A MESSAGE FROM JAMESTOWN PRESIDENT
MICHAEL PHILLIPS This spring heralds a new era at the Innovation and Design Building. The muchanticipated, ground floor repositioning project nears completion—ushering in a new way of shopping at the Boston Design Center. Establishing the Boston Design Center as the definitive destination for shopping and sourcing the very best that design has to offer has been our goal from day one. Along with reimagining the promenade, we’ve worked tirelessly to identify culinary partners that fit our vision. The containers continue to thrive and have gone a long way in providing casual, on-the-go gourmet food options. However, we have always planned to include a more formal option. We are pleased welcome Chickadee, the first restaurant from Chef John daSilva and Ted Kilpatrick. Named after the state bird of Massachusetts, Chickadee will serve a seasonal menu highlighting ingredients from New England farms, markets, and producers. Chickadee will be open for lunch and dinner and will boast a full bar and beverage program comprised of a thoughtfully curated wine list, a carefully sourced beer selection, and a strong cocktail program that will draw inspiration from the kitchen. Two new food-favorite containers have been added for more casual options: Munch Mobile and Fare Well. We hope you will come out and enjoy lunch or dinner while the shopping the promenade and visiting our showrooms at the Boston Design Center. We’re also pleased to have hosted the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum’s 2017 National Design Awards. Cooper Hewitt Director Caroline Baumann introduced a lively conversation with Matilda McQuaid, Deputy Curatorial Director and Head of Textiles, and this year’s award winners. Join us in congratulating: •
Craig L. Wilkins, architect, academic, and author (Design Mind Award)
Alan Ricks, Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer, MASS Design Group (Architecture Design Award)
Deborah Berke, Partner Deborah Burke Partners (Interior Design Award)
