or Call to Order

The Linteloo Miami sofa, designed by Jan te Lintelo, is inspired by the poet John Donne and his infa­mous quote, No man is an island.” These words convey the very essence that living together is an embod­i­ment of shared expe­ri­ences and joys. 

The sofa’s invit­ing island’ becomes a hub of activ­ity, a space where you embrace your chil­dren, immerse your­self in the worlds of liter­ary heroes, virtu­ally attend concerts through your earphones, and traverse the globe via Zoom meetings.


Jan te Lintelo

Jan te Lintelo was born in 1954 into a family of furniture retailers in Haaksbergen in the eastern part of The Netherlands. Growing up, Jan was surrounded by the beautiful furniture from his parent's shop. This meant he understood artisans' and architects' skills and extraordinary craftsmanship from an early age.

Jan studied furniture manufacturing at the HMC in Rotterdam, specializing in craftsmanship, creativity, and trade entrepreneurship, and worked in sales for Dutch cabinetmaker Pastoe and the famous upholstery factory Gelderland.

In 1994, he started his own company and created his furniture collection. Using his experience in manufacturing combined with the feedback and wishes from his clients, he designed the first collection, quickly becoming one of the most successful modern furniture collections.
