In 1937, the brothers Hans and Leo Lübke founded Gebrüder Lübke GmbH & Co. KG in Wiedenbrück – a “special factory for polished bedrooms”. “Inter” alludes to “interior” and “internationality”, while Lübke is, of course, a reference to the name of the family that owned the company at the time. Hans Lübke’s son Horst, who was managing partner from 1972, retired in 1995; his son Helmut Lübke joined the company and developed the product range in the direction of luxury modular furniture systems. In 2006 his son Leo Lübke took over, in addition to heading upholstered furniture manufacturer Cor. Leo Lübke brought the two brands closer together and joint Cor+Interlübke furniture stores were opened.
