It was 1995 when a young entrepreneur, Tim Zyto, created the first Montauk Sofa. Tim had grown up steeped in the old world tradition of sofa making. His father was the owner of Biltmore Chesterfield, a successful, well respected furniture maker, who sold to retailers across Canada. The original Montauk Sofa store opened in Montreal on St. Laurent Boulevard, an iconic cultural corridor fondly referred to as the Main. Zyto brought in Danny Chartier, as head designer and executive manager and together they made up the yin and yang of what is today recognized as the Montauk brand. The larger than life minimalist cool space soon became a magnet for the ne plus ultra clientele and the go to destination for interior designers and decorators across the city. The rest is history. You can now find a Montauk Sofa showroom in the most dynamic cities in North America - Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, New York and Chicago.
All Montauk Sofa upholstered products are hand made at their Montreal factory in St. Henri. Montauk sofas always start out with a traditional solid wood frame covered with springs which are held in place by eight-strand flax rope (the highest standard in the industry), all covered by memory foam and down filled feather cushions. There is no compromising on quality. “More wood, more metal, more feathers,” Zyto confirms. The depth of the couch is generous, the cushions offer incredible support, allowing you to sit or lounge in absolute comfort.
Montauk’s range of custom design options enable clients to create furniture uniquely fabricated in accordance with individual needs and personal vision. Adapt a love seat to convert to a sofa bed, create a customized sectional arrangement, extend the standard measurements of a sofa or order light weight linen slipcovers to transform a living space to reflect the change of seasons… the only limit is the imagination. Standard measurements (length, height and width) on all our products can be altered and customized to your needs upon request.
