Can you believe we're turning 10 years old this month? What started as a small-scale project for our founder, Lauren, during her maternity leave, has grown to become an international business offering thousands of designs. Our community has grown with us and we feel honoured to have been invited to some of their most sacred moments and milestones. We're proud to have been an ally through the newborn nurseries, memorable meals, wedding day jitters, new homes and overseas adventures.
To celebrate our double digits, and give back to the community that made us, we're celebrating all-month long. But before we get to the celebration, we want to take a trip down memory lane to show you how our brand and team have flourished to become the I Love Linen you know and love.
It has been quite a journey from the team of 1 that I Love Linen began with. Coming from a family of Linen retailers, Lauren took her heritage and created the brand at her dining room table during her maternity leave with her firstborn, Olive.
10 years, 4 moves, thousands of designs and a few extra team members later, here we are...slightly too big for Lauren's dining room. To celebrate the incredible team and all the hard work that has gone into creating a brand we can all be proud of we asked the team to share what they love most about working for I Love Linen.

Because it wouldn't be a birthday without a celebration, we have arranged a special surprise for the incredible community that got us here.
Not only are we celebrating 10 years of better sleep, but we're giving our community 30% of French Linen and Bamboo Sheet Sets & Quilt Cover Sets.
