Peek Behind FLOR

Since so many of you share personal FLOR Stories about your home or office, we thought we’d share one about ours. A common question we find ourselves answering almost daily is “Where is FLOR located?”

Our office sits in the West Loop of downtown Chicago, just blocks from the hustle and bustle of Union Station, the restaurants on the river and the rumble of the El train.

After moving around a bit, we found our permanent location in the Spring of 2010 and when we arrived to start designing our office, we were met with a blank canvas.

That might seem overwhelming for some, but not our fearless design team.

It has been said an office setting can tell you a lot about the people who work there.  Well, if that’s the case you can be sure we here at FLOR are beaming with color, soft to the touch and crazy about our patterns. We used every style in our arsenal in the main space, bringing a refreshing, colorful approach to standard office design

Conference rooms and small meeting spaces pop up throughout the space, all overflowing with natural light.

Our executives practice an open-door policy because, well, they have no doors. We opted instead for a translucent, recycled, corrugated plastic material for the walls and left entryway spaces for the daily in and out. The carpet design in each office was chosen to reflect the personalities of the occupant, which gives a unique feel to each of their spaces.

FLOR is chalk full of foodies, so the stakes were high when it came to the kitchen, from both a design and functionality perspective.  Vintage fuchsia cabinets are oh-so-US and conversations flow freely with open community tables.

So there you have it.  To see more of what’s behind our curtain, so to speak, check out this blog post done by our friends at Apartment Therapy.  You can also check out a profile on one of our design consultants, watch a candid interview with our fearless leaders or take a look behind the scenes at a catalog shoot.

As always we love to hear from our readers and customers, so be sure to share your FLOR story with us , email it to us at pictures@flor.com or post it to facebook or twitter (& tag us) and you’ll receive 10% off your next purchase. You might even have a chance at being featured on the blog.

    why choose one flor tile when you can have them all? Love the use of all the tiles.

    You need to bring back the lime green and gray tiles shown in the small meeting space.
