Working with the city and the state will help us to hire and train the high caliber talent that our clients deserve. Our thanks to the city of Carmel, the state of Indiana and the Indiana Design Center for partnering with us to make our new design studio and commercial furniture showroom an impressive reality.”

“We are happy to share in the success of Mitsch Design, which moved its headquarters into the Indiana Design Center five years ago,” said Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard. “Our vision for the Design Center was to provide a home for the best and brightest designers and their clients from all over the Midwest. We are thrilled to see Jeryl Mitsch and her team expand their operation and we look forward to watching them grow.”
