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.

Olan Mills Inc. provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to re-create the look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
