Next time you find yourself in a design quandary or simply lacking inspiration in this town, head to newish home furnishings boutique Alice Lane in Orem. Adding to the whimsy of the store name, this shop takes home decoration from kinda cute to completely chic—with hardly a rustic knickknack in sight, at long last.
Sitting somewhere between Horchow and Crate & Barrel with an Adler-esque kick (if we must liken it to big-name outfits), Alice offers fancy mirrored furniture, fun motif pillows, streamlined four-poster beds, decorative mirrors and handsome tufted sofas with poppy paint colors as a backdrop. A fresh-and-clean but well-accessorized look is complemented by metallic finishes and furniture with nailhead designs. We were thrilled to see pieces from Utah-bred design team Oly as well as art by YHO favorites (and sisters) Chelsea James and Amanda James. Christopher Marley’s elegantly framed bugs? Yep, they’re in stock, too.
Owners Adam and Jessica set up shop because they couldn’t find anything like it around here—not only a store that reflects their personal style, but also marries modern-meets-traditional motifs, in general. Building on that, Alice Lane also gives you a way to dress up your spread with handcarved details or get rebellious with a zebra print and red leather. And who doesn’t want to get rebellious with red leather?
If you still can’t find what you’re looking for and up for making an investment in your home’s future, the design duo behind Alice Lane also offers custom furniture as well as professional design services. Two cheers for local talent!
