MacKenzie-Childs Furniture Perhaps nowhere does our imagination run freer—or manufacturing become more complex—than in furniture. To translate our design fantasies into MacKenzie-Childs products, we seek out the best production partners in the world. Often, happily, these are right here in our Aurora studio. Sometimes, we go further afield in the U.S. or to other countries to find the best-in-class manufacturers to bring our designs to life. The process of hand-painting furniture and accessories requires concentration, skill, and artist’s eye and hand.

Blog Amy Hicks’s Oakley the Bear Amy Hicks, winner of our 2012 photo contest, just released her first pattern! Meet Oakley the Bear. Le Grillon Voyageur qui organise des ventes privées deux fois par an a exposé certaines de mes toiles. C'est un très grand plaisir pour moi de voir ces toiles présentées dans une décoration aussi pleine d'esprit et d'élégance. L'essence de la peinture décorative est un art de la relation. Une peinture décorative n'est pleinement vivante que lorsqu'elle communique avec un lieu et dialogue avec des objets , des lumières, des couleurs et des textures. Mes toiles ne sont pas des solistes mais des musiciens dans l'orchestre.

I’m working on something new : In a few weeks I will begin to offer patterns and kits for sale; some brand new things as well as a couple of my most popular items. I’m going to start with six projects and build from there. I’ll share my creative practices, techniques, top secret tips and tricks and inspirations. I’m very excited and energized about this and I hope you will be too. I’ve got lots and lots of ideas for projects I’d like to share – fabric, paper mache and crepe paper- and I would also love to know what you might like to make or techniques that interest you.
