When I saw this image of garden furniture on another blog, though unidentified, I was certain it had to be MacKenzie-Childs. The quirky nature of this colorful design is easily recognizable. Several years ago, at least twenty, MacKenzie-Childs was the hot new showroom at High Point Market. During that beginning, Victoria and Richard hosted their own showroom and were there talking about their designs and showing everyone around. I am still charmed by my twenty year old image of Victoria, wearing her wool gaucho pants and puppy dog shoulder bag. I remember her hair had as many colors as her art. This artistic wisp of a woman left quite an impression. Looking for the first time at their showroom, I was impressed with the fearless individualism.
Attached are pictures of the beautiful home they created, sold and left to live on a houseboat. The MacKenzie-Childs are the perfect example of those that follow their most intense obsession, mercilessly. We should all be so determined.
