A Visit With Robert Herjavec

Feb 26, 2015

Last Saturday we had lunch with Robert Herjavec and his good friends Richard and John.   Robert was in town to visit Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission - an organization that holds a very special place in his heart. 

We met Robert during a recent Union Gospel Mission’s fundraiser.  During the event Robert invited a number of UGM supporters to lunch on his next visit to town.  We jumped at the chance, but asked if our family could host.  While it would have been so much easier for Robert to simply meet us at a restaurant, he graciously agreed to come to our home in Kirkland. My business partner and Crown Linen Designs co-founder, Lyuba, joined in.

Robert, Richard and John arrived at noon with boxes of Hoffman’s baked goods in hand! It was if we were welcoming old friends.  They were so outgoing and engaging that you couldn’t help but feel comfortable right away.

The table was set with many of our favorite pieces and Robert immediately commented on how beautiful everything was. When we told him that the linen was from Crown Linen Designs he wanted to know everything about us.


Robert peppered us with questions about every aspect of our business. His insights and suggestions were incredible.  He has beautiful taste and pays attention to the finest details. When he asked if we had pieces beyond tableware we showed him our bedroom collection. I think it’s safe to say that he loved it!

 Robert, Richard and John stayed nearly four hours before they had to dash off for an interview with a national magazine to further spread the word about the great work Union Gospel Mission is doing. (Keep your eyes peeled for that upcoming article.)  Robert encouraged us to stay in touch and contact him if he could ever be of help.  How generous is that?

What a day! We love the pieces we offer at Crown Linen Designs. To hear that love shared by someone as prominent and accomplished as Robert is so affirming. We are so grateful to Robert and his wonderful friends for their generosity, encouragement and support!

On Tuesday morning, Good Morning America announced that Robert was joining the celebrity cast for the 20th season of Dancing with the Stars. We are all #TeamRobert at Crown Linen Designs!  Don’t forget to vote for him when the new season of DWTS begins on March 16th.
