Candace Langan, Interior Designer

I’d like to offer a warm welcome to Candace Langan who joined our team as an interior designer this week and expands our portfolio of services to include interior design for yachts.
Candace is an experienced designer specializing in yacht decoration and brings with her active client projects in the marine industry. Equally exciting, she brings a passion for fine linens and custom furnishings that complements our work here at taste, introducing new methods and resources to our practice.

Candace grew up in a boat-loving family in Rumson, New Jersey, and has been associated with yachts all her life. Her first job was with Yachting Magazine as the organizer and manager of the company’s premiere events. During the ten years she worked for Yachting, she met and married the yacht designer, Bill Langan.
 
Candace was hired by New York Yacht Club’s America II syndicate to coordinate donor relations and events, and accompanied Bill to Perth, Australia for the 1987 America’s Cup challenge. Returning to the States, she started her own event planning company and after eight years in the business was asked to plan a party for Meryl Streep. Ms. Streep then invited Candace to be her personal assistant, a position she held until Candace and Bill moved their family to Newport, RI in 1997.

A fashion design major in college, Candace found that what she enjoyed most about her work was designing and decorating event spaces. She decided to continue her education and improve her skills by studying interior design at the Rhode Island School of Design. To combine this keen interest in design with her love of the water and strong organizational skills, she opened her own yacht interior decoration company, Candace Langan Design.  In her 15 years in the field of design, Candace has completed all manner of projects for sail and motor yachts, from classic to contemporary styling, new construction or refits.

I’ve personally known Candace for  years and I’m thrilled she’s decided to join us. I’m confident she’ll be a great fit for our team and expand our commitment to exceptional, custom design.

 

Only the best,
