Interior Design Professionals

Atelier Lapchi, fine carpets and rugs showroomTo make purchases as a professional member of the design trade (designer, architect, building contractor, specifier), it is necessary to create an account with each of our showrooms. Most will require a business card, vendor’s license and trade references. Please contact each individual showroom to inquire of their credentials and showroom buying policies.


Clients may accompany their designer to the Ohio Design Centre as well as make unaccompanied visits.


Consumers are invited and welcomed by many of our showrooms to purchase on-the-floor items. While some Ohio Design Centre showrooms will sell on-the-floor samples directly to the consumer, custom-ordered pieces as well as other items such as wallcoverings and fabrics continue to be sold only through interior design professionals. Consumers are welcome to purchase these items through their own interior designer, or can take advantage of our Designer on Call Program (a consulting and buying service) where we will connect you with a designer who can provide buying assistance, or specific interior design services suited to your style, budget and personality.
