Lori’s aesthetic is informed by her extensive travels and cross-cultural design experiences. After selling her textiles in cities across Europe, Lori focused her creative energies on package and product designs for brands such as Estee Lauder, Calvin Klein and Dansk. She established herself in the U.S. textiles market as the Design Director for Jack Lenor Larsen, after which she introduced Weitzner Limited, a line of innovative wallcoverings and textiles that are sold world-wide. Lori also has collaborated successfully with a number of businesses in the United States and abroad: Germany’s renowned Sahco, New York’s Samuel & Sons Passementerie, Rugs for Perennials and West Ellm, and most recently, Papyrus, which features her greeting cards and other gift items.
Additionally, Lori is a celebrated author. A People Magazine “Pick,” ODE TO COLOR: The Ten Essential Palettes of Living and Design (Harper Design), Weitzner shares her unique perspective on the uses and significance of color in design. Immersing readers into ten “color worlds,” she explores the power that color holds over our tastes, decisions, and moods. As a complement to the book, Lori has developed the ODE TO COLOR Analysis, which guides you to the color world that will best suit your home, enhancing the way you live.
In November 2018 she launched her first “textile infused” jewelry and accessory line under her own name and she regularly lectures before audiences around the world on engaging the senses and finding inspiration in the world around us, both natural and man-made.
