Shelley Gorman's River Nor th has a few curiosities that will set you apar t. By Spencer Lubitz // Photography by Emily Wilson L ike so many good ideas, designer Shelley Gorman's interior design store River North was born out of frustration. The owner of de si g n f i r m SKG Designs, which works on remodel and new construction projects all over Summerlin, Gorman says she decided to open her fi rst retail space after spending countless hours looking for pieces to satisfy her customers' distinct tastes. " ere aren't a lot of stores in Las Vegas where you can walk through with your client and get feedback," she says. So she opened her own. Having quickly outgrown the space it originally occupied on a second fl oor in e Market LV in Tivoli Village, Gorman recently relocated to a larger storefront on the ground fl oor, where buyers can also order Gorman's custom-designed furniture. "I love designing furniture," she says. "If I can't fi nd it, I'll design it and build it." Gorman's tastes run toward the quirky—and her eclectic selection of furniture, lighting, art, rugs and accessories reveals a love of mixed media. Dramatic natural tree root sculptures sit on industrial iron bases; graceful iron fi gures do a swan dive down walls; and even fashion accessories such as Cynthia Desser jewelry refl ect Gorman's aesthetic. "She is my alter ego in the jewelry world. I love her mix of metals, shagreen and metallics!" she enthuses. Other unique objects include hand-thrown ceramics by Portland, Ore., ceramic artist Jessica Wertz and French (by way of Miami) candle company Alixx, whose natural wax candles occupy mouth-blown glass and handmade ceramic cylinders. And if you can't fi nd what you want in the store, just ask: Chances are, Gorman can make it. River North, 410 S.
