Christen Maxwell is the daughter of merchants, who found her passion for home products while being raised in her parents' housewares store. She's a New Englander who recently found herself in the Big Apple. She received her BFA in Product Design from Parson's, the New School for Design. Maxwell has worked as a Product Design & Retail Development Consultant, as well as a Buyer and Visual Merchandiser. Christen recently (very recently) launched her first private collection this Summer, simply called Christen Maxwell. Christen Maxwell is a home collection for living. Her inspiration is taken from travel, art, history, and strangely enough for an artist, mathmetics. Maxwell's products depict modern abstractions of culture and nature.
Besides the baskets from Senegal, Christen Maxwell produces pillows, lighting, fabric buy the yard and custom objects, such as bedding. She hopes to expand on her line as it grows and flourishes.To find out more about Christen Maxwell, please visist
