FOUNDED BY CEDRIC MARTIN IN 2013, PACAMA IS A DESIGN
STUDIO THAT SPECIALIZES IN HANDCRAFTED FURNITURE.
DESIGNS BY PACAMA ARE AESTHETICALLY UNIFIED THROUGH THE
USE OF SOLID NORTHEASTERN TIMBER, CLEAN LINES, AND BALANCED PROPORTIONS. THERE IS A SWEET SPOT THAT IS AIMED FOR IN
EACH PIECE, ONE THAT IS FOUND THROUGH REFINEMENT AND
SIMPLICITY IN FORM,  AND COMPLEMENTED BY THE
INHERENT CHARACTER AND BEAUTY OF THE MATERIAL. PACAMA IS ALSO THE EXCLUSIVE CARRIER OF THE FIBER ART OF REBECCA STEELE.

OUR WOODSTOCK SHOWROOM AND STORE, PACAMA HANDMADE, IS
LOCATED AT 69 TINKER STREET, WHERE WE FEATURE OUR OWN DESIGNS AS WELL AS THE WORK OF OTHER LIKE-MINDED DESIGNERS WHO CREATE THEIR WORK REGIONALLY.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER:

headshot.jpg

CEDRIC MARTIN WAS BORN AND RAISED IN LANCASTER COUNTY, PA. HIS MENNONITE HERITAGE IS MANIFESTED BY HIS REVERENCE FOR TRADITION AND SUBDUED UNDERSTATED DETAILS, AS WELL AS HIS UNDERSTANDING OF HOW THE PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT IS A CATALYST FOR TRANSCENDENT, METAPHYSICAL EXPERIENCES. IN LANCASTER, HE LEARNED FINE WOODWORKING AND BUILT HIS FIRST PIECES OF FURNITURE WHILE STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL. AFTER GRADUATING FROM COLLEGE WITH A DEGREE IN SOCIOLOGY, CEDRIC RETURNED TO WORKING WITH WOOD IN HIS MID-TWENTIES BY CARVING UTENSILS AND BUILDING FURNITURE FOR A CAFÉ HE WAS RUNNING IN BROOKLYN. HE THEN STUDIED AT BOTH THE CENTER FOR FURNITURE CRAFTSMANSHIP IN MAINE AND THE NORTH BENNETT STREET SCHOOL IN BOSTON BEFORE GOING TO WORK FOR A HIGH-END CUSTOM CABINET SHOP FOR TWO YEARS. DURING THIS TIME, CEDRIC CONSISTENTLY WORKED ON HONING HIS OWN DESIGN SKILLS AND METHODS OF PRODUCTION, CREATING COUNTLESS PROTOTYPES AND ONE-OFFS UNTIL A UNIQUE AESTHETIC BEGAN TO EMERGE FROM HIS WORK. THE RESULT IS A FURNITURE COLLECTION BORN FROM ORGANIC CREATIVE GROWTH AND FOSTERED BY HANDS-ON EXPERIMENTATION. A LOT OF INSPIRATION IS TAKEN FROM NATURAL SURROUNDINGS AS THE PACAMA STUDIO IS SITUATED BETWEEN THE STOIC CATSKILL MOUNTAINS AND THE VERDANT HUDSON VALLEY. IN ADDITION TO THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF THIS AREA, INSPIRATION ALSO COMES FROM THE MANY GREAT ARTISTS AND DESIGNERS THAT HAVE SETTLED HERE OVER THE YEARS. ALL OF THAT COUPLED WITH IT’S PROXIMITY TO NYC HAS PROVED TO MAKE THIS AN IDEAL LOCATION FOR A CONTEMPORARY FURNITURE MAKER LOOKING TO USE THE RICH AMERICAN HISTORY OF THIS CRAFT TO CREATE NEW PIECES FOR THE 21ST CENTURY.
