Two people happen across an old farm in upstate NY and fall in love with it.
They figure out how to turn a piece of history into a flourishing new business.
They become home décor icons.
Does this sound even vaguely familiar? It’s the story of Mackenzie-Childs.
You can tour the original home in the Finger Lake region of New York and many of the beautiful products that the company designs are still produced in Aurora, NY
It’s rare that a design element is so singular and powerful that it becomes immediately identifiable to a particular brand. Think the Burberry plaid, the interlocking Gucci ‘G’, or the emblematic Damier pattern of a certain brand of brown leather luggage (see, we don’t even have to say the name!)
Mackenzie-Childs accomplished this feat with their check pattern enamelware.
Hmmm…wonder what will become the Beekman 1802 signature?
