About The Artisans


What began as a passion for Emily Warr back in high school eventually turned into a successful start-up business in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

It all started when she and her best friend Chelsea Cash worked for a Mexican imported furniture store in Birmingham, Ala.

When the recession hit in 2008, the company decided to pour and sell candles.

The unconventional move was a success. Soon, Emily became motivated to start her own candle company—someday.

A couple years later, she moved to Chattanooga and finished her degree in Business and Entrepreneurship. Warr convinced Cash to move to town—she resided in Birmingham at the time—to help her start the candle company.

In 2013, they launched The Rustic House together.
