Luxury home event debuts in Carmel


Commentary by Randy Sorrell

Any plans for February 10-11? Get ready for the luxury home event of the season, the first 2017 Luxe Design Showcase at the Indiana Design Center. Oh, you’ve never been to the IDC? You will be thrilled that such a remarkable facility sits in the heart of Carmel and next to the exploding Mid-Town development on the Monon Trail.

If you plan to build, remodel or redecorate in 2017, experience this fashion show for the home and expect to see the most current sources for inspired living from fabrics and textiles to tile and lighting.

Ever heard of highly edited table top displays? Me, either, until the brilliant professionals behind this exciting event, Alex and Andrea, introduced me to the stunning ideas that can be swiftly portrayed in a very abbreviated space. There will be more than 15 table top displays from the best and brightest interior designers in Indiana.


The Friday evening event, “Setting the Table for Good Design”, will kick off the weekend and be a ticketed cocktail party to unveil table top displays and benefit the work of Coburn Place. The special guest speaker is Gwendolyn Rogers, owner of Cake Bake Shop. Through a moderated conversation with Fanchon Stinger, evening anchor for Fox 59, Gwendolyn will share how her culinary, design, business and life experiences have inspired the evolution of Cake Bake Shop. Tickets: $60 individual/$100 couple.


On Saturday, the public is invited to the building to see the table top displays and attend design workshops (20 minute presentations) by industry professionals that speak to luxury living. Interior design showrooms will feature new product introductions and special activities so visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the latest design movements.
