Maisonette was founded by two moms in 2017 with the goal of helping modern families navigate the adventure of raising the next generation. We are an expertly-curated baby and kids' marketplace featuring the best products from around the globe: stylish clothing, top toys and gear, and home décor – plus, trusted guidance and inspiration.

We are a fast-growing venture-backed start-up with a unique positioning in the kid's market. We believe what you consume for your kids matters. So whether you’re looking for the safest car seat, the latest STEM toy, or tips on how to sleep train, we’re here for you… like family.

“When Luisana and I started Maisonette, our goal was to make it easier to find high quality products for our kids, so we could spend less time scrolling, and more time on the good stuff. But today, our mission goes well beyond the product itself; it’s a commitment to family. To empowering parents to make the best decisions for their families. And to bringing a little bit of magic into family life every day.” – Sylvana Durrett, CEO
