Pssst... hey you! Guess what? This past February we celebrated the official Launch Month of SPEC'd and to celebrate we gave our website a refresh. Now, no matter where you're located in the along Lake Michigan SPEC'd has you covered.
On the website you will be able to search the brands by region and find your direct rep contact information. We are excited to be your one stop shop for brands throughout our region - so when a Milwaukee firm has a project in Grand Rapids, or a Chicago firm is working in Madison, or Detroit is designing in Chicago we have you covered!

BOUCLE ALL DAY!
You know that big fashion house that has their signature suite in that all too familiar weave, the Boucle? ;)
We can't technically tell you but IYKYK.
The design team created their own signature floor pattern fit for the runway using the Chilewich Boucle weave in Marshmallow & Noir.
The HQ, located in Paris, has Chilewich flooring throughout - the high design, cleanability, indoor air quality and durability are just a few of the key features that make Chilewich a 'go to' spec over carpet.
With a 15 year warranty we are confident that Chilewich will remain stylish both in aesthetic and performance.

IT'S STILL WINTER...
Don't you love checking out the Spring/Summer collection in the dead of Winter? Us too!
Winter is fashion season and we had our eye on a few shows - one of our favorites is Chanel.
We have an enduring love for the classics and a gorgeous Boucle.
Check out the film of the RTW show debuting March 7th in Paris... streaming on Youtube!
At the couture show, models emerged in new riffs on the tweed sets, pin-tucked blouses, dress coats and capes the house is known for a few looks — like a high-neck, double-breasted, flared-waist jacket and a series of top hats and bow ties — are reminiscent of the wardrobe a high-fashion ring leader.
Many of the designs were inspired by the decor of Chanel's apartment 31 Rue Cambon.
However, the main takeaway from the Spring 2023 collection is Chanel's endorsement of the mini skirt. We can't wait until the weather forecast catches up with the couture!
