Looking for something different? That’s the specialty of the house at Indy House, a new boutique in the East Village.
There’s a new name in Des Moines’ Historic East Village: Indie House, a specialty furnishings and decor shop, carries everything from rugs to hats, all things that delight shopkeeper and design guru Julie Lyle. The name runs in the family—Lyle’s husband, Lou, operates Indie House Construction. Julie was trained in design and business at Iowa State and UC Berkley, and was helping clients with decor solutions long before opening her boutique.
“I knew in my mind exactly what I wanted to do,” Julie says. “Des Moines needed an independent home store with an artistic vibe.”
We have one now: Indie House stocks distinctive styles and brands not generally available locally or online, and customers visiting her shop can see other products on the store’s “browsing station,” a 42-inch monitor with exclusive links to browse products from her sources.
Indie House is located at 516 E. Grand Ave. and here on Facebook.
