Lima, Montana. Design Mecca? Probably not, but we’re excited to help bring Francesco and Marco Gillia to the masses. Hailing from Italy, the brothers, for a brief time, split (one went to So Cal and the other stayed in Italy), only to reunite in Montana of all places. There, Bottega Montana was born among the mountains and open spaces.
The company makes wood furniture using joint systems and white oak and black walnut. However, it is not their tables we’re carrying. It’s their long board. Being DWR’s resident skateboard enthusiast I must give it a big thumb’s up. They’re beautiful, functional and I’ve found a new way to get to work. Swindle just profiled the brothers and the boards launch October 29th.
