Coffee tables / side tables
Cup of tea
by Henk Vos
Do you enjoy stretching out on your own sofa, reading a book—or resting your eyes—without wanting to roll over and reach out towards your coffee table? Nowhere else to put your cup of tea, other than precariously balancing it on your knee? Versatile, light-weight ‘Cup of tea’ is the answer. You can move this little side table anywhere you want, including sliding it over the seat next to you. And don’t worry: it also accomodates a glass of wine.

Henk Vos’ design motto? ‘Better empty than ugly.’
His furniture designs were as outspoken, honest and straightforward as you would expect from a man whose roots were well-established in the heavy clay of Groningen, the Netherlands’ most northern province.
When Henk’s father, Wiebe Vos, suddenly died in 1963, 23-year old Henk—a graduate of the Rotterdam Academy of Art—took over the furniture factory that had been in the family for generations. With his young and adventurous spirit, he turned it into a leading interior design emporium: Vos Interieur.
The Vos family ties remain strong: in 1996, Henk’s son Bart Vos designed the company’s ground-breaking new concept store, ‘Maupertuus’. And Henk’s other son, Roderick, also followed in Dad’s designer footsteps. Some of Henk’s designs for Linteloo date back longer than we care to remember, but their timeless quality has turned them into icons of good design.
Henk passed away in 2020, but his legacy lives on.
