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 Elm, stone for Artistic Tile, 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), shares Weitzner’s 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.
She recently launched her first “textile infused” jewelry and accessory line under her own name where she utilizes many methods of textile creation and collaborates with artisans all over the world. She writes a column for Hong Kong Home Journal entitled “Living Well with Color”, and she regularly lectures before audiences across the globe on engaging the senses and finding inspiration in the world around us.
