Theo Eichholtz, founder of Eichholtz, international designer and wholesaler of luxury design furniture, lighting and accessories, has passed away due to illness. Theo was 55 years old.
It is hard to imagine that Theo had to abandon his fight. Theo fought with an enormous willpower. For Theo, Eichholtz was an extension of his family. Theo was a passionate entrepreneur at heart. A visionary. And a Creator of impressive collections.
Theo started his business in 1992 by sourcing antique furniture from Asia. He then expanded his collections by including vintage pieces as well as his own designs, with the distinctive, luxurious and iconic Eichholtz signature. Eichholtz now supplies its collections to specialized retailers and interior designers in over 100 countries.
We kept in close contact with Theo also during the period of his illness. Up to the last days. About his treatment and his focus on his family. About the collection as well as new designs and ideas. And about our plans for the future.
Theo looked forward to the future of Eichholtz. His passing leaves a tremendous gap. But his legacy of knowledge and expertise is equally tremendous. He personally selected and trained his succession within the company - our creative team led by Edwin van der Gun - already years ago. This filled him with pride and great confidence.
Just recently, Theo called his Eichholtz "a confident company with a rock-solid formula and enormous growth potential." We share that confidence with Theo.
His loss only makes us even more determined to make our shared vision come true.
Our love and support goes out to his wife and daughter, to his family, friends and beloved ones.
“We move forward in your name. Our love and thoughts go out to his wife and daughter, family, friends and beloved ones of Theo.”
On behalf of the worldwide Eichholtz team,
MICHIEL HERKEMIJ, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
RUBEN ALEBREGTSE, CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER
EDWIN VAN DER GUN, CHIEF CREATIVE OFFICER
