Our History


Oak Forest Design began as a cottage industry in 1994 in Sonoma, California by artist/designer Margot Wilson. We are the originator of the glittering beeswax candle, and are located in a quaint studio among the vineyards of Sonoma Valley. Our staff of skilled artisans make all of our candles carefully by hand as we have from the beginning, using the finest natural beeswax available. At Oak Forest we strive to combine the highest quality craftsmanship and materials available to create our unparalleled, unique candle products
