Going Green with Montauk & Organic Looms

River North is the ultimate destination for interior design. Neighboring showrooms engage in friendly competition, but some partner up in the name of sustainability. Montauk and Organic Looms have a working relationship that we have been dying to share. Montauk produces luxury seating and Organic Looms specializes in handcrafted rug collections, together they are a green design enthusiasts’ dream come true!

Organic Looms celebrates both health and beauty by providing exceptional rugs made from the finest materials in their most natural state. Offering sustainable, environmentally friendly hand-knotted rugs made of all natural fibers with fabrication techniques Organic Looms is positively effecting our environment. Montauk takes pride in providing fashionable sofas with no impact on the environment. They embrace ecologically advanced incentives to solve issues such as biodegradability.

Staying true to a Green Initiative both Montauk and Organic Looms pair hand woven rugs with sofas and chairs. Each pairing carefully curated and are switched out every 3 to 4 weeks. We spent a day in the Montauk showroom and are now sharing our favorite vignettes!
