Venable Moore is an artist-driven design studio based in Los Angeles. We specialize in made-to-order, one-of-a-kind, and small run pieces that range from textiles and soft furnishings to fine china and paper goods. The prints and patterns in our collections are all developed from the studio practice of our artist founder Meredith. Venable Moore provides an opportunity to marry her fine art with her love of decorative art and functional, joyful living. Each design begins with a hand-dyed, hand-painted, or hand-drawn original work.
Where we are deeply rooted in craft, we also look to the future and lean into technology and tools that bring the home and design industries forward, empowering us to create cleaner products that still capture the artist’s hand. Embodying the intersection of craft and technology allows us to create a sustainable and zero waste model with the lowest environmental footprint. Our goal is to share our particular vision of beauty in the greenest way, providing heirloom quality pieces that will bring joy and utility for years to come and will enhance the elegance, coziness, and comfort of your space and way of life.
Our founder’s great grandfather, Venable Moore the man lived a rich and varied life. Born and raised in Tennessee, he served in the cavalry in the early twentieth century before beginning a career as a fabricator of bridges. His work brought him to Dallas, Texas, where he would settle with his wife Anna Campbell and their three daughters. He traveled the state supplying iron beams for bridges and buildings, among them the Navarro Street bridge and the central Post Office in downtown San Antonio. Later, he cofounded a company that provided building materials for commercial projects.
An entrepreneur and renaissance man, he was an avid reader, was well versed in Greek and Latin, wrote poetry, and sang in a choir. His commitment to beauty and function - a corollary to his love of bridges - informs our work and is foundational to our studio’s mission.
