Rendering of new downtown Boston apartment tower designed by CBT

A recent post describes a new apartment tower designed by CBT, which has been approved to be built downtown. The creator of the site and author of the article, Gradon Tripp, describes the design as, "a tasteful- if not terribly awe-inspiring-design, and it will be a good addition to the downtown landscape."

Check out some reviews of nearby furniture and design stores. The latest review was a first visit to the new branch of Reside, located in the South End. The reviewer describes it as, "The space on Washington St. feels like a perfect fit for all of the twentieth century modern furniture and accessories." Go take a visit to the store and snap some pictures of your favorite items. You could use them on an inspiration board for a project, or even better, your own place!
