It seems like I just keep missing all the great design events around Indy and the same will be true this weekend when the Indiana Design Center in Carmel hosts a Community Open House and the grand opening of Santarossa Mosaic & Tile Co. showroom.
If you haven’t been to the Indiana Design Center, this is a great opportunity to see all it has to offer in a fun setting. The first floor retail showrooms will also be open with special holiday displays, gift ideas and offerings.
Artwork will be featured in the Coats-Wright Art & Design Gallery as well as a pop-up gallery.
The event is co-sponsored by the IDC and the city of Carmel.
That’s also the day for the grand opening of the Santarossa showroom, which features natural stone, mosaic and tile. The opening runs from 2 pm to 8 pm.
”As the state’s premier natural stone and hard surfaces provider, Santarossa works with residential and commercial design professionals, builders and homeowners on a variety of hard surfaces applications that range from marble countertops to natural stone mosaics,” the design center said of the firm when it announced its move into the center last year.
“Santarossa’s work has graced some of the finest homes in Indiana and their commercial projects include Clarian North and French Lick Casino & Resort,” the IDC said.
Among the special activities on Saturday:
- Register to win a granite kitchen countertop from Santarossa.
- Take advantage of one-night, special offers and holiday promotions at The Swanky Abode and Holder Mattress
- Enjoy home theatre demonstrations and cutting-edge home automation products in the Premier showroom

- Meet special guest and local jewelry designer, Jill Duzan at Drapery Street; Duzan’s jewelry incorporates organic elements to showcase a rugged elegance
- Meet special guest and local textile artist, Susan Ziel at Drapery Street; designer of purses, fabric bowls and creative fare
Also on Saturday in Carmel, you can do the IU Health North Hospital Gallery Walk just a couple blocks from the IDC. Free parking is available at surface level of the design center and in the underground garage. For more information, go to www.carmelartsanddesign.com.
