Media Release: 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 congratulated Maxtrix on its opening,
saying, “We’re delighted to have Maxtrix Kids Rooms flagship
showroom open in Mount Pleasant. Operating at the intersection of
innovation, quality and families, Matrix Kids Rooms is a reflection of
our town as a whole.”
