I am the creator & curator of Covet Atelier – a shop focusing solely on makers within the Carolinas and their handmade work. Born and raised in the Piedmont of North Carolina, I value the history the region holds as a place for artisans and handmade living, and I wanted to create a space honoring just that.  

"Atelier" is a French word, meaning "the room an artist works in." Even more so, Covet invites viewers 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 provides a new 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 Covet is selected, curated with other like-minded makers, and featured with the artist as the focus, giving customers a more intimate relationship with the artist, their work, and their creative process.

Welcome & Enjoy,

Kimi Pace

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