The Story of Courtly Check

The Story of Courtly Check

So how did our beloved Courtly Check get its name and what is its origin? Who knows where the spark actually ignited—might it have been Italian black and white marble floors from a Venetian Palace that started it, or ancient handwoven textiles from Africa? Was it inspired by a chess tournament, or Jean […]

Cheers to London!

Cheers to London!

We were beyond excited when we learned that London’s renowned merchants Fortnum & Mason had decided to devote considerable space on their first floor to an installation of MacKenzie-Childs. In case you’ve never been there, the store is quite legendary, and the idea of having our designs in the same shop where the […]

Dreaming in Pink: The Making of a Catalog Shot

Dreaming in Pink: The Making of a Catalog Shot

How does an imaginative, super-talented team of photographers, stylists, graphic designers, and set designers make a great catalog spread come to life? I asked members of the team to describe life behind the scenes on one of our most important photo shoots of the season. This spring, we debut the Rosie Sweet Furniture Collection with […]

Breakfast with Joy

Breakfast with Joy

Last week in our New York City store, we had the wonderful opportunity to host our new friend Joy Wilson while she was in town from New Orleans. The party was to help celebrate the launch of her second cookbook, Homemade Decadence: Irresistibly Sweet, Salty, Gooey, Sticky, Fluffy, Creamy, Crunchy Treats. […]

Paris in September

Paris in September

Paris in September? Perfect—what could be better! Only, on this recent trip I was laser-focused on our exhibition at Maison & Objet, the most intense home furnishings trade show in the world. It is Paris in miniature, a tempest in a teapot, and the eye candy is overwhelming. Just to attend this show […]

Lunch with Julie

Lunch with Julie

Earlier this month, my good friend Sarah and I had the rare privilege to feast on a fantastic Lebanese lunch prepared by none other than our new friend and chef extraordinaire, Julie Taboulie. For those of you who don’t know Julie, I’ll do my best to describe her. A few adjectives will doubtless come to […]

Sanna

Sanna

“People are hives…” — Virginia Woolf Once in a while, you meet someone who really makes you stop for a moment, and think a little differently about how you view the world. It might be the inflection in her voice, the way she phrases words like a singer would, how her eyes twinkle […]

Rebecca’s Friday Five

Rebecca’s Friday Five

There are so many exciting things going on this month, especially in our design department, where right now we are wrapping up our spring 2015 collection. (But I’ll talk more about that later.) We’ve all been so busy tidying up every last little detail for the launch that there is never much time for anything […]

Early Riser

Early Riser

I’m an early riser. And I mean very early. One of my favorite things to do in the wee hours of the morning is to make something fresh from the oven before anyone else is awake. Because I get up early I’ve always had ample time to do all kinds of things in the morning. […]

Hats off to Lewis Carroll

Hats off to Lewis Carroll

“Do you think I’ve gone round the bend?” “I’m afraid so. You’re mad, bonkers, completely off your head. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland I often hear people mention MacKenzie-Childs and Alice in Wonderland in the same sentence. I used to dodge this discussion […]

The Problem With Pillows

The Problem With Pillows

My family thinks I have a problem with pillows, as in they think I have too many. Personally, I don’t see it as a problem. It’s just another in my long list of passions. But I do seem to keep collecting them. What can I say? I like them. I have pillows on the sofa […]

The Other Side of the Date Line

The Other Side of the Date Line

Over the past couple of years, I’ve stopped carrying a camera and have been relying on my iPhone to capture elements of my travels. I don’t pretend to be a professional photographer, but I love the idea of documenting my travels in the most candid way possible. Nothing beats this handy little device that fits […]
