MONTREAL -- Cozey, the Montreal-based furniture start-up, has launched its 100% Made-in-Canada brand, Nook. By focusing on local production and premium materials, Nook seeks to combine the "rich history of Canadian furniture craftsmanship with design innovation to create personalized and sustainable furniture," the company said in a statement.
Nook plans to replicate Cozey’s modular approach and tool-free assembly, which it said allows for peak personalization and configuration possibilities.
“Our focus with Nook will always be to choose the highest quality materials and only work with forward-thinking Canadian manufacturers. We want to take furniture to another level: premium materials, Canadian craftsmanship and design innovation to put sustainability at the heart of what we do,” said Frédéric Aubé, CEO & founder of Cozey.
“We have a rich heritage in furniture manufacturing in Canada and it was important for us to offer the alternative of local production to customers," said Aubé. It is something that many customers were asking for and something that we were committed to since we launched Cozey. We then took Nook beyond in terms of the materials chosen, how we approached the design and the quality of our product.”
According to the statement, this includes highly resistant tight-woven fabric, top-grade Italian leather, wood structures constructed by Canadian artisanry and multilayers of high-density foam bring the quality and comfort to a world-class level. “We chose the best materials we could find.”
Cozey's assembly system creates the possibility to assemble, disassemble, move, re-configure, and add modules to your existing Nook, making it the only sofa you will ever need in your lifetime, according to the statement.
In the upcoming months, the company says Nook will seek to create partnerships with local manufacturers and artisans to continue to expand the collection.
