Curated from years of traveling and collecting, @loveadorned is one of the most attractive and beguiling boutiques around. A fine jewelry and lifestyle store from veteran retailer Lori Leven focusing on vintage jewelry, one-of-a-kind pieces, and artisanal home décor. It has been a minute since I have been in her shop on Elizabeth Street in NYC but had the pleasure to step into her Amagansett shop and meeting Ella. A smart and long term LA employee… and friend to my Niece which was a lovely discovery.
You cannot walk into any of the locations and not be taken with the floor to ceiling kaleidoscope of discovery. From the painted compass star on the floor to the nautical glass spheres decorating the ceiling… the store is filled with dried flower markets, antique display cases filled with jewelry and vintage objects, textiles to be wrapped in, kitchen goods, throw pillows, and beautifully scented candles to either give away or bestow yourself.
Lori’s story is a fascinating one, she founded New York Adorned in 1996 with a dream to build a tattoo art scene that mirrored NYC’s thriving art world in a time when tattooing was in violation within the city’s 5 boroughs. Love Adorned was born as a standalone, companion sister shop she expanded the jewelry business and her interests in art, design, and world travel. Love Adorned has since become a touchstone for stylists and creatives, all of them coming to visit the ever-changing assortment of jewelry, homewares, and vintage objects. Though the curation is ever evolving, one constant remains the same: Lori’s belief in each one.
