Linda Herbst


177 East Army Trail Road, Glendale Heights, IL 60139




Linda comes to Walter E. Smithe from the food service industry, having worked with Restauranteurs and Chefs finding the perfect china, glassware, table top lighting, buffet pieces and more that would work in their establishment.  Her eye for style and love of helping people make her a wonderful fit for Smithe!  She is enjoying the opportunity to work with people to enhance their homes.  

Linda chose Smithe because of our selection from furnishings to accessories, and everything in between.  She loves that there is something for everyone and ever style within our 200+ product lines.   When she works with her clients, you can feel her energy and excitement, and loves to see that excitement and happiness when they purchase.  

Your favorite design tip?  "If you are looking to change something, pick out a piece in your room that you love that has a lot of color.  Then find acolor that may not stand out as much and find accent pieces in that color  -  you will be surprised to see that little bit of color pop out a little more in the piece that you may not have noticed it before."

Her best advice to clients when they start a new project? "Start with one room at a time, if you try to do it all at once you will drive yourself nuts!"

In her spare time, she frequents restaurants such as Bravo or Giacamo's.  Linda loves to make people laugh, and has a quick wit to her.   She loves to entertain, cook, and grill out, and enjoys fishing.
