Douglas Design District


The Douglas Design District has over 300 locally owned businesses with an emphasis on design. We are pixelated, printed, fashioned, staged and thinking ahead. We are epicurean delights, theater, architects, interior designers, historic renovators and bred to be entrepreneurs. We are the youngest sibling in the Wichita family and have been given all the blueprints. Nobody saw us coming.

The Douglas Design District is a 3-mile stretch of authenticity, steeped in old-timey tradition and on the upside of the hill. We are full to the brim with electricity and we know our neighbors. The spark lives here.
