Last month, Mohawk Group celebrated the grand opening of its New York City Showroom.
Within NYC's bustling fashion district, Mohawk Group now boasts an innovative 13,000-square-foot flagship showroom that fully incorporates the company's "Believe in Better" mantra, as well as LEED and WELL Building Standard qualifications, to reflect new chapter of sustainable design.

Filled with natural light, fauna and flora, the new Gensler-designed space took a little over a year to create, and it's easy to see why it is a 2018 NYCxDesign honoree. Open and inviting, the showroom allows the company to showcase all parts of its business from various commercial segments to its focus on sustainability and design.
The flow of the space includes intentional workspaces throughout the showroom to represent the different market segments that Mohawk Group serves. Sitting areas, break areas and work stations are named after different Mohawk facilities to further the connected experience.
Until you can visit 125 West 25th Street in person, here's a behind-the-scenes look at this modern, sustainable showroom and inspiration behind it:
Reception Area (below): As soon as you step off the elevator, you immediately step foot on our beautiful, MetropolisLikes award-winning Goonj boadloom to welcome you inside this greeting area. It's a warm, textured space representative of our hospitality division that will play host not just to NYC clients, but those from around the world.
Kitchen (below): Using the principles of WELL, the sustain and nourishment area was crafted around human-centric design, health and wellness. From the cleaning supplies used, down to the portion size of snacks provided, every aspect works toward the well-being of the people in the space and provides a place to recharge and refuel.
An extension of this area is also found in the planter box herb garden, where fresh mint, sage and other varieties are grown for visitor and employee use.
Display Cubes (below): The main area features our Tentree engineered hardwood from the Silvius Collection and is home to our innovative pop-up cubes. Essentially functioning as retail display with ample room for easily accessible samples, these eye-catching versatile cubes allow for graphics and products to be boldly displayed and quickly switched out for quarterly updates and new product introductions.
Communal Space (below): The open plan is meant to provide an abundance of space for trainings, gatherings and multi-purpose meetings. You may just catch live music at an evening event! Country singer and Season 4 winner of The Voice Danielle Bradbery performed a private set, including her popular song "Sway," for an enthusiastic crowd at the showroom's ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Private Meeting Spaces (below): Within the open floor plan, there are also specially-crafted areas for facilitating private meetings. If you need a more intimate space for discussion, the clean, bright area creates the perfect setting for idea exchange.
Named for our 1928 North Carolina weaving mill, the Eden conference room pictured below features a reclaimed wood ceiling installation salvaged from a Dublin, Georgia facility as as well as our Timeline woven broadloom in a nod to the company's woven roots.
