With a population of just under 500,000 and surrounded by nature, the quiet city of Saguenay, Quebec is known for keeping a low profile. A friendly place to visit just about any time of year, this little oasis is truly somewhere you need to see if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Most importantly, it’s the home of the founder of JR, Jack Russo.
After years of schooling, and his time traveling the rest of Quebec as well as parts of Europe and Africa, Mr. Russo always called this province his home. However, his designs focus on the art and culture of Montreal, as well as its classic style.
Growing up in a smaller town, Jack wanted to embrace the culture of the province that was just within his reach. He was able to carry that over in a way that most people can relate to, and enjoy having on display in their homes. A true artist at heart, Jack creates designs that add to the ambience of any common room with elegance and poise. His unique visions come to life and those who know Jack best can see how his traveling experiences have influenced his work. True to form, his craftsmanship and dedication to design are just a couple reasons why people have responded so well to the creations that come from JR.
