A NEW MEETING POINT FOR FURNITURE DESIGN PROFESSIONALS IN CHICAGO
As a global textile company we have a sincere wish to be close to our customers around the world. In September 2021, we open the doors to our new showroom located in the trendy, colorful and creative Fulton Market district in Chicago at 333. N Green Street. With true dedication for collaboration and development of innovative furniture solutions, we are looking very much forward to welcome our customers and partners in North America.
Our vision for the showroom is to create an inspirational venue and meeting place for architects, designers and furniture manufacturers. We want to create a hub of inspiration and product knowledge that encourages innovation, creativity and design.
An inviting and flexible workspace
The 3,900 square foot open layout is Gabriel’s largest in the world with plenty of room for a diverse range of activities. Designed with various working areas and private nooks, the showroom provides designers, architects and other professionals with an inviting, inspiring and adaptable place to work, meet and network.
Encouraging flexible co-working, the showroom design taps into the trend of hot-desking and the idea of checking into work-anytime and anywhere to enjoy the benefits of cross disciplinary collaboration, community and creativity. With its large kitchen area and expansive patio, the showroom also offers the perfect setting for special events and meetings.
With our new Chicago venue, we once again expand our network of showrooms across the globe and move closer to our North American customers. We look forward to welcoming customers and partners and creating innovative furniture solutions.
Conveniently located on the first-floor retail space in the Fulton Market district, the Gabriel showroom will contribute to an already edgy, bustling and fast-expanding neighborhood joining other notable design brands with a strong creative and urban vibe. The showroom is open 9am-5pm, and by appointment outside normal business hours.
A breath of Scandinavian design tradition
Dating back 170 years, Gabriel is deeply rooted in the Scandinavian design tradition, and the style and interior of the showroom draws clear inspiration from its Scandinavian heritage. The interior is characterized by an understated Nordic aesthetic complimented by furniture displays from internationally renowned partners all dressed in Gabriel fabrics. Guests can peruse built-in shelving units featuring Gabriel’s signature wool, recycled polyester (made from plastic bottles) and mesh fabrics on backs, cushions, screens and hangers showing the full range of colorways, as well as acoustic elements spread throughout the space with a sculptural expression.
One of the focal points of the showroom is a beautiful, modular sofa upholstered in 27 different colors in Gabriel’s wool and recycled polyester fabrics for visitors to “experience” the fabrics and get inspired on how to mix textures and colours. Another special feature are the statement-making long fabrics lanes hanging from the ceiling that serve as a decorative element in the showroom.
