Spotlight on: Montique Furniture

New catalogue 16

From humble beginnings to renowned furniture manufacturers, Montique Exclusive Furniture exudes charm, character and timelessness. Beginning in Australia in 1942, under the name "Leichhardt Furniture Co" by G. Rumore and G. Monticciolo, the business was later renamed "Monticciolo Furniture PI".  It was in 1964 that present owner and manager Frank Monticciolo began his apprenticeship, and a mere four years later that saw the first arrival of Italian-made raw traditional chair frames. This arrival would see the furniture company head in a new direction.

In 1995, the established company renamed and was recognised as Montique Exclusive Furniture, and began servicing decorated, designer and retail giant David Jones. From 1942, Montique has strived to continue production within Australia, with all manufacturing, finishing and upholstery carried out by skilled trade personal in house at the Summer Hill establishment (in Sydney). Imported good are obviously manufactured abroad, generally from Italy, yet all are finished at this same location. 

Montique has created a name for itself in respect to quality, professionalism and style. Pieces are either traditional or contemporary, with the company allowing for exclusive commissions and creations if you've got your own idea in mind. No projects are too big or to small, with Montique extending itself to suit the customer's creative desires.

de Le Cuona; Ethereal Elements

New catalogue 4

A new collection of beautiful earth-toned fabrics are now available at our Frewville showroom, and are set to inspire your contemporary palette. 

From de Le Cuona, a new collection has arrived entitled Ethereal Elements which explores the beauty and rhythms of nature with a modern eye, evoking the elements and translating these into three new designs; Seahorse, Turtle Island and Shore.

Amongst the collection is Seahorse, a lightweight curtain fabric. This fabric has an allure, created by its looped surface, an allure achieved by the boucle yarn used to weave it. The light bounces off the fabric and plays on the loops to create the relaxed, ruffled texture. 

Shore is a versatile dense linen, which can be used for upholstery or curtaining and is available in a variety of natural and earthy tones. This fabric is woven with yarn in varied thicknesses and tones, with the texture reflecting the handwoven techniques. 

Turtle Island is as interesting as its name, and is a lightweight fabric perfect for curtaining. It's flowing nature is what makes this textile ideal for draping. Multiple colours are combined, woven together, to create a subtle pattern. 

These fabrics come from a wide range of de Le Cuona's textiles, all of which are harnessed and produced by the best International master weavers. 

For more information on the de Le Cuona Ethereal Elements collection, contact our G&H team today!
