Maude Woods

Aug 9, 2010

Upscale home furnishings, furniture and unique gifts fill this newish Old Town store, which owner Carrie Davich says has a “westside/Santa Barbara vibe without the westside prices.” Light and airy, full of vibrant colors, it feels like a French country house with all the trimmings. Davich, who used to be a clothing designer, named the store Maude Woods for her artist great-grandmother, and the store reflects an artist’s sensibility, with just enough respect for Pasadena classicism.

Staples: Such great gift lines as SALT, a fine silver collection inspired by yesterday’s decorative arts; Roost’s succulent candles, mango wood bowls and desk lamps; and whimsical painted French ceramic bowls and plates from SUD and Co.

Don’t Miss: The antique and custom furniture, like the coffee table made from a bowling-alley lane (which Davich says can be also made into a dining table).

We Like: The ceramic dishware that looks like paper goods, and the softest of hand-loomed Peruvian cotton blankets.
