More information

Simply Sam, founded in 2018 by Sam Lund, stands out by combining a passion for mental health and wellness with a comprehensive range of home solutions, including organizing, interior design, and construction services. As a woman-owned, family-run company, Simply Sam provides personalized, holistic home transformations. Our dedicated team of 15 serves clients nationwide, ensuring each project enhances both functionality and serenity in their living spaces.

    Since founding Simply Sam in 2018, our mission has been to make life simpler for our clients. Our CEO, Sam Lund, began her journey with a passion for psychology and family studies in college. However, life took an unexpected turn and she took a break from school, finding herself working as a nanny and assistant. Her dedication and hard work soon led her to become the property manager of a 20,000sqft estate. Here, she discovered her talent for transforming spaces: helping her busy clients organize their homes to create a more functional and serene environment.

    But Sam's journey wasn't without its challenges. Struggling with long-term mental health challenges, she found solace and tranquility in the process of home organizing. It became more than a job; it was a therapeutic practice that brought calm and clarity to her life. As she helped her clients achieve the same sense of peace in their homes, word spread and her reputation blossomed.

    Driven by her passion and the positive impact she saw in her clients' lives, Sam took a leap of faith and devoted herself full-time to professional organizing. When clients began requesting interior design and styling, she embraced these new challenges with enthusiasm, broadening her skills and services.

    Her husband soon joined the venture, bringing his construction expertise, and together they created a powerhouse team. Sam's mother also came on board, adding her flair for interior design to the mid. Over the next seven years, their small family business grew into a thriving company with a team of 15, serving clients across Utah and the country.

    Today, our business stands as a testament to the power of passion, resilience, and family support. We offer a comprehensive range of services, including interior design, construction, organizing, moving, and luxury cleaning. Despite our growth, we remain a woman-owned, family-run business, deeply committed to helping our clients transform their homes and lives with the same care and dedication that started it all.
