Community and Boston, Design Inspiration, Designers
A couple of years ago I worked on a Design Home in Cohasset. Circle Furniture was designing the master bedroom, living room and dining room, using furniture designed by Candice Olson. The project was labor intensive, but boy did we have fun. Why, you ask? Candice. We are lucky enough to sell a line of furniture designed by Candice Olson.

I've tried all different layouts, never really feeling like I had found the golden ticket....or golden floor plan, as it were. This past April I had a revelation. I was sitting at a breakfast in High Point,…

Kate Springfield 10/30/2007  New England School of Art amp; Design graduate student Kate Springfield won a $2,000 scholarship in the Second Annual Montage/Arclinea Contemporary Design Scholarship Competition. The Design Scholarship Competition was established to encourage architecture and design students in New England to find innovative ways of incorporating contemporary design within the region’s traditional architecture. “It has definitely boosted my confidence, and it is something nice to have in your back pocket when it comes time to look for a job next year,” said Springfield, who finished in third place. Springfield is scheduled to graduate from the Master of Arts in Interior Design program in May 2008. She entered the competition along with several classmates, spending about two months to complete her project. “We all got to see each other’s…
