Showrooms Curated Comfort LAUREN TOLLES Maison Birmingham, Birmingham, MI Designer Lauren Tolles of Maison Birmingham envi- sioned her new showroom as not only a venue to display Maison Birmingham's wide selection of available products, but also as a meeting place. Recalling her days as an itinerant designer dash- ing around with armfuls of samples, Tolles set out to create a comfortable and inspiring space where designers and architects could meet with their clients in a home-like setting. Tolles explains, "We wanted to create a natural flow through rooms or spaces, much like moving through a home, moving away from the idea of 'vignettes.'" The challenge was to curate a selection of products and finishes that would convey the breadth of Maison Birmingham's offerings while maintaining a uniquely homey atmosphere. The open-plan showroom features thoughtfully designed spaces in a variety of styles, from transitional to Danish modern. At the heart of the showroom is the Design Atelier, a work- space for designers, architects and clients to view samples and develop ideas.
