Linteloo: Feel-Good Designs for Easy Modern Living.
Linteloo was established in The Netherlands in 1993 by Jan te Lintelo.
Born into a family of furniture retailers, Jan's parents started a business, te Lintelo Wonen, which became one of the most successful stores in the region with leading international furniture collections. In his spare time Jan helped his parents in the shop, appreciating the craftsmanship of furniture making at a young age. He attended college in Rotterdam and soon started his career with cabinetmaker Pastoe in Utrecht. After several years with Pastoe and later Gelderland he decided to start his own company, Linteloo.
Linteloo was a departure from the popular Dutch Design influences of the nineties, starting a new concept with a feel-good factor that is now a famous element of Linteloo designs. Today Linteloo is a leading furniture brand with showrooms in Zeist (The Netherlands), Cologne (Germany) and Milan (Italy). Continuing to expand their reach, Linteloo now delivers comfortable designs for easy living all across the globe.
Samuel's career in furniture began through his love of woodworking as a schoolboy. His formal training culminated in a Masters in Furniture Design from Buckinghamshire Chiltern University in the UK. After graduation, he was given a thorough grounding in the industry through several years in hotel interior design. In 1995 he set up his own company, Channels, with a studio-showroom in London's Chelsea neighborhood, and a furniture workshop in the English Midlands.
Samuel's designs have received several awards. His 2007 series of book towers won the Best Furniture Category of the Classic Design Awards given by the Victoria and Albert Museum. His 2008 collection, which includes the Motley drums, received three Design Guild Marks from the historic Company of Furniture Makers.View other products by Samuel Chan
