Steven Ortego has creativity in his blood.  Steven comes from a long line of family members who have all, at one point or another, owned or operated a retail shop, so starting a furniture store seemed meant to be, in fact, it has been his lifelong dream come true.  Enter Iola Modern.
Iola Modern - Modern Furniture, Lighting - Real Deal with NeilLocated amongst a cluster of retail shops in the newly created Marquis Station, where East Montague meets Virginia, this little furniture shop offers a big selection from around the world.  Steven describes it as “an eclectic mix of modern furniture, lighting, and accessories.”  Eclectic is definitely a good way of describing it.  The selection of items come from a multitude of locations and include things like mid-century modern sofa’s, lounge chairs, and dining tables from Gus*, a Toronto based furniture designer, Kitchenwares by Alessi from Italy, and lighting produced right here in the U.S. from San Francisco based company, Pablo.

I asked Steven why he wanted to open a shop like this and his answer was simple:

I love beautiful things.  I love introducing people to this style.

Buy why Park Circle?

Park Circle was the only choice.  I’ve seen the upswing in the neighborhood and the people here have a great appreciation for grassroots efforts.
