2008 BEST Furniture, Modern
At some point, modern Europhiles have to make a choice: either move to Milan or buy furniture from Montage. Showcasing factory-direct B&B Italia and Moroso pieces (along with molto other imports ending in vowels), this Back Bay retailer corners the market on continental cool. Don’t have an interior designer? Montage staffers will evaluate your pad and make savvy recommendations. Be warned, though: With the euro kicking the dollar’s butt, Italian style doesn’t come cheap, so you’ll need to leave your budget at the door.
