The renovation of Montauk Sofa, located in the heart of the River North Design District consisted of lightening and brightening the space. The 2500 sqft showroom located in a corner storefront boasts natural light with two full window walls. The existing track lighting was replaced with trough lighting, a new dry wall ceiling and a new HVAC system. Montauk Sofa’s mission statement which focuses on their sustainability is exhibited on a feature wall. Fabric samples are displayed in a built-in that was once in a French Apothecary. Montauk Sofa’s new offerings include: Harris, Charlotte, Oscar Daybed and the Hugo Sectional. Special one of a kind pieces include: Stone Coffee Table, made from acquired Florentine pavement from Italy along with the Riveted Coffee Table, a reclaimed piece from the boiler of a ship. The renovation was completed by Joe Luzaj.
Constantly challenging concepts of modern and classical traditions. Montauk’s designs cater to the demands and flux of contemporary spaces. Montauk inspires clients to embrace the perfect antidote to the complex face paced and media hyped world: our individual, personal space that always makes the statement, “living well is the best revenge.”
Montauk’s goal has always been to provide the most comfortable, fashionable sofas with no impact on the environment through greenhouse gas reduction, clean biodegradability and closed loop recycling. Montauk uses wind power to satisfy its electrical needs in two of its stores. The Montauk sofa is a handmade sofa, built with traditional techniques with very little mass-produced, oil-based products. Montauk’s sofas are designed either to be recycled back into the earth or recycled into another product- all objects are designed to be used and infinitely reused. Montauk’s reclamation program offers any owner a rebate on a new item or payment if they choose to give back their used furniture. Montauk prides themselves on their ecological responsibility while maintaining obligations of quality, service and comfort.
MONTAUK creates unique, highly fashionable seating of matchless quality. With a 30 piece permanent collection with endless custom options, MONTAUK’s sofas, chairs and sectionals are designed and built with the highest standards of aesthetics and craftsmanship. Carrying on a long standing tradition, MONTAUK’s Montreal factory is charged with all aspects of manufacturing. MONTAUK’s 6 showrooms, in Montréal, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, New York and Chicago create a visionary environment where pieces stand alone, allowing clients to freely browse without distraction.
