Milliken & Company’s Specialty Interiors business celebrated the launch of its permanent High Point showroom with a well-attended Showtime industry party and winning Best Showroom.
The Milliken Showroom, which occupies a prime spot on the MSTT 4th floor, showcases the full breadth of Milliken’s innovative interior textiles business, including products suitable for use in home, office and hospitality environments. It features a clean design with abundant natural light and Milliken flooring and fabrics on nearly all soft surfaces.
Milliken’s new eco-elegant Breathe by Milliken collection, which combines all the protection and durability of a performance fabric with minimal chemistry and cleanable natural or polyester fibers made from recycled plastic bottles, is prominently displayed in the space. While the space highlights a wide range of new furniture pieces, many of the furnishings are vintage pieces from the Milliken archives.
All the furniture in the showroom is American-made, highlighting Milliken’s tradition of support for American manufacturing.
The new space was voted Best Showroom by Showtime’s more than 600 buying attendees. The Best Showroom award is given based on popular vote and is open to all permanent showrooms located in the Market Square Textile Tower and Historic Market Square.
“We are very excited to share our Milliken story with our customers in such a beautifully designed space, and we are very honored to receive this prestigious Best Showroom award,” said Milliken Specialty Interiors Vice President Jennifer K. Harmon. “Investing in this permanent showroom allows us to better serve this strategic market, and we continue to work diligently to provide unique solutions and value-added product offerings.”
