Covet Atelier is a shop focusing solely on makers within the Carolinas and their handmade work.


"Atelier" is a French word, meaning "the room an artist works in." Even more so, Covet Atelier invites visitors into that room and provides a space to re-construct the definition of “coveting” – “to have one’s heart set on” – by being a place where quality, intentional, and well-made items replace today’s disconnected consumption.

And for the maker, Covet Atelier provides an engaged audience, made up of admirers of one’s contemporaries and conscious buyers seeking to cherish the traditions of Carolinian artisans.  Each maker’s work included in the shop is hand-selected, curated with other like-minded makers, and featured with the maker as the focus, giving customers a more intimate relationship with the artist, their work, and their creative process.

Covet Atelier began as an online shop supported by seasonal pop-up shops in 2016. Serendipitously, we opened our first brick & mortar in July 2017 within Charlotte's Plaza-Midwood neighborhood. Find our storefront details HERE.
