privilege lies in the process.  We choose to only partner with artists, designers and small businesses with integrity and creative vision. Our relationship with our makers, customers, community and each other is where we place value, and what makes Swoon unique. These relationships enrich our lives. Swoon is a purpose-driven, women-owned business. We wish to make sharing art and design, and gathering as a community a lifestyle choice, while promoting other small businesses, artists and designers. We support our community organizations, with a focus, but not limited to organizations in the visual arts. We opened the Lori Warner Studio / Gallery in Spring 2009.
