News Highline


At Salone del Mobile 2017, Linteloo presented the new modular Highline sofa system by Sebastian Herkner. A sofa that combines maximum comfort with a multitude of personalisation options.

Available in two depths, various sofa and armchair designs can be arranged into large lounging areas, including open modules with only one armrest that allow for personalised sofa designs. Creating a strong visual effect, removable large back and side cushions are loosely placed on the frame, softly bending over both sides, creating a contrast with the frame’s clear, straight lines. Fitted with comfortable upholstered seats and, optionally, with additional cushions, Highline sets new standards in comfortable seating. The new sofa system is guaranteed to provide the typical Linteloo feel-good factor. The full potential can be seen and experienced at the Linteloo showroom in Zeist.

One sofa system – countless design options: the Highline range of products includes an armchair, a 2-seater, a 2.5-seater, a 3-seater and a daybed. The modules are designed to be positioned anywhere in the room. When the 2-seater with only one armrest is combined with the daybed you have a corner sofa; combine it with another 2-seater and you get a spacious 4-seater. The choice of materials and colours also allows for limitless personalisation options: select from a large range of textile or leather covers in various shades to create your very own favourite piece of furniture. Linteloo offers all modules in two different depths: the 85 cm deep version supports a relaxed upright position, while the 100 cm deep design is perfect for casual lounging.
