In 2012, Ditlev and Anna Sibast, Helge Sibast’s grandson and his wife, relaunched Sibast Furniture. The new collections include Helge Sibast’s original works and fresh designs that pay respect to the company’s core values: high-quality craftsmanship and well-thought design.

This brand has collaborated with: Helge Sibast, Anna & Ditlev Sibast, Piet Hein, Kasper Eistrup, Arne Vodder, Naja Utzon Popov

Scandinavian designer shelves add sophisticated storage space to your home

Designer shelves not only help you to tame the chaos in your home but also function as distinctive design items that will be cherished for years to come. We at Finnish Design Shop have collected all of our favourite shelf designs on this page. Whether you're looking for a small, decorative shelf on your wall, a full-size bookshelf or modular shelving systems, we've got you covered!

When choosing a new designer shelf for your home, start by considering what kind of items you want to store and how much space you have for your new shelf. Be careful not to cram the shelf too full! Also, most shelves will definitely look better if you can leave a bit of empty space around them. If you're hoping to add just a bit of extra storage space on the wall or showcase some of your favourite objects in a neat way, opt for wall shelves with an open design. If there's need to store a bigger amount of your favourite books, tableware or storage boxes, browse through our selection of bookcases – you'll be sure to find high-quality designer shelves for both small and larger spaces. And in case you're looking for an adaptable shelf that can be expanded or contracted whenever needed, our modular shelving units by String Furniture, Montana Furniture and other favourite brands are probably just the right option for you!

Our selection of Scandinavian designer shelves provides you with a range of colours, materials and size options. Wooden shelves are a traditional and ever-popular part of Nordic interiors – from our selection, you can find both classic and contemporary wooden shelves by Scandinavian brands including ArtekLundiaMenu, Muuto and Hay. Besides wood, other common materials include metal, MDF, plastic as well as luxurious marble and brass. And in terms of colours, you can choose to go with classic and neutral tones or spruce up the decor with more intense colours. Whichever is your choice, at Finnish Design Shop you can be sure to find a designer shelf that truly stands the test of time. We offer fast, worldwide delivery to over 180 countries, and all our stock items are ready to be shipped right away.
