The rise of condos across Montreal means that most of us now either rent one, own one, or know someone who does. These smaller, urban-style homes are taking over most of Canada’s big cities, now becoming the norm when it comes to renting and buying in the downtown core.
If you’ve just moved into a condo, or you’re thinking of doing so soon, you’re probably already looking for some stylish furniture to make it your own. Chances are, you already have a Pinterest board full of ideas, but don’t go running to any big-name Swedish furniture warehouses just yet. In fact, you may want to keep your sights on Montreal for the best furniture around.
If you’re looking for show-stopping pieces that will wow your friends and family, look no further than Wazo Furniture, a Canadian retailer specializing in mid-century, modern-style furniture ranging from chairs, benches, and bar stools to sofas, tables, and accessories.
A Montreal-born brand now turned international, Wazo offers high-end furniture at affordable prices. They have plenty of stunning pieces perfect for condo living, but if you’re looking for real showstoppers, the 11 items below are some of their best!
