ABOUT us

Lynen Interiors created its name based on the pure and timeless textile, linen. The relaxed and durable elements of linen make it a natural addition to any home interior. It is ideal for nearly every home-furnishing application - upholstery, slipcovers, pillows, window treatments, table tops and bedding as it becomes softer with each wash. It is also used in accents, lighting, art, wall coverings, rugs and even tile. 

Experience the difference as you enter our design studio or one of our client's homes, You'll notice the earth-friendly, clean, fresh and relaxed vibe. The beauty lies in layering organic textures and tones like those found in nature. Our high standards fuel us to constantly hand-select natural, sustainable, recycled, repurposed, reclaimed, vintage, antique, small-batch and locally sourced products. We are also proud members of the SFC (Sustainable Furnishings Council).
