Candace Wheeler won distinction in the 1880s with her Honeybee wallpaper design, winning first place in a national design competition. Our Scottish artists interpreted Honeybee for Burrows Studio as a curtain panel and chose their finest 14-point quality to weave the fine detail.

Candice Wheeler  (Circa 1880's)

The industrious honeybee is a fitting symbol of this woman's impressive career. Mrs. Wheeler began her working life by establishing women's aid and needlework societies in New York in the 1870s. Her work helping indigent women reflects the social commitment of early followers of the Arts & Crafts movement.

During the early 1880s Candace Wheeler worked in an artistic design partnership with Louis Comfort Tiffany, Lockwood de Forest and Samuel Colman. Their firm decorated the White House state rooms for President Chester Alan Arthur and worked for other noteworthy clients. Their interior design work is considered a high point of the Aesthetic Movement in America.

Later Candace Wheeler directed her own design business, Associated Artists, with a group of women designers. Another major project was the development of a mountaintop resort property in the Catskills called Onteora. Her artist-daughter Dora Wheeler Keith and architect-son Dunham Wheeler worked with her during her later career.

A crowning achievement to Mrs. Wheeler's career was her selection to oversee the interior design of the Women's Building at the World's Columbian Exhibition in 1893. Candace Wheeler is known as a pioneer among women in the field of interior design and is regarded as a significant roll model for the Women's Movement.
