St. Louis-based E.J. Welch Company recently opened its 4,800-square-foot flooring showroom in Chicago – two blocks south of the Chicago Merchandise Mart.

The showroom has work areas for the design professional, an available conference room and complimentary espresso bar. Anna Springer, the company’s showroom manager said, “The intent was to make the space inviting, comfortable and relaxed; a place where designers want to bring their clients for flooring selections with as much-or as little-assistance as the client or situation requires.”

The new showroom will also offer scheduled workshops and programs, including CEU courses.
