Back in the fall, I made the trip to New York City to celebrate the wedding of a dear friend. While I was there, I did a little shopping with the girls and couldn’t resist stopping into one of my favorite shops in SoHo for some eye candy! I say eye candy because much of the things I fall in love with here are out of my price range, but that doesn’t stop me for appreciating all the beautiful artistry on display.
The shop is called Love Adorned, and it’s insides are scattered with an array of handmade goods, from jewelry to rugs, home decor accessories, throw blankets, and more. I love the presence of nature in the store, both in its decoration and it’s merchandise. Much of the woven goods have a tribal feel to them, and such great colors!This mask reminds me of some of the totems I saw on a trip to New Zealand a few years ago, shooting a documentary on the Maori healers there.
Each case displays a different jewelry artist’s pieces. They asked that I not take pictures of the specific jewelry on display, but I must direct you to their website to see some of them. This is one of my favorites. This two sided antique velvet sofa provides a striking visual “welcome” into the store. …And this one was just a nonchalant bystander, used as a display for some hand-woven blankets. They had a few display tables for affordable gift items like these, which would be great purchases if you’re not in the market for jewelry. They also sell some select leather goods, and many one-of-a-kind pieces. This little nook is a great spot for their eclectic collection of home goods and knickknacks. So if you’re in SoHo, stop in and check it out. You won’t be disappointed! I will definitely be back, and maybe one of these days I’ll walk out with some of these.
Do you have a favorite shop somewhere? Let me know about it!
