Outdoor décor company plans to close in April

ST. LOUIS — Studio M Home, maker of outdoor décor and gift products, announced via email that it will close in April. Officials cited enduring financial hardships, further intensified by the challenges of the pandemic, as the key reason for ceasing operations.

“It has been an incredible journey filled with creativity, challenges and countless memories,” said Sue Todd, co-founder of Studio M. “We are deeply grateful to the many talented employees, artists, vendors, sales agencies, retailers and customers who have made this journey so memorable and rewarding.”

Studio M’s roots go back to 1989 with the invention of the MailWraps magnetic mailbox cover. As the creators of a patented product, Curt and Sue Todd were able to develop relationships with licensing artists. As the patent ran its course, the Todds brought licensed artwork to a wide variety of categories for the home and garden.

“It has been incredibly difficult to say goodbye to this company and to the industry we have been a part of for so long, but we’ve reached a point where we cannot continue,” said CEO Curt Todd. “It’s not common for companies to last 35 years, and it’s particularly rare in the highly creative and dynamic gift and home industry. We are proud of what we have accomplished and the impact we have made on both the industry and our community of artists, employees, retailers, customers and vendor partners.”

Studio M will continue accepting orders from retailers through March 25, with inventory being limited and offered on a first-come-first-serve basis. Discounts will be available on select items to clear remaining inventory.
