We Partied Like it was 1999 and also 1959, and 1969… well, you get the idea! The Decades of Design Summer Soiree was one for the books with fantastic costumes, festive beverages and fun decor.

The Summer Soiree was started in 2017 to be the summer block party of the Boston Design Center’s 6th floor. All the showrooms on the 6th floor worked together to create a fun and relaxed evening that stood apart from the typical design center events. We had so much fun last year, we decided to make it an annual event.

In the JF showroom, we represented to rockin’ 50’s complete with vintage record decorations, cat-eye glasses and even a soda shop with mini root beer floats.

Decades of Design_Lizzy Barrett-02628One of my favorite parts of this event is working with our charitable partners. This year we were fortunate enough to partner with Zumix, a phenomenal organization based in East Boston that empowers youth through music. The fantastic band in the hallways of the BDC at the event? Zumix grads – Matty and the Push Ups. Through the raffle prizes donated by each showroom, ZUmix was able to raise $1900.00 These funds will support full scholarships for 4 Zumix kids, ensuring they can take music classes at no cost for the coming year.

Plans are underway to make the 2019 Soiree even better, so stay tuned and in the meantime check out these great images from the party, taken by Lizzy Barret.

JF Shop – Craftsmen Not Assembly Lines

June 21, 2018


The word “quality” is chronically overused in today’s society. Everything is billed as being quality-made from quality materials. It’s easy to become hardened to the term, it means less every time you hear it. I am guilty of being a little overzealous with the Q word myself as I describe Jewett Farms + Co. So it occurred to me that maybe it was time to take a step back and show all you nice people out there on the internet exactly why I will probably continue to over-use the word “quality”.
