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.
