About

Janet Linly is the founder and CEO of Linly Designs, one of Chicagoland’s leading Interior Design firms. She started her company in 2002, offering elite home renovation & design services. In 2007, she opened her first retail location in suburban Chicago. That same year she was named as one of the top entrepreneurs in the U.S. by the American Chronicle. Janet has continued to grow and expand on her retail portfolio and after owning a successful National tableware company she founded Bonnâge.com, a high-end online store providing carefully curated corporate gifts in luxurious packaging. Janet’s continued success was noticed by a London-based publishing company with a long history of working with the Royal Family. In 2018 they invited Linly Designs to be included in their prestigious "Harry & Meghan – The Wedding Album," the official publication chronicling the Royal couple’s journey. Out of the 34 companies from around the world, Janet was the only entrepreneur in Illinois and Linly Designs the only design firm in the world profiled in this commemorative book. Currently, Linly Designs is working on a 2-page feature for their upcoming "Harry & Meghan – Our Royal Baby." When it comes to running a multi-million-dollar retail & design firm while building her luxury brand Bonnâge.com, Janet strives for perfection. Her extensive experience and superlative drive not only for herself but for those with whom she surrounds herself, distinguishes Janet from others in her industry. She is a visionary for not only building her businesses, but building her brand, and her tenacity as a CEO proves that with enough passion, dedication and leadership, all women can achieve anything they set their minds to. “I strongly believe that a great leader is only as good as the team that he or she has created to surround themselves with.” -JL
