FAQ

As Denver transitions to a major metropolitan area, The IDC Building concept was born to rival the showroom advancements and investments being made in other major U.S. cities. The functional elements of the building were refined through conversations with some of the leading designers, builders, and architects in the Colorado community. They expressed a need for convenience– a centralized space with an incredible collection of showrooms and products, where homeowners and designers can gather, shop and be inspired.

Similar to the Denver Design District, IDC is a collection of showrooms, but instead of following a traditional mall-style layout, IDC was designed with an innovative open-floor plan that provides visitors with an interactive shopping experience. Throughout the building, visitors are encouraged to touch, feel, be inspired, and experience how products will look and work in their own homes. Showrooms in The IDC Building are focused primarily on materials specified during the construction phase, while many showrooms in the Denver Design District are focused on soft goods.

Yes. The IDC Building was designed with a focus on the homeowner and we welcome and encourage the public to visit. There is no need to be accompanied by a member of the trade to shop at the IDC.

IDC was designed as an open-floor plan so visitors can browse through the showrooms, much like they would at a department store. Each showroom will offer visitors an interactive shopping experience to discover products for their home through functional displays showcasing the latest trends. Because all of the showrooms are independently operated, visitors will purchase from and work directly with each showroom and are encouraged to bring their designers, builders, and architects to help with the buying process.

The IDC Building’s showrooms offer unparalleled value to both trade professionals and the public. Each showroom recognizes this value, and constructs their own pricing policies. If you have questions regarding an individual showroom’s policies, please contact them directly.
