If you visit the third floor of the Dr. Pepper Building of Pepper Place, you’ll encounter quite the hub for interior designers, architects, and textile designers…and it likely means you closed your exercise ring climbing all those stairs!

There have been some exciting recent updates and a few new tenant additions to the 3rd floor of the Dr. Pepper Building. It’s always exciting to welcome new businesses to the Pepper Place community, but it’s also very cool to see an unofficial mini design district take shape all on one floor. The third floor boasts many talented professionals in the design and architecture industry, including Meredith Sherrill, James B. Laughlin, and Caroline Gidiere–just to name a few.
