2016 JAN TE LINTELO

Oh, the joys of city life… A cappuccino on every corner, art, culture, the hustle
and bustle… There is a lot to be said for urban living, which was the inspiration
for the ‘Metropolitan’ series. Its sleek legs will tickle your creativity: they can
be positioned at varying angles and in several positions. And of course,
‘Metropolitan’ comes in a range of sizes and depths to suit your needs.
Because ‘Metropolitan’ is all about individuality.
