Society Column: Rogue creator hosts open house for other designers
Looking for a unique piece of furniture or accessory that makes your décor pop? Rogue Décor Company is the only showroom in the Indiana Design Center to offer re-purposed items. Adam Graef, owner of Rogue Décor Company, has the ability to find old artifacts and create entirely new pieces.
The sofa table on display is one example. The idea began with a set of antique apothecary drawers. From that, Adam welded an iron framework, added antique iron wheels and then finished the piece with custom woodwork. He crowned the piece with a glass table top.
The range of products that Adam creates is impressive – everything from countertops to furniture to steel image imprinting. If you can imagine it, Adam can likely create it or find it.
“I began with the concept of creating a space where people could find that one-of-a-kind piece that they can’t find anywhere else,” he said.
To supply his showroom with the one-of-a-kind pieces, Adam works in a shop near the Monon. He works in multiple mediums including metal, wood and leather. His father, Kurt Graef, a retired architect, also shows custom stained glass pieces in the showroom.
Graef draws from other vendors, as well. He sells a custom-order New Dimensions sofa line, which offers more than 300 different fabric choices. The prices for pieces in the showroom reflect their uniqueness, with many sell for several thousand dollars. But for the novelty shopper, there are unusual finds, too, such as handbags made from hardback book bindings.
Rogue Décor conducted an open house luncheon for designers on May 21, with food supplied by Blue Moon. Among those attending, to name a few were: Denise Friermood from Decors and More, April Richwalski from Pedcor Design Group, Erin Sanford and Lauren Coley from Mitsch Design Group, Daren Redman, textile artist, and Kay Graef, Adam Graef’s mother.
The showroom is open to the public and is located at 200 S. Rangeline, suite 113, in the Indiana Design Center. To contact Adam call 810-1658 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
