Working With A Designer

Working With A Designer

Have you always wondered how to shop the home furnishings at the Boston Design Center? The BDC welcomes the public to pair with one of our 15 Designer on Call designers to shop all the building has to offer. Every Monday through Friday (excluding building closings), from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., a Designer on Call representative will be seated in the lobby to assist new BDC customers. If the designer is not immediately available, please check with the front desk.

The public is always welcome to browse the showrooms, but we ask that you pair with a designer to shop the trade showroom furnishings. Our Designer on Call designers offer a complimentary hour of consultation, and after that a capped individual hourly rate will apply (the designer on duty will explain the rate structure before engaging services).

The 2016 Designer on Call program launched on the first of November. Below is a list of all the designers who will be part of the 2016 Designer On Call program. These will soon be listed, along with schedules and contact information, on the website. For more information, email designeroncall@bostondesign.com.
