This two-year old store may become your favorite store in Montreal. Jamais Assez is the brainchild of a couple; he is an industrial designer and she is an interior design consultant. The store is next to their design studio. They sell their in-house brand, Michel Swift Design plus other modern designers, mostly from Quebec and Canada. You will find unique and affordable décor accessories, housewares, lamps (by Alexandre Brault) and beautiful bedding.
Notable products found at Jamais Assez:
- A top seller is the HiLo baby chair by Age Design. At $299 CAD, new parents go for this highchair that can be used from 6 months to 6 years old. The seatbelt-clad chair swivels to become an under the table chair
- Michel Swift Design’s Yellow 6 Degrees Bookcase took its name from the fact that every part is cut or installed at 6 degrees. They accept custom orders if you want it in another colour
- Besides carrying home products from TOMA La Fabrique d’objets, Jamais Assez recruited TOMA to design their cute store bags. The hanging paper ribbon acts as a gift tag. You can also buy a coordinating greeting card; it comes in handy if you are in a hurry
Whether it’s for your home or for housewarming gifts, chances are that you will find some amazing Canadian Designer Products at Jamais Assez.
