It's hard to stand inside a Godby Home Furnishings showroom. Comfy couches, chairs, and beds wait around every turn inside the store. Each visit showcases furnishings for several areas of the home, including living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms. A look at the item tags in any of these sections reads like a who's who of the home furnishing world—names like Flexsteel , La-Z-Boy, Serta, and Tempurpedic among many more. The Carmel location is open despite the closure of US 31.
The Godby family has curated these fine furnishings since 1974, when Jim Godby founded the first location. After coming aboard in 1992, Jim's son Jeff oversaw the company's expansion into a modern day furniture empire that rivals the ionic column emporiums of Rome. At the center of it all lies the Godby Home Furnishings 75,000 sq. ft. warehouse, which stocks all the furniture on display in each showroom. In total, about eight million dollars of inventory fills the warehouse—but sometimes that's not even enough. In those cases, Godby's team happily places a custom order for their customers.

A clean-cut man enters your house. He's wearing a pressed red shirt, crisp khaki pants, and red shoe covers on his feet. He places a small red mat onto the ground, preventing his tool bag from crimping or scuffing your carpet, hardwood floor, or indoor boxing ring. He hails from Service Plus Heating and Air Conditioning, whose professional technicians travel throughout the greater Indianapolis area to diagnose and treat problems with plumbing, heating, and cooling systems. Since starting the company in 2002 with just one service vehicle, Chris and Emily Cunningham have expanded their fleet to 14 trucks fully equipped to replace or repair virtually any HVAC unit, detect leaks, unclog faulty plumbing, or tune up almost any system. After scheduling an appointment online, customers receive a picture and brief bio of their assigned technician so they know exactly whom to expect.
