When a company that's renowned for its innovative designs and high-performance products opens its first showroom, you can be sure it will be something out of the ordinary.

The Kohler Store in the Merchandise Mart, Chicago lives up to such expectations. Designed as a complete bathroom and kitchen resource for customers, the 7000sq ft store is distinguished by a modern, innovative design and comprehensive merchandise mix.

Michelle Kowalski, manager of store development, says the store, which was designed by the noted New York City firm of Janson Goldstein Architects, utilizes design and architecture to enhance products so that a broad range of style, colors and finish options are clearly presented.

The store features fully functioning kitchen and bathroom products from the respected Kohler®, Kallista® and Robern® brands. Interactive displays allow customers to see and feel the pulsating WaterTile¢ bodysprays and the Sok¢ overflowing bath, says Kowalski.

Customers can also benefit from expert advice, with NKBA-certified design consultants and technical experts guiding them through the process of building a beautiful bathroom.

Other products, exclusive to the store, include Kohler Surfaces, a line of ceramic and stone tiles for the bathroom.

The store also presents The Kohler Designer Series, a collection of bathroom designs created by some of the most celebrated interior designers in the industry. Every room portfolio includes a watercolor rendering, floor plan, material samples, sourcing and background information, and the contact details of each designer.

Customers inspired by these portfolios will have the assistance of a Kohler Store project consultant to help translate these ideas to the customer's own bathrooms.
