Column: Enjoy the IDC experience
Commentary by Randy Sorrell
First timers are a little shocked, uncertain of what to expect and a bit overwhelmed. Delightfully so! The products are fresh. The finishes are smooth. And the building is a testament to well-thought design. Home to 15 showrooms and 20 design firms, the Indiana Design Center is a relevant destination for anyone considering a home remodel or new construction project. The building is open to the public, and the staff will be happy to direct your journey.
Our experience was formalized Feb. 15, when we moved into an IDC studio space. Suite 219 is industrial, edgy, inviting and thriving. Our strategic move has exceeded our expectations, and I am thrilled to witness giddy first-timers and seasoned returnees explore the building’s offerings.
Here is what we have experienced in our quick few months: immense collaboration, great eats at Blu Moon Café, talented professionals engaged in the latest technology and fashion, forward-thinking designers sharing ideas and promoting your project to the best in the business. Thrilled homeowners are amazed at the resources available from mattresses, flooring options, vanities and kitchen vignettes, drapery displays, home automation solutions and almost everything else for your dream home.
A few recent projects prompted us to bring in Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery for interior lighting, faucets and bathroom vanities. A patio update saw us working with Caryn at Drapery Street for porch blinds, Brian at Godby Hearth & Home for a fire feature consult and Tay with The Premier Group for audio. Genius designer Adam Gibson has included our firm in a kitchen remodel. And of course … lots of yummy Blu Moon Café visits.
If you are interested in taking a closer look at the IDC, join me at 6 p.m. June 9 for a presentation that I will be leading titled “Inspired Exteriors: Trends in Outdoor Living & Space Design.” Get a feel for fresh luxury outdoor living ideas, take a quick tour of the IDC and enjoy complimentary tastes from Blu Moon Café.
Stop by and stroll the stimulating surroundings. I hope to see you there.
