When Ashley Merrill launched her athleisure brand Lunya in 2014, she had a singular conviction: Women’s sleepwear was overdue for a modern makeover. A business leader with zero clothing-industry experience, Merrill took a leap of faith in 2012, diving headlong into her longtime dream of becoming the entrepreneur and brainchild behind a sleepwear brand that promoted confidence and comfort as the new normal. Her self-described “sleep-intelligent designs” are a fluid hybrid of mind-body comforts. Lunya’s clean aesthetic boasts flattering silhouettes with flat seams that minimize friction. “We create thoughtfully designed, luxurious sleepwear that performs in the bedroom,” says Merrill. When the California-based office began to expand its business plan, the successful startup maven set her sights on revamping the company’s new digs. We’ve got an inside look at her Santa Monica office remodel. Prepare for some serious budget hacks and major closet inspiration.
