Located in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York on a 65 acre former dairy farm overlooking Cayuga Lake, MacKenzie-Childs engages more than 100 artisans and craftsmen at the company’s design and production studio. Inspired by the designs of the company’s creative director Rebecca Proctor, artisans create products that celebrate a tradition of American handcraftsmanship. In addition to its popular Courtly Check signature items, some of MacKenzie-Childs’ most popular lines including the Taylor and Piccadilly ceramic lines and unique furniture pieces will be featured at Saks Fifth Avenue.

From now through through December 31, the creative team at MacKenzie-Childs has installed a holiday extravaganza at its Manhattan flagship location, bringing its rustic heritage to life in heart of midtown. The 6,000 square foot store on 57th Street is adorned with one-of-a-kind holiday items such as a gilded sleigh; a menagerie of ceramics sculpted into 10-foot Christmas tree, a giant moose head in the company’s signature Courtly Check black and white pattern; holiday mantles and colorful ornaments; glass tea kettles, pink fish chairs, tartan bells, nutcrackers, tabletop items, fanciful stockings, and tree toppers and spectacular tree skirts.
