From custom made sofas to upcycled chic, Calgary’s home furnishing and décor experts are always on the cusp of new adventures into styling living spaces. These homegrown locations source locally while translating the Canadian spirit into every piece they sell. If you’re looking to makeover a space or spruce up your new home, here are a few home décor hot spots to get you started.
Wide open showrooms across North America offer an industrial backdrop for the iconic sofas crafted at Montauk, and Calgary’s location is just one such example. Here the brand showcases their handmade products, all of which are conceptualized and constructed in Montreal. These sofas are far from standard; rather they have a unique blend of modernity and edge, exactly what you would expect from the Montreal duo behind the leather, down, and wood that make up these functional art pieces.
There’s much more to the store than sofas, too. With a new rug collection and other pieces such as marble tables, you’ll be certain to walk away with a cohesive look for your home. Their new location opens March 1, and will be located at 617 10 Ave SW (Tip: there’s a sale on until Feb 25).
Country Living Furnishings & Design
Got a certain piece in mind? Country Living is a Calgary favourite and the go-to destination for custom furniture. In fact, made-to-order is the speciality of their on-staff designers and their network of Canadian manufacturers. While you’re there you can pick out complements to your space such as curated accessories or drapery.
Country Living has two locations, one at 3701-17th Ave SW, and the other in Shawnessy at 16061 Macleod Trail.
ReWorks Upcycle Shop
If you’ve got a keen eye for the whimsical, DIY or electric, ReWorks Upcycle’s Inglewood storefront is sure to delight. What’s more, nothing passes through the doors without meeting the strict criteria for sustainability. Zero-impact and recycled materials are the key focus, and Canadian designers take the spotlight. When it comes to finding the perfect accents to complement your living spaces, this should be your first stop. ReWorks is located at 1217 9 Ave SE.
