Linda Taneja Awarded GOLD MEDAL

International FREESIA Sustainability Innovative Design

Our Roots .....

Founder and CEO of Soul Design, Australian born and bred Linda Taneja (Maiden: Barnes), proudly 8 generations in this great land, grew up in country NSW.

Moving to the big smoke (Sydney) which is totally different to life in the bush was challenging and this was just the beginning!

With entrepreneur parents filled with the great Aussie spirit of not giving up, being a family member, you learn to adapt and embrace the new.

The sowing of the seed!

Although, they were moving to the big smoke to flee the drought, they would not have had any idea the impact instilled on their children.

It created a fighting strength which all 5 children have embraced.

After school, Linda joined the family business and learnt much from her Father who is very particular when it comes to doing things properly. This is where the attention to detail became an important element.

The Seedling emerged and evolved

In 2003, while living in Singapore on an overseas posting, Linda, armed with a Bachelor of Business from University of Western Sydney, commenced operation of the family business, Soul Design.

With a love for nature the seedling emerged and transformed over the years since returning home to Australia.

Being able to share the love of nature in our family business is truly pleasing.
