SOWA Design Days


Join us for a day of inspiration in the flourishing SoWa Art + Design District. Sign up for engaging panel discussions and stop by the many participating showrooms and businesses. Open to trade professionals and design enthusiasts alike.

Presented by New England Home, Charles Spada Showroom, and GTI Properties.


This panel discussion will outline the process from the finished project to an editorial feature. What steps should design professionals take before pitching a project? What information do editors need in a pitch deck? How do you partner with a professional photographer or publicist?


Hosted by Ailanthus on Harrison, 500 Harrison Ave., Suite 2F

Excellence is worth the wait and true luxury is found in tailor-made pieces that stand the test of time. Top designers discuss their partnerships with workrooms, artisans, and craftspeople for furniture, fabric, and finishes.

Hosted by New England Home, SoWa Power Station, 550 Harrison Ave.

Instant gratification is the enemy of good design. Expert editing, careful curation, and trusting your designer are paramount. This panel discussion will examine the state of luxury design today and explore shifts in practice, for better or worse. How has the industry been influenced by key events, from the recession of 2008 to the present-day global pandemic? What does luxury mean to the next generation of homeowners and design professionals?

Hosted by Charles Spada Showroom, 500 Harrison Ave., Suite 101


Join us to celebrate a design collaboration between Hacin + Associates and Venegas and Company.

This Back Bay residence was featured in a web-exclusive Architectural Digest interview. David Hacin of Hacin + Associates will discuss the project’s concept and the role collaboration played in the home’s design and led to a second collaboration presently in the works in Atlanta!
