New Trade Showroom, Design Firm To Open At Indiana Design Center Open Gate Collective, Greyhunt Interiors To Debut

Interior Design firm, Open Gate Design is set to open a trade showroom, Open Gate Collective, on the second floor of the Indiana Design Center (IDC) this summer. The firm has a flagship retail and trade showroom in Anderson, IN; this will be its first trade-only location in the greater Indianapolis area. GreyHunt Interiors will also be expanding to the IDC with a design studio space on the second floor in addition to its original Virginia location.

Open Gate started as an interior design firm based in Anderson, IN with its network of residential clients in 2015 and has grown its offerings and brand through its Open Gate Collective initiative which launched in 2022 to serve the design community. Open Gate Collective assists designers and trade professionals by connecting them to brands and lines, representing 150+ vendor partners, through an interior design showroom model. The Indiana Design Center showroom location will allow Open Gate Collective to broaden its footprint and ability to service designers in central Indiana and beyond.

“The design community can look forward to a high-level resource that is upscale, organized, stocked and feels good to bring their clients into for sourcing and have design meetings around curated vignettes,” says Julie Ricker, Open Gate CEO. Showroom offerings will include fabric, furniture, wallpaper, accessories, custom upholstery, and rug lines.

GreyHunt Interiors is an award-winning interior design firm owned and led by Sallie Lord, whose passion for transforming interior spaces has driven her 20+ year career in the industry. Having proudly revitalized the homes and lives of countless clients over the years, Sallie recently relocated from the Northern Virginia/DC Metro Area to Indianapolis to extend her services and offerings to the local market.

“I am truly excited for this opportunity to work with clients in the community and to get to know local talent here at the IDC and beyond,” says Sallie Lord, founder of GreyHunt Interiors.

The addition of these two new businesses to the market reinforce the importance of and interest in specialized offerings and services in Indiana’s design and building industry. “We are pleased to welcome these two new design-focused businesses to the Indianapolis market and to IDC. With these additions, our abilities to offer more design service selection in our area grows even stronger,” says Melissa Averitt, Pedcor Companies senior vice president for sales and marketing.
