California-based Million Dollar Baby was founded in 1970 when a young couple’s two children were just about to transition from cribs into toddler beds; because they’d read it cost one million dollars to raise a child, they decided to use that fact as the company name. Today the two children, both Harvard graduates, run the company that is now known as MDB Family; the business markets goods under multiple brands and has grown both organically and through acquisition. MDB Family acquired Nursery Works in 2010; it creates cutting edge juvenile products for the ultra-chic and sophisticated consumer. The company brings high design into the nursery setting, taking pride in the design, quality and functionality of each exquisitely crafted item. Products include stylish handcrafted contemporary rocking chairs with a mid-century modern influence along with equally fashionable companion foot stools.
