Carrie Davich’s passion for mixing new furnishings with vintage pieces began within her own Pasadena home. She long considered opening a home furnishings store, imagining it as a perfect creative outlet for her visions and inspirations around home design and collecting. Named after her great-grandmother, Maude Woods: Artful Living opened in Pasadena, California in October 2009.
Los Angeles interior designer Michael Berman collaborated with Davich in designing the retail space. Of her, he says: “Carrie has an amazing sense for the original and most coveted selection of art and objects. She has an eye for beauty and all things comfortable, and puts together the most gorgeous objects; creating a new style that is livable and timeless."
