We apologise for any confusion this might cause to our customers. However, the reason shipping is set as free, is due to the limitations of Etsy’s website. We have been advised by Etsy to arrange shipping on their site in this way due the following reasons.

As we specialise in bespoke, one-off pieces, at Modern Antics, not one of our item’s shares the same dimensions as another. This makes it impossible for us to standardise our shipping rates, but is also another reason why every of our items is so special.
Additionally, as a small business, the length of time it would take us to calculate the cost of shipping every item, to every country, let alone every city in the world, would mean we wouldn’t have any time to provide our customers with the items we work so hard to make available to you.
Large items, such as tables or sideboards, that cannot be sent using a standard shipping service, require a bespoke crate, which is essential to keep them safe and to be fully insured by our freight couriers. For more information on these crates, please get in touch.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us, with any questions or queries you might have. We love to chat to any potential customers or anyone looking for some advice, on interior design, furniture or anything in between.

Owing largely to the creative direction of designer Helge Sibast during the postwar years, Danish manufacturer Sibast is internationally revered today for a wide range of sleek vintage Scandinavian modern furniture that includes dining chairs, desks, armchairs and other pieces. The company’s origins can be traced back to wooden furnishings created in a modest cabinetmaker’s workshop.  

Sibast was established by cabinetmaker Peder Olsen Sibast in 1908 as a small carpentry shop in rural Denmark. Peder's son Helge was born that year and began apprenticing alongside his father at a young age. In the 1940s, when the elder Sibast passed away, Helge assumed a management role at the company alongside his siblings, Ole and Emma.

Helge was tasked with leading design, production and product development at a time when what we now call mid-century modernist furniture design was gaining popularity with American consumers and elsewhere, and his own designs reflected a focus on craftsmanship and an emphasis on clean lines as well as the use of organic materials in their construction. Sibast also enlisted the talents of other renowned Danish modernists including Piet Hein, Arne Vodder and Grete Jalk. Vodder designed many of the brand’s armchairs, dining tables and dining chairs that were exported to the United States throughout the ‘50s and ‘60s.

In 1953, the company introduced two of Helge Sibast's most celebrated creations — the Sibast No. 7 and No. 8 chairs. The popular Sibast No. 7 dining chair is noted for its floating backrest and expressive form. With its sturdy Y-frame, the unassuming Sibast No. 8 was a worldwide hit when it debuted, and its simple and functional mid-century modern appeal made it an instant classic. In the 1960s, Sibast chairs were even purchased for interiors at the White House.

The Sibast family sold the company in 1984 but retained the copyrights to Helge's designs. In 2012, Helge's grandson Ditlev and his wife Anna relaunched the Sibast furniture company. The brand’s offerings include many of Helge's original creations alongside new designs that adhere to the company's long-held tradition of creating sculptural, innovative and functional furniture.
