This place is the ultimate favourite of Rachel Garon! L’Usine is the perfect place to find furniture and accessories with a very trendy industrial look with a definitive wow-factor. We love the terrazzo vases, the geometric sculptures with pure lines, the cotton velvet cushions and the fantastic side tables in natural marble.

We strongly believe that a pretty book is made to be displayed like a decorative object (you might have noticed when stepping in one of our hotel lobbies!). Fill your library with novels or leave a splendid table book lying around in the bedroom or living room. Don’t be afraid to showcase them as you would for a vase, a sculpture or a frame!
Did you know that Quebec is a certified Unesco literary city? This is a title given to cities around the world that valorize their creativity and their rich literary life.
