Lynn Coit has built her career on raising the bar for interior design in Colorado. An accomplished business leader and award-winning designer, Lynn brings more than 25 years of experience to her role as president and founder of Elsy Studios, a full-service commercial interior design firm based in Denver.
Following the successful co-ownership of another local design studio, Lynn founded Elsy Studios in 2012 with the goal of creating memorable, people-focused experiences through design. She’s since established a reputation for delivering highly customized spaces that reflect each client’s business and inspire their teams.
In addition to a passion for good design, Lynn brings a deep understanding of the effects a building has on the interior environment – insight gained from a professional background that includes both architecture and ground-up construction. Drawing on this expertise allows Elsy Studios to craft more impactful design solutions and to more effectively oversee projects from concept through occupancy to ensure clients get quality results and a space that’s as unique as they are.
Over the course of her career, Lynn has led dozens of award-winning commercial interiors projects including headquarters spaces for Healthgrades, Newmont Mining and CH2M, and projects for Hyder Construction, Liberty Media and NetApp, earning recognition from influential publications including 5280 Home, Modern in Denver and Colorado Homes and Lifestyles. Her work has also been featured in Interior Design Magazine, Sources in Design and Midwest Construction.
Away from her work at Elsy Studios, Lynn has helped to shape Colorado’s dynamic aesthetic, building a more inclusive design community in the process through appointments as President of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Colorado Chapter (2018) and Chair-Elect of the ASID National Chapter Support Team (2019).
Personally, Lynn’s contributions to the community have been recognized with multiple honors including the 2016 Denver Business Journal’s Corporate Citizen of the Year, the 2013 Outstanding Women in Business Award and the 2009 CREW Women of Influence Award.
Lynn holds a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Mississippi State University and is an NCIDQ-certified interior designer. In her free time, Lynn volunteers with organizations such as Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Colorado, for which she sits on the board of directors.
