Milliken’s first showroom in continental Europe, located at 40 rue des Mathurins in the 8th district of the capital, between the Saint-Lazare station and the La Madeleine district, opened during December 2017.Milliken Show room Paris  copyright Didier Delmas _02 webThe showroom is housed in a typically Parisian setting with many original architectural details from the Haussmann period such as mouldings, herringbone parquet and a winter garden room all forming a haven for the Milliken collections.

You can view all the latest collections, touch and feel the carpets, experiment with different layouts and create floor solutions adapted to their needs thanks to the large number of available samples.Milliken Show room Paris  copyright Didier Delmas _08 webRichard Fisher, the Associate Designer at M Moser Associates responsible for the design, had this to say:

“The Paris showroom is very much in keeping with the ongoing creative relationship between Milliken and M Moser. The buzz and brightness from the outside street is drawn in through vistas created in the interior space. These connect the showroom to the outside, and allow the product to feel connected to its environment. We took care to celebrate the original features of the building, adding character to the visitor journey around the space.”

The large central islands have been designed as real workspaces where architects and designers can work on carpet solutions for their projects. The numerous displays present the main collections, alongside imagery showing the original design inspiration and pull-out vertical displays house the company’s latest Luxury Vinyl Tile ranges. The floor itself is considered as an exhibition space, with each room offering a different visual experience that will evolve with the seasons as new collections are added.Milliken Show room Paris  copyright Didier Delmas _27 webContact Milliken
