In Summer 2019, Monmade introduced a residence staged with artwork and home accessories from regional designers, artists, and makers. Partnering with Craft Development, Monmade worked with local interior design firm Studio Lokken 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.
Products featured at Mews on Butler were designed and fabricated by:
Bombabird · Building Bytes · HK Designs · Jowdy Studio · KMJ Metalworks · Mia Tarducci · Nathan Lucas for Urban Tree · Nicole Renee Ryan · Otto Finn · Paul Rosenblatt for Springboard Design · Penn + Fairmount by the Pittsburgh Glass Center · Petra Fallaux for Springboard Design · Savannah Hayes · Seth LeDonne · Stak Ceramics · Temper and Grit
