Happy International Women’s Day!
Today, we celebrate the achievements of all women throughout history who inspire us to be great leaders in our industry. Our talented team is comprised of many strong, smart, independent women and in honor of not only our team at Linly Designs but of all women, we want to take the opportunity to highlight another fierce entrepreneur: Marjorie Reese Carson, founder of Marge Carson furniture.
“In 1947, California-based interior designer Marjorie Reese Carson found herself in a quandary. Brimming with creative ideas for her clients’ posh homes, nobody made the caliber of furniture she needed to bring her designs to life. Unwilling to compromise, and being an entrepreneur at heart, she took matters into her own hands. In this post-war environment she hired two upholsterers and converted an old chicken coop into a custom upholstery shop. This bold move ultimately resulted in the creation of her own furniture lines and decorative upholstery to fill a frustrating void in the residential furniture marketplace.”
Today, Marge Carson upholstery, case goods, occasional and accent furniture is available globally as well as on display in our beautifully remodeled showroom. Still family owned and operated, “Marge Carson remains true to Marjorie’s founding premise: introducing to the marketplace beautiful designs with impeccable quality, terrific shape and scale and perfectly tailored applications of phenomenal fabrics, trims, finishes and accents.”
Linly Designs, together with Marge Carson, continues to offer exquisitely designed furniture with an uncompromised quality of craftsmanship.
