Among the many, many products of the Mary-Kate and Ashley empire that made them multi-millionaires, one initiative slipped under the radar: furniture. In 2005, the Olsens teamed up with AP Industries (a major furniture manufacturer) to create a line of bedroom pieces for teens. Retailers that carried the line included Canadian Sears branches, Levitz, and Big’s Bedrooms.

A USA Today article covering the furniture line and the Olsens’ business said this:
The twins, for example, had final say over the furniture line made by Canadian manufacturer AP Industries. They wanted an antique look, though their tastes diverge a bit. Ashley favored white, celery and other “classically styled” colors, Reichenberger says. Mary-Kate chose darker, more weathered looks. The two focused on details down to hardware.
