Editor’s Miscellany: Convenient Conjunction
September 15, 2011
I posted here four weeks ago about the winners of this year’s 5 Under 40 awards. Well, as it happens, this week sees a fortuitous coincidence in that regard.
First, the much-anticipated 5 Under 40 awards party is TONIGHT (Thursday, September 15, 2011) from 6:30â€“9:30 p.m., at the Galleria at 333 Stuart Street in Boston. (For you Boston style intimates, that’s the tall glass atrium near Park Square, bounded on its four corners by Davio’s, Landry & Arcari, Montage, and Marcoz Antiques.)
Please join us for drinks, small plates, a charity auction of rugs designed by this year’s honorees, and lots of fun hobnobbing with the cream of New England’s design community. Advance $35 tickets are available until noon at (800) 609-5154, ext. 703. After noon, tickets will be $45 at the door, cash only.

Billed as â€œBoston’s first boutique shared office space,â€ Oficio is located on the third floor at 30 Newbury Street in Boston. The concept, developed by Yadollahpour and co-founder Charlie Weisman, is to offer a stylish, efficient, fully equipped alternative for remote workers torn between the isolation of laboring at home and the chaos of a more public wi-fi hotspot like Starbucks.
The new space’s clean, light-filled loft aesthetic promises, to my eye, a pleasant atmosphere in which to undertake your chosen toil. To find out more, visit www.myoficio.com.
