What our product managers love
January 14, 2020
With Valentine’s Day approaching, you might be thinking a little more about the loves in your life. Well, at MacKenzie-Childs, we love the employees who work so hard to create the wonderful products that you know and love, as well as the new additions that are destined to become your favorites.
And for that, we’d like to thank our product managers, who are always on the lookout, often traveling around the world, to bring you two new collections each year. We love them for their dedication, their eye for detail, and their fresh approach to design.
So, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we decided to ask them to share the products that they love. A few couldn’t resist picking some of our Spring 2020 products, which will be online and available to purchase on January 27.
Anna Quinlivan, furniture and lighting
Concertina Globe Lamp
Anna loves this piece because it’s Aurora Artisanal and a MacKenzie-Childs classic. Plus, who doesn’t like mood lighting at a romantic homemade dinner? “The ambiance of the Concertina Globe Lamp is perfect! And, it has lustre for little hints of gold that are better than jewelry,” says Anna.
Bleeding Hearts Footstool
From our Spring 2020 collection comes the Bleeding Hearts Footstool. The piece literally says “LOVE,” and it has flowers (bleeding hearts) that will last a lot longer than the real thing. Says Anna, “So cute, it’s the perfect size to tuck anywhere. It’s just adorable and has so many little details to fawn over.”

Naturally, Michelle is drawn to our candles, which certainly add romance to any occasion. Her picks also have a pop of red, making them just right for the romance of Valentine’s Day.

This set of six candles look just like a box of chocolates, which, says Michelle, makes them “so perfect for Valentine’s Day.”

Cabbage Rose Heart Plate
This is a classic Aurora Artisanal piece, made in the shape of a heart and decorated with hand-painting. Says Carolyn, “This is perfect for sweets for your sweetheart, and the roses are included (on the dish)!”
Yes, we’re sweet on our Aurora Artisanal pieces, which are handmade here in Aurora, New York. The Sweetbriar Vase, filled with roses, is the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day or any day!

Courtly Check Heart Pot Holder
What could be more appropriate for helping someone who loves to cook handle the hot stuff? Featuring our signature pattern on the front that reverses to red ticking stripe on the back, it’s fashioned in the shape of a heart and trimmed with snappy red piping.
Pucker Up Pillow and Kiss My Feet Bath Rug
Marlene also selected two new products from our Spring 2020 line, and it’s easy to see why they’re appropriate for Valentine’s Day. Both feature bright and bold pink lips that add a big pop of color and charm.
