Chicago Merchandise Mart Renovations in Final Phase
This portion of MMPI’s redesign plan will be led by Cannon Frank, an award-winning design firm specializing in custom interior design and was recognized as Chicago’s Interior Design Firm of the Year earlier this year.
The redesign will incorporate new lighting designs, a fresh color palette for the walls and ceiling, and new floor coverings. The light fixtures will provide a brighter area for show-goers to peruse permanent showrooms. In addition, a neutral color scheme has been chosen for the common areas, hallways, trim and ceiling to complement the diverse range of hues seen in the adjacent showrooms. New floor coverings will adorn the corridors of the 16th floor, providing a modern, sleek style.
“We are reaffirming our commitment to the outdoor industry by providing new efforts of improvement for our clientele,” said John H. Brennen III , executive vice president, MMPI. “The entire renovation will correspond nicely with more than 45 high-end permanent casual showrooms, and will provide a more luxurious shopping and buying experience for our tenants’ customers.”
The Casual Market, the only show exclusively endorsed by the International Casual Furnishings Association is scheduled for Sept. 17-20.
