Fischer Homes Builds the 2022 Centerpiece Home


Indianapolis Home Show Back for its 100th Year, Fischer Homes Returns as Builder for Centerpiece Home

The oldest home show in North America returns for its centennial year

INDIANAPOLIS (November 17, 2021) – The 2022 Indianapolis Home Show is back for its centennial anniversary, and Fischer Homes returns to lead the builder team for the Centerpiece Home.

 Fischer Homes will unveil the Leland floorplan, part of its Masterpiece Collection, with a Modern Farmhouse elevation as the Centerpiece Home, which is built entirely inside Exposition Hall at the Indiana State Fairgrounds and Event Center. This two-story, 3,376-square-foot home includes four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a three-car garage and the option of a finished lower level. It also offers a two-story family room with shiplap fireplace, spacious hearth room with fireplace, gourmet island kitchen with butler’s pantry, private owner’s suite on the first floor and a flexible loft space.

 “Fischer Homes is thrilled to be back at the Indianapolis Home Show,” said Market President Indianapolis Division Brad Kriner. “This year's home will be our ninth Centerpiece Home, and we look forward to highlighting everything new we have at Fischer Homes — new designs, new communities and a growing and exceptional team.”

 The mother-daughter trio from TOB Design Firm — Joy Perkins, Macara Carsley and Danielle Harris — is also back this year, bringing their unique flair to the Centerpiece Home interior. The aesthetic for the Leland is “modern haven.”

 “We believe the details make the design, and the Leland home is dressed head to toe for the party,” Carsley said. “The furnishings command high-contrast movement fused by woven linens, sultry velvets and cozy performance fabrics. By presenting textural comfort to the home, it allows for the ease of everyday life with a dash of finesse.”

 Midwest Landscape Industries will create and customize the landscaping for the Centerpiece Home, designing and building both the hardscape and landscape elements.

 “We have some exciting features for Home Show visitors at the Centerpiece Home, including a linear fire feature and putting green,” said Midwest Landscape Industries Design Build Manager Bryce Kruger. “Plus, there will be a pergola and outdoor kitchen along with special water features.”

 “This is an extra special year as the Indianapolis Home Show returns to the Indiana State Fairgrounds and Event Center for its 100th year,” said Home Show Manager Laura Groninger. “I’m so excited for Home Show visitors to check out what we’ve got planned — from vendors to home-focused experts and thousands of products to explore. Plus, the Centerpiece Home is always a main highlight of the show, and it’s going to ‘wow’ everyone who sees it.”

 The 2022 Indianapolis Home Show opens Friday, Jan. 21, and continues through Sunday, Jan. 30. Admission is $15 for adults and $3 for children ages 6 to 12. Deals: $2 off tickets purchased online and free admission for children 5 and younger.

Centerpiece Home Interior Creates a Modern Haven

TOB Design Firm brings home comfort with a dash of finesse

The mother-daughter trio from TOB Design Firm — Joy Perkins, Macara Carsley and Danielle Harris — is bringing their unique flair to this year’s Centerpiece Home interior. The aesthetic for the Leland floorplan from Fischer Homes is “modern haven.”

“We believe the details make the design, and the Leland home is dressed head to toe for the party,” Carsley said. “The furnishings command high-contrast movement fused by woven linens, sultry velvets and cozy performance fabrics.” According to Carsley, performance fabrics are very popular — they create a high-end feel but are still user-friendly for everyday living. 

“That way you can still have your white sectional, but you don’t have to be so delicate with it,” she said. “And by presenting that textural comfort to the home, it allows for the ease of everyday life with a dash of finesse.” Throughout the Centerpiece Home, visitors will notice high-contrast tones with shades of earth, making it a modern home interior complemented by neutral colors that reflect a cozier theme. 

“First impressions are everything, and there are some definite memory points in this Centerpiece Home, including floating cedar shelves in the kitchen and the shiplap fireplace,” she said. “We have flat-panel cabinets throughout the home that appeal to a broad spectrum of people, but then there are details like custom stone cocktail tables that are almost like art pieces and are major focal points as well.” Other highlight pieces include several custom murals, three chandeliers in the great room and a hot pink acrylic vanity in the girl’s room.

“From wood beams on the great room ceiling to black cabinets with gold hardware and gold fixtures, this home has plenty of architectural details that have given us the chance to get creative while bringing design and harmony to each space.”

TOB Design Firm is a nationally-recognized and award-winning full-service design center with a vast variety of furniture, fabrics and accessory vendors. In 1986, Danny and Joy Perkins opened their first furniture and design firm, Touch of Brass, in Florence, Ky. Their daughters, Danielle and Macara, joined the business after graduating from college, and, 36 years later, the business is stronger than ever.

Centerpiece Home Landscaping Serves Slice of Americana

Midwest Landscape Industries creates backyard of any family’s dreams

For the landscaping surrounding this year’s Centerpiece Home, Midwest Landscape Industries is serving up a slice of Americana, with outdoor features worthy of any family’s dreams. 

“We have some exciting features for Home Show visitors, including a linear fire feature and putting green,” said Midwest Landscape Industries Design Build Manager Bryce Kruger. “Plus, there will be a pergola and outdoor kitchen along with special water features.”

One of the first features visitors will see is a patch of artificial turf with an autonomous lawnmower running as a stand-in for the dad of the house. 

Tucked away in a corner between evergreens, ornamentals and perennials is a secret garden with a fireboulder centered on a crushed gravel patio. On the opposite end of the garden is a synthetic putting green. 

Of course, the big backyard feature is the pool, which is complete with spillways. Nearby is a countertop fire pit table. 

The last major feature is a dining/lounging space under a pergola with green walls and a TV wall. This area also includes an outdoor kitchen with another green wall for added texture. Large caliper trees and planters surround the area. 

“The landscaping is a good representation of our company’s many capabilities,” Kruger said. “These are some of the wonderful outdoor living spaces we can create.”
