Patent pending Skovby #78 dining table in a unique design
The unique design of this table is inspired by the
very first eight-legged Skovby table. The tabletop is elliptical and the legs
are half-elliptical. This gives the table a harmonious and very light
The legs have a slightly sloping angle in relation to each other
creating a small gap at the top — a new design, which also has a practical
function. A special fitting on the outer legs makes it possible to adjust the
legs in case they are affected by changes in air humidity. This solution is
practical especially on solid tables that are more likely to expand and
contract when exposed to fluctuations in air humidity and temperature.
From six up to sixteen seatings
The table is supplied with two extension leaves that are stored in a
compartment underneath the tabletop. Two additional extension leaves are
available for purchase. The table will seat 16 people when fully extended with optional addtional leaves.
Also available with table top in laminate
The Skovby #78 dining table is also available with a tabletop in laminate - the Skovby High Pressure Silk Laminate. The
laminate has an incredibly hardwearing, silk matt surface and is very practical and easy to clean.
The silk laminate tabletop is white and may be combined with a base in oak white oil finish or black wengé.

See how the Skovby SM78 works
Skovby furniture is made for people - by people.
As a family owned company in Denmark, Skovby has a proud history in cabinet making spanning three generations. The growth from a small one-man workshop in 1933 to its current position as a worldwide supplier has involved many changes over the years.
Although Skovby employs the latest technological developments in cabinet making, Skovby has never lost sight of its beginnings. This can be witnessed in the large degree of hand finishing on today’s products. From the drying of the raw timber and careful selection of veneers, to the finished product, no compromise is made.
The skills employed in the use of the natural timbers and the variations therein ensure the individuality of each finished piece.
In fact, each piece of furniture has its own expression and no two are identical. This is one of the most fascinating characteristics of genuine wood.
CLASSIC, MODERN, OR AVANT GARDE
Tastes and needs may differ, but some things never change. Skovby believes that natural materials and excellent craftsmanship are never out-of-date. They have always tried to combine good traditional craftsmanship and functional innovation in a contemporary and timeless design.
Craftmanship and quality - options and flexibility - your distinct expression - Skovby is at home all over the world.
