DESIGNED AS A SHOWCASE FOR THE HIGH QUALITY FINISHED FABRICS PRODUCED BY MALDEN MILLS INDUSTRIES, THIS COMPANY STORE OCCUPIES SPACE IN A NINETEENTH CENTURY MILL BUILDING, ON THE COMPANY'S MAIN CAMPUS. THE DESIGN UTILIZES THE BRICK AND HEAVY TIMBER CONSTRUCTION OF THE MILL BUILDING AS A BACKDROP TO SET OFF THE COLORFUL FABRICS USED IN APPAREL, UPHOLSTERY, AND HOME FURNISHINGS. A FLEXIBLE CEILING GRID LIGHTING SYSTEM WAS ADDED TO ADAPT TO THE STORE’S PRODUCT DISPLAYS. THE BUILDING SERVES AS A REMINDER TO ALL VISITORS OF THE DEEP HISTORICAL TIES BETWEEN MALDEN MILLS AND THE VAST MANUFACTURING MILLS OF THE CITY OF LAWRENCE.
