Carmel designer Gary Nance has moved his firm, Gary Nance Design, into space on the second floor of the Indiana Design Center (IDC). The commercial and residential architectural firm offers design services for high-end custom homes.

Gary NanceNance has more than 30 years of residential and commercial design experience. The majority of his business takes him to northern Indiana, northern Michigan and the Carolinas. He brings a fresh dose of classic style, emphasizing functional design plans and architectural details. Working closely with clients and contractors, Nance incorporates integrity through the design as well as the construction process of each project. 

 In addition to home design, Nance offers custom architectural products through the Gary Nance Collection. During his many years of design work he saw the need for a line of products with the appropriate scale-to-design. He offers American-made custom light fixtures, stair spindles and hardware. “Clients, designers and even friends would ask where I could find certain pieces and each time, I had to send a sketch to get them custom made,” he says. He recently designed new light fixtures at Woodstock Country Club.

 Nance is excited to be in close proximity to vendors and other designers at the design center, offering more opportunities for collaboration. Being in the IDC also offers convenient access to 15 different showrooms for product selection. “We are glad to open our new office in the IDC, joining several esteemed industry peers that we work closely with on our projects. We hope that being here will foster new professional relationships and we know our clients will love it,” says Nance.

 This addition is one of many changes in progress at the IDC like the upcoming opening of the Le Peep café and Glass House Gallery. “We are pleased to welcome Gary Nance Design to the building. Adding another design firm reinforces the cooperative dynamic on which the industry thrives,” says Melissa Averitt, Pedcor Companies senior vice president for sales and marketing.

The 82,000 square foot Indiana Design Center serves as a statewide resource that features showrooms, design professionals, artists, and endless resources for residential and commercial interiors, which creates an innovative and synergistic community. Events enable consumers and professional groups to connect through a myriad of business development, networking, educational and promotional opportunities. Open to the public and to design professionals, there is inspiration at every corner.

The IDC is a member of Design Centers International and a Pedcor development that anchors the Carmel Arts in Design District at 200 S. Rangeline Road in Carmel, IN, just 30 minutes/23 miles from downtown Indianapolis. For more information, visit
