MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. – The much-anticipated Maxtrix Kids Rooms celebrated its opening today with a ribbon cutting and private shopping event for customers eager to get a sneak peek at the company’s revolutionary kids furniture system.
The showroom at 816 Johnnie Dodds Blvd. officially opens its door to the public at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1. This is the first retail showroom for parent company, Maxwood Furniture Inc. Maxwood also moved its headquarters into the building, a former restaurant that the company owners renovated over the summer.
The Maxtrix Kid’s Furniture system is designed to grow up with your child. Made to last from solid hardwood, Maxtrix beds can easily be changed with simple conversion kits, so parents can optimize the space, design and fun factor at every stage of their child’s development from toddler through tween to teen.
Maxwood Furniture was founded in 2004 by Stephen Jensen, a Danish furniture professional who relocated to the United States. His wife, Anne, a former global marketing executive, joined the company as chief marketing officer in 2014 when the couple and their two children relocated to the Charleston area to further build their business.
“We’ve had several requests from customers to develop a store concept for our Maxtrix brand,” said Anne Jensen, chief marketing officer. “We fell in love with the area, and Mount Pleasant seemed like the perfect place to open our very first kid-friendly showroom where families can fully experience the Maxtrix line of products.”
Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page said, “We’re delighted to have Maxtrix Kids Rooms Flagship Showroom open in Mount Pleasant. Mayor Pro Tempore Gary Santos was on-hand today to perform the ceremony and was accompanied by Councilmen Will Haynie, Mark Smith and Jim Owens; Mount Pleasant Business Association President Chris Staubes; and Business Development Officer Amy Livingston.
