If ever there was a year that we could all us some holiday cheer, it’s 2020.
Luckily, each year, Linly Designs in Clarendon Hills has provided an abundance of cheer no matter the circumstances, thanks to a bountiful selection of furniture and accessories perfect for your home sweet holiday home.
And 2020 will be no exception.
“Our clients seem to be slowing down a bit more this year and making sure to take the time to enjoy each season, unlike years prior when it felt everyone was in a rush,” explains Janet Linly, founder of Linly Designs. “We have had an increase in requests for crystals and color. Clients are seeking not only functionality in their home, but also pieces that bring them joy and happiness.”
That joy and happiness that Linly speaks of can often be found in the presence of loved ones, whether near or far.
“We suggest incorporating framed family photos into your décor, order a pillow with your pet’s photo on the front, or add sentimental handmade ornaments and pieces from children and loved ones,” explains Linly. “We create stunning décor and seasonal items but we always encourage our clients to finish their space with personal, meaningful touches.”
And while the world may be in a tailspin outside, the inside of Linly Designs during the holiday season is always quite inviting. From feathered centerpieces and custom figurines to handcrafted silk floral arrangements, Linly Designs offers more than enough inspiration to create the holiday home you have always dreamed of.
“Every year as we are designing our showroom for the holidays, we make sure that each of our Christmas trees is not only color-coordinated with our furniture vignettes, but also has its own theme,” explains Linly. “This year one of our trees will be inspired by MacKenzie- Childs. I love the bold look and the dramatic yet timeless feel of that black, white, and red combination.”
And while Linly Designs’ series of Holiday Open Houses might feel a little different this year due to the ongoing COVID- 19 pandemic, it will still serve up just as much magic as before.
“This year, our Christmas Open House will cover four days versus the usual three, and an RSVP will be preferred,” remarks Linly of the 13-year tradition. “Our showroom will be nothing short of magnificent as it has been in years past.”
And once the holidays are through, Linly Designs will continue to be the one-stop-shop for all of those projects that homeowners plan to tackle in the new year.
“The goal with each project that we complete is that the end result will become a sanctuary for our clients,” Linly concludes. “Because of this, our remodeling and renovation services have been booming this year as clients are spending more time at home and looking to create a haven for themselves. And those clients that are moving into new homes are contracting us to help with renovation and furnishing selections as well.”
Linly Designs is located at 445 Ogden Avenue in Clarendon Hills. For more information, visit linlydesigns.com.
