THE SPEC'd LIST :: Inspiration & Conversation

SUMMER 2020 | AUGUST Issue



Check out this Chilewich floor to wall installation at Hotel Duca, located in the heart of Milan, Italy. The hotel was designed by world famous architect Aldo Rossi, who was the first Italian to win the Pritzker prize in 1990.  Chilewich products were selected for multiple spaces throughout the hotel.

Basketweave Latte can be seen in the Standard Rooms, as well as, the Junior Suites, Deluxe Rooms and gym. Bouclé Grey was selected for the flooring and walls throughout the corridors.

All Chilewich flooring is is Green Label Plus™ certified by the Carpet and Rug Institute, which is recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council. Therefore, all Chilewich flooring earns LEED points. Chilewich wall covering and flooring also contain Microban® to inhibit the growth of stain- and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew.


Alone Together! 

The Huddle Collection by Frövi has a new addition, The Work Booth and we are digging the vibe. You can SPEC a fixed base, extra wide seat, work tablet, power outlet and a coat hook. -OR- Ditch the power, add some casters and create a dynamic, mobile work booth that can easily be moved.

Welcome to SPEC'd SPACE, this is your resource to everything you need from the designs you love to specify.

Instead of receiving PDF files that are not dynamic, or information that is outdated, it is our goal to provide you with a resource that's easy to activate and locate the helpful resources all of our manufacturers provide. It's our goal to make it easy to specify product, get samples, download images and learn more about care and maintenance.


A Superior Destination

We have a deep fondness for National Parks and try to visit them whenever possible. This year has us sticking close to Chicago, so we went searching for a destination that felt exotic and accessible. The Apostle Islands have been on the Mid-West Bucket List and this is the perfect year to go exploring. 

Apostle Islands National Lakeshore comprises a stretch of shoreline and 21 islands at the northern tip of Wisconsin, on Lake Superior.

On the mainland, the Lakeshore Trail winds past cliffs and sea caves. Many islands have trails and marinas. Wildlife includes bald eagles, falcons and black bears. Sand Island and Raspberry Island have 19th-century lighthouses and the Lucerne shipwreck is just off Long Island.
