Party invitees, which included clients, prospects, partners and industry influencers, were given a tour of the new space and an official welcome by the Milliken Specialty Interiors team.
The Milliken Showroom, which occupies a prime spot on the MSTT 4th floor, is modern, warm and inviting and 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. Based on consumer and industry demand, Milliken’s revolutionary 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.
