Behind the Design

Explore the New Showrooms at the Boston Design Center

Known as New England’s premier design destination, the Boston Design Center just got a little bit bigger with the addition of several stylish, much-awaited new showrooms. Brown Jordan, Pierre FreyAnees Furniture & Design, and Holly Hunt have opened at the BDC—with Surya coming in the fall and Circa Lighting by year's end—adding to the more than 1,200 brands represented in the building. Get to know a little bit more about the new showrooms and their offerings and make your plans to visit.


Created in 1945, Brown Jordan embraced the Post-War spirit of leisure time in developing beautiful, high-quality outdoor furniture. With collections of dining chairs, tables, outdoor sofas, chaises, and more, the brand is known for celebrating all things outdoors. They believe in an “effortlessly beautiful and impeccably designed” way of living - the Good Life.

Founded just over 20 years ago, Anees Upholstery began as one of Chicago’s foremost custom furniture makers, developing pieces for both the trade and residential clients. Today, Anees Furniture & Design remains a family-owned and operated business, creating personalized, top-of-the-line custom furniture for a wide array of clients around the country.

Founded in 1935, the House of Pierre Frey is known for creating the world’s finest upholstery fabrics. Drawing inspiration from French history as well as cultures around the world, the brand is a go-to for unique, eclectic, colorful fabrics. Several years ago, Pierre Frey expanded their offerings to include wallcoverings, custom rugs, and furniture, all in line with the brand’s unique ethos.

With a foundation as a successful rug company, Surya is now known for running the gamut of products, creating everything from pillows to wall decor and furniture to lighting. They have over 60,000 products, with a presence in every major market, and will be opening at the BDC in the fall. They’re also well known for their successful partnerships with major names in the interiors space, including Candice Olson, Sunbrella, and Elle Decor.

Opening at the Boston Design Center at the end of 2019, Circa Lighting will soon be bringing their signature style to New England. Founded by Visual Comfort alum Gale Singer in 1998, Circa's aim is to simplify the lighting selection process to a well-curated selection of the very best. Today, Circa continues to be the premier distributor of Visual Comfort products along with a small collection of other hand-picked manufacturers.
