Opening of new showroom in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart
We’ve been extremely busy getting ready for NeoCon, the annual World Trade Fair for the contract interiors industry, and are thrilled to be opening a new showroom on the 11th floor of Chicago’s Merchandise Mart.
The showroom, in suite 1123-A, has been designed by Angela Gidden, MBE, our Consultant Creative Director to express our distinctive story of textile design, manufacturing and distribution, while celebrating 40 years of heritage, innovation and sustainability. The space itself is designed as a collaboration zone which plays with contrasts and layers, from the stand-out bright white space to the geometric landscape and presentation of fabrics to showcase their rich and diverse textures, colors, patterns and trends.
The showroom opening comes hard on the heels of the move of our North American HQ and distribution center from Indianapolis to Grand Rapids.
To commemorate the opening of the new showroom, we are announcing a bevy of new product introductions, including rapidly renewable natural fabrics made from wool blended with silk and nettle fiber, plus an exciting new collection for healthcare called Halcyon.
