Welcome to Maxwood® Furniture, proud manufacturers of Maxtrix® Kids Furniture

Our Story

Maxwood Furniture was founded in 2004, with a Simple Mission: To create quality children’s furniture we would have loved to have when we were kids.

Being parents ourselves, we understand well that kid’s needs and preferences change quickly. Many times we have purchased expensive toys or furniture for our children just to have to discard them a few months later. This simply did not make sense to us. We also saw that many kids’ rooms lacked the space, functionality and the inspiration to fully enjoy the most critical years of development. Dreaming, playing and exploring are not only part of the joys of being a child - they are important behaviors that help kids grow into creative, well balanced adults.

So based on our European design sensibilities, years of experience in the furniture industry and our conviction that a high quality and extra safe piece of furniture can, and should be reused, we created not just a new line of furniture, but a whole new concept to the children’s furniture market - A new brand called Maxtrix®!

We have added lots and lots of fun accessories, design options and practical add-on’s to help you create the perfect environment for your children. If it’s a super fun indoor playground, complete with a slide and castle tower, a sturdy bunk bed that withstands years of play, or a great study loft that helps your teen focus on their upcoming exams – all of these options can be created from the first Maxtrix® bed they started with. Great quality, re-usable, imaginative, and super-safe.

For our family, this was the solution we were looking for - We hope it fits perfectly for your family too!

Thank you for your interest in our company. We value your feedback, please contact us with further questions or comments.

Vietnam Team

Founded in 2006, our dedicated Factory in Vietnam makes all Maxtrix® products. The factory employs just under 200 people, and is located just outside Ho Chi Minh City.

All equipment, machinery and processes we use are geared towards the optimization of our furniture as well as making manufacturing processes efficient, resulting in industry leading waste material reduction.

We built our designs with safety as our number one priority – so much so, that we often not only meet minimum safety standards, but our products actually beat them.

As we now ship our products beyond US borders, we are proud to say that our beds also conform to stringent European safety testing.

Our hardwoods are sustainably sourced, the lacquers are certified safe for children, and our fabrics are made out of 100% cotton.

    Aspen

  • MAXTRIX® products are mainly made from premium grade, sustainably harvested solid hardwoods like Maple, Birch and Aspen.
  • We use "Select grade" wood, which is a premier classification of beautifully clean and clear wood. We offset the high premium of this material by achieving an extremely low level of waste material in our factory.
  • We do not accept knots in the hardwoods we use is our bedframes or visible surfaces of our case goods (dressers, bookcases and desks). Maxtrix® is made to last!
Their Materials
  • Cheap Pine/Rubber Wood

    Rubber Wood

  • Many Children’s products are made from cheap, low grade Pine or Rubberwood
  • Low grade woods are known to yellow, crack and warp over time, causing paints and finishes to crack and peel.
  • Many Children’s manufacturers accept knotty woods. Besides being unsightly, Knots weaken the structure of the wood, causing it to crack and break easily. This is a safety concern, especially for bunks and lofts.
