- $60 for $120 worth of home decor and gifts
Uptown Artworks founder Lori Blum was so inspired by typography and vintage New York City subway signs that she started translating them into an unlikely medium: pillows. Under the name Uptown Artworks, she crafts more than 100 variations on these unique home accents, printing water-based inks onto eco-friendly natural linen and cotton. Blum also invites clients to use her nearly infinite color palette and to design their own pillows. Though perhaps known for these colorful, text-wrapped accessories, the studio also makes fashionable wall art and helps clients personalize wedding and housewarming gifts. The Port Washington store makes lucite serving trays and monogrammed totes.
