In Fall 2020, Monmade introduced a collection of furniture, lighting, and décor from our catalog to complement Module’s adaptable, eco-friendly homes at its Black Street Development. Debuting three city-dwellings, Black Street features Module’s model for residential design. The temporary showroom allowed visitors to experience Monmade’s collection of responsible, locally-made products while exploring this innovative development in Pittsburgh.
