Pedcor Companies announced last week that it has signed a lease with Especially Wicker to open a 1,200-square-foot retail showroom at the Indiana Design Center, 200 S. Range Line Rd. The new showroom will open in March.
Especially Wicker is a furniture and design company specializing in outdoor and indoor living spaces as well as high end patio furniture. In addition to providing all types of furniture, Wicker also provides design services for spaces such as sun rooms, vacation homes, country clubs and more. Especially Wicker has a showroom at 4025 E. 82 St., Indianapolis.
With the leasing of the Especially Wicker space, the IDC is now completely occupied, a major accomplishment for the public-private partnership.
“We are excited to have a fully occupied building and about the merchandise mix offered through tenants at the Indiana Design Center,” said Melissa Averitt, senior vice president for Pedcor Companies. “With over 30 businesses in the Indiana Design Center, the stories of collaboration on design projects happen each day. Showrooms and professionals in the building have created strong relationships due to new proximity to one another and continue to elevate Indiana’s design community.”
Averitt has driven the leasing process of the building since the start of the project three years ago.
“Pedcor is proud to have partnered with the City of Carmel to develop the Indiana Design Center and see Mayor Brainard’s vision of creating a design resource for the state through to completion,” Averitt said. “As a developer, we value the opportunity to be part of successful public-private partnerships that improve the community we call home.”
