Football star Ronaldo puts Slovenian furniture into his hotel

The hotel in the popular island resort is the first out of the four luxury hotels planned by the captain of the 2016 UEFA Euro champions and the brightest star of the Real Madrid football club.

The company operating the hotel on Madeira has picked Lina design's product line Moon, which is a "useful piece of furniture designed for comfortable sitting, lying or use as a low table".

Lina design director Damjan Uršič said on the occasion that he was very happy with the deal, as the Cristiano Ronaldo brand is one of the most recognisable ones in the world.

Established in 2014, the Kamnik-based company generated EUR 300,000 in revenue in its first year, increasing the annual revenue to EUR 500,000 in 2015. Lina design plans to generate EUR 1.2m in revenue this year.
