In April 2019, FLOOR360 will open a new location in Milwaukee at 12500 W. Silver Spring Drive and partner with Milwaukee Magazine to launch Design for a Difference - Milwaukee. Design for a Difference is the first-ever community driven movement that brings socially-conscious design-driven flooring showrooms together with interior designers and other businesses to makeover much needed spaces at local charities. The movement was started by the International Design Guild membership including local Madison and Milwaukee based business FLOOR360. FLOOR360 committed to sponsoring one free makeover in Madison per year beginning in 2015 with the first charity recipient the Respite Center at the Center for Families. The 2016 Charity recipient was The Rainbow Project in Madison, WI. The 2017 Charity recipient was Centro Hispano. In 2018, the design team and over 200 volunteers executed a 12,800 square foot makeover of East Madison Community Center in Madison, WI. In 2019, FLOOR360 will sponsor one makeover in Madison and one non-profit makeover in Milwaukee.
...can be involved. Any person, business or organization that has the passion to make a difference including design professionals such as interior designers, architects and design students who register to volunteer or donate.
