SquareDirectory 7/19/06 5:17 PM Page 1 Welcome Welcome to LuxeHome™ , the world’s largest collection of luxury bou-


tiques for home building and renovation, at The Merchandise Mart. Conveniently located on the first floor, LuxeHome is home to 29 boutiques and the Design Resource Center, an exhibition area that displays elegant industry products created by hundreds of manufac- turers. Everything beautiful, LuxeHome is a living portfolio of all the best that kitchen and bath has to offer for the luxury home.


It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Architects & Designers Building, New York’s ultimate showroom resource featuring premium brands in kitchen & bath, appliances, tile & stone and home & office furnishings. Whatever the reason for your visit, we’re glad it brought you here and hope this Directory will help you find just what you are looking for.


Experience the latest trends and cutting-edge products in beautiful boutiques six days a week, where on-site manufacturers offer design direction for kitchen, bath, tile, lighting and hardware.


We have prepared this directory for you to organize your shopping trip and see what’s available at LuxeHome. Stop by our two newest boutiques that opened in April—Urban Archaeology and The Nanz Company and Remains Lighting—and visit other favorites like The Kohler Store and Ann Sacks. On October 7, Farrow & Ball will join the LuxeHome Collection as well.


The A&D building is managed by Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc. (MMPI), the world’s leading owner and operator of showroom buildings and trade show facilities, bringing buyers and sellers together in more than 300 market events, trade and consumer shows and conferences each year. Our customers, their clients and the community are an important part of everything we do and how we do it.


Manufacturers and their representatives who operate permanent showrooms and exhibitors at temporary shows rely on our efforts to bring their products to market. If we do a good job, factories keep running and their workers stay employed.


If you have any questions, or need more information, take advan- tage of the LuxeHome Concierge Desk, or log on to our Web site at luxehome.com for a photo tour and calendar of events.


LuxeHome is here to source all of your product needs and bring your dream home to reality.


Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc. (MMPI) LuxeHome, The Merchandise Mart


It is the showrooms, design studios, designers and architecture firms that offer custom goods and professional services as a bulwark against conformity and are the only things keeping our country from subsuming to the effects of generic branding. They also contribute untold resources in support of charities and non-profit organizations by participating in events and fundraisers, many of which are hosted at the Architects & Designers Building.


Retailers are able to find unique products that allow their businesses to succeed and keep Main Street thriving in small towns, growing in the suburbs and redeveloping our cities. Their vitality leads to a stable tax base and the ability of their communities to pay for things like schools, hospitals, police and fire protection. At MMPI, we are committed to creating sustainable environments in the properties we manage and the communities we serve. We build with materials from renewable sources; we clean with products that will not harm people or the environment; we promote the use of public transportation and bicycling as an alternative to wasteful consumption of fossil fuels.


We would like to thank the thousands of design professionals, retailers and consumers who shop the Architects & Designers Building every day for your contributions to the revitalization of our communities and the strengthening of our economy.


Sincerely,


Christopher Kennedy President, MMPI
