Boston Design Center is a progressive, all-inclusive design resource that is quickly becoming a leader in a fast-changing industry. We're expanding beyond the traditional design-trade-only model to embrace technology, improve consumer access, co-locate with related industries, and provide on-site manufacturing, event space, and innovative programming. The Innovation and Design Building and its anchor, Boston Design Center, are steadily attracting Boston's brightest designers, skilled makers, specialty manufacturers, and home and contract furnishings.
Boston Design Center is open to all. Visitors can browse all showrooms and purchase directly from ground floor showrooms Ann Sacks and Waterworks, however we ask that you pair with a designer before purchasing from trade showrooms. We have professional designers available on site; visit the Designer on Call page for details.
Our online directory is the most up-to-date reference guide for showrooms, manufacturers, and new product lines. The Boston Design Center produces a printed directory of the building each year. Copies are available at the front desk and throughout the Design Center common areas. Please note that the information listed in the printed directory may not be up to date; view the information below for the most current showroom listings.
