Lori’s first break through design moment came at the young age of four when she was living with her single, struggling student mother far away from their support system in New York. Not having the time or the money to put anything other than a cot in Lori’s room, it resembled a jail cell. When she put her new Popeye sheets on the cot, a birthday gift from her aunt, Lori noticed that her room was instantly transformed into something lively and fun. That was the moment that she began to pay attention to her environment. Even as a young girl she could see the difference that design could make in a space and how joyful her room became just from doing one small thing. From there she always paid attention to architecture and buildings.
