The Indianapolis Home Show

The Indianapolis Home Show was definitely better this year than last year. I actually ended up going twice: once on the weekend with friends when it was super crowded, and once on a weekday with Aaron when it was almost empty.

I felt that a lot of the smaller, less relevant booths were grouped together in an auxiliary pavilion, making the main pavilion more interesting. We saw some cool ideas, nice products, and the feature home was lovely. The master bedroom was especially impressive.
The feature home also made a shallow platform in their media room, which we might consider making in our basement game room
One company featured lighted tiles in a weave pattern.
Another company constructed a massive outdoor room using a covered, angled pergola.
One of my favorite features was an above ground pool with a patio and landscaping build up along the edge. The pool felt integrated into the landscape even though it was above ground. I'm sure that this was more motivated by the constraints of the home show, but I thought it was a great idea for a pool all the same.
