Candace Moore of “cedarstudio”
After a career in graphic design, Candace inherited some antique furniture and used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® to freshen certain pieces for her house. When a local Waco shopkeeper asked if she would be interested in selling painted furniture from her shop, “cedarstudio” began.
As a former book designer I realized the design principles used in print work translate naturally into furniture redesign. Saving a deserving piece that’s literally falling apart is a way of honoring the original craftsmanship and reclaiming or reimagining its functionality for the way we live today. That thoughtfully edited mix of vintage and modern is what cedarstudio offers.
Candace works with her husband Kevin who, among other things, handles the heavy lifting and repairs damaged pieces that have seen better days. When time permits Kevin also builds his own line of original rustic garden furniture.
These two have been at Farmhouse almost 2 years and are grateful to be with such a creative group of dealers led by owner-dealer Amy Waters, who they think is “just the best!” Look for “cedarstudio” in the front window and directly behind with its eclectic mix of vintage furnishings, repurposed furniture and unique décor you won’t find anywhere else.
