We believe your home should tell a story, speak to you. And what better way to start a conversation than with unique handmade items from around the world.
Inspired by global heritage and wanderlust, our collection is an opportunity for you to craft a story for your home. Handpicked from countries around the world, each product you’ll find at Lara & Lou possesses an energy that will help bring your home to life. There’s a spark of magic behind everything you see in our store - and that’s exactly why they’re here.
The ancient Indian art of Vastu Shastra recognizes the spirit of your home, believing that your house is a living, breathing organism - one that needs to be cared for. Here at Lara & Lou, we hope to help you tend to the life of your home, one beautiful item at a time.
About the Founder
I'm so glad you are here, my name is Orly. Growing up, I moved around a lot, living in two different countries and multiple homes. With each new house, I realized that it’s possible to make a home wherever you are - all it takes is a little bit of intention and a whole lot of love.
When we moved to LA and again had to turn our house into a home, I started looking for beautiful, one-of-a-kind handmade items from countries around the globe, each a reflection of the culture and traditional craftsmanship. I was also looking to start something new, working from home after having our second child, Lara.
The idea to start a shop aligned with wanting to make this new place a home and so Lara & Lou was born. I thought, why not share what I have found with others while doing what I love and working from home.
And so with the hope of supporting artisans & telling their stories, Lara & Lou was created as a source of inspiration.
Affordable and timeless, I believe that what you bring into your home matters.
Intentional and thoughtful, my vision for Lara & Lou is to help bring your home to life through a curated collection of unique global products.
If you have any questions, please feel free to send us a message.
