Chicago-based wood flooring company APEX Wood Floors announced the opening of its new showroom and design center alongside the Merchandise Mart in the city’s River North enclave. APEX shares the building with leading design firm Soucie Horner, who collaborated with the wood flooring company on the showroom’s design. The new 1,200-square-foot space will serve as a resource for the brand’s clients.

“The showroom is designed to help people see, touch and interact with our products, and for design professionals to collaborate,” said John Lessick, president of APEX Wood Floors. “We want industry members and consumers alike to come in, grab a coffee and have a conversation with our team, so together, we can pick a floor they’re sure to love.”
