Boston

21 tours

The capital city of Massachusetts is known for its Old World architecture, cobblestone streets and New England charm. Our Boston projects respect the city’s history while adding a modern twist with updated design ideas and fresh understandings of what our clientele needs. Whether it’s your townhouse in Beacon Hill, first post-college apartment or your office that needs some help, our designers have you covered (and won’t make you throw out your Red Sox flag). Your SOWA flea market and Lekker Home finds deserve to be properly displayed not hidden away until you can figure out what to do with them.
