1. What inspired you to start your own company and design yummy blankets for baby?
Leaving a successful career as an American diplomat, I returned to my native Los Angeles in 2002 to start a family. By 2003, I opened a small luxury gift business out of my garage. Among the products, chic baby and adult throws were quickly snapped up as the must-have gift items by Andrew Lloyd Weber’s staff and by television networks and studios including CBS, Paramount, the CW and ABC for their talent and executives. Years later, the company Max Daniel Designs, Inc., named after my first son Max Daniel, is now seen with the hottest celebrity parents and thousands of fine boutiques across the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan and more!
2. Describe 3 words that best describe Max Daniel Blankets.
Silky soft, cozy and luxurious.
3. Who is behind the name “Max Daniel”?
As all parents will agree, having children changes everything in your life! My first son is Max Daniel – he was the inspiration to start this company. He and his brother Leo are what keeps it fun and fresh, and always remind me of the most important thing about our blankets: that there’s nothing like tucking in your child at night and seeing them happy and snuggled up in their beds. It makes me so proud and happy to think that so many children and parents are using Max Daniel throws during those tender moments and feeling the same.
4. Do you have any future plans you would like to share, maybe new collections or new products?
We are very excited to have just launched the very hot new Black Jaguar print. It is doing AMAZING- we are so thrilled with the reception and so grateful our fans are loving them!
