There's no such thing as clashing in Flor's brightly patchworked office

SHARE There's no such thing as clashing in Flor's brightly patchworked office

Ten years ago, Flor was a three-person operation in a “little bitty space” in the Merchandise Mart office of its parent company, Interface. Now, the carpet-squares company has over 20 stores across the U.S. and a colorful West Loop loft headquarters designed by Perkins + Will and Interface Chief Creative Officer Chip DeGrace. The 8,000 square foot spot at 600 W. Van Buren houses 40 of the company’s 100 employees in an office combining sleek surfaces, antique furniture and splashes — rather, squares — of color. Flor President Greg Colando and VP of Marketing Emily Olson-Torch showed us around.
