In Summer 2019, Monmade introduced a residence finished with artwork and home accessories from regional designers, artists, and makers. Partnering with Craft Development, Monmade worked with local interior design firm Studio Løkken of Indovina Associates Architects to select key products that complement the overall interior design for the model unit at Mews on Butler. Located in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood, this three-story townhouse-style condominium offered products purchasable through Monmade.
