Custom rugs at this Chicago financial office

Located in a 100-year-old building on the Chicago River, this office takes advantage of the industrial aesthetic inherent in the building’s architecture. The building was initially designed to house Montgomery Ward’s shipping facility when catalog ordering first became popular.  The Kuchar design celebrates the textures of the original concrete and metal details as well as the building’s history. Employees first used the original building corridors on roller skates so they could quickly get orders from one part of the building to another.  Inspired by this story, Kuchar redesigned the building corridors to allow for a lane of scooters. The wide corridors of this Chicago project are designated by custom rugs, which look like vintage rugs and designate foot traffic from scooter traffic. For more project images check here.

The ege carpets product used in this collection is part of the Highline Express concept, which can be easily recolored. This specific pattern is a Mr Christian Lacroix design. If you would like to recolor some ege carpets patterns yourself or, then check out this page. With the recolor tool, you can easily customize your carpets without the constraints of custom design. There is no order minimum on recolored patterns, and the sample turnaround is an average of 3 business days. Please reach out to one of our team members if you would like assistance or guidance recoloring patterns. We love this Chicago project with our semi custom rugs concept.

It is no secret that Paris has been the capital of fashion since the seventeenth century. The city has been the playground for prestigious designers and couture brands like Chanel, Dior, and Saint Laurent. Today the Parisian style is not only an aesthetic choice but a philosophy. It embraces elegance, timelessness, and slow responsible fashion. The focus is on the cut and the quality of the materials. No fluff or excessiveness with a less is more approach. And what better way to understand Parisian fashion than to visit a museum dedicated to it.

For more than 70 years, the house has been crafting magical couture pieces in their atelier at 30 Avenue Montaigne in Paris. Christian Dior has made this location a legendary address since the first collection in 1947. Behind its new flagship, the House of Dior inaugurates a permanent exhibition in an extraordinary gallery, independently of its boutique. Mr. Dior wanted to be an architect; the building and the museum pay him a beautiful tribute today.

The staging is astonishing. A circular staircase at the entrance showcases 452 dresses and 1,422 accessories, all 3D printed. Bags, shoes, perfumes, and small objects: so many testimonies of the Dior style materialized to elaborate this Diorama.
