As of in the present day, these equally charming motifs—pilose teddy bears, frolicking rabbits, and teeny-weeny buffalo amongst them—don Marie-Chantal’s inaugural residence assortment with American textile home Schumacher.
Since founding the luxurious youngsters model in 2000, Marie-Chantal—who’s a mom of 5 and the corporate’s CEO and inventive director—has expanded the label into the approach to life realm with the likes of knickknack, cashmere blankets, and books, together with her personal illustrated Manners Start at Breakfast etiquette information.
