Lounge // noun. a public room, as in a hotel, theater, or club, in which to sit and relax.
Lapo Lounge was created by co-founders and entrepreneurs, Opal Stewart and Maxim Skornyakov. They met while studying Business Management at St. John's University in NYC and after working in the fashion, and digital marketing spaces for 10+ years, the couple decided to leverage their professional experiences and pursue their combined passions for entrepreneurship. This marked the genesis of Lapo Lounge. They launched the brand out of their NYC apartment in 2019 offering hair accessories and have since expanded into chain belts, bag chains, and necklaces.
An anadrome of "Opal", Lapo offers quality, versatile and luxurious accessories for everyday wear that are meant to complement and elevate your unique style. The founders' ultimate vision for Lapo Lounge is for it to be a lifestyle brand that encompases a vision of modern style & living. Welcome to our Lounge, a place to see & to be seen.
We love to make products that feel and act luxurious and yet can be worn over and over again without compromising the quality. We call this Everyday Luxury. Desirable pieces that are exceptionally crafted. Our goal is to offer products that will become your personal heirlooms.
As Versatile as you ARE:
We design our pieces to be multi-functional - stackable, re-usable, made to be worn multiple ways. Chain belts worn around your waist or used as bag chains. Necklaces that can be worn alone or layered together. Versatile charms that can be added to any chain. We love to see you wear our accessories in new and unique ways.
We believe that quality comes first and foremost. This is why we use extremely durable & tarnish-resistant stainless steel for our belts & necklaces. Our art prints are made with archival-quality paper that will last for generations. Creating products that will last is our way to cut down on waste from fast fashion while prioritizing sustainability.
