Textile design firm Brentano has announced it will open its flagship showroom in the Merchandise Mart in Chicago this year. The move marks the company’s debut on one of the contract floors at NeoCon 2013, North America’s largest design exposition for commercial interiors.
“We’re incredibly excited and proud of this moment,” says Design Director Iris Wang, with her husband and co-founder E-Kwan Chen. “There’s no better time, no bigger platform than NeoCon to show how Brentano does contract.”
