Shopping Trip: Twelve Chairs

Today, one of the few days I’ve had any time recently, I ventured down to Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood to stop in at the new home furnishings shop and design studio, Twelve Chairs.  The business is a collaborative effort from two 27-year-old interior designers who met at Cornell, Roisin and Miggy. Roisin, who’s from the area, worked at a commercial architecture firm and did a stint at Koo de Kir in Beacon Hill two learn the retail side of things. Miggy, who’s from New York, worked in operations for the Anthropologie in Rockefeller Center in New York City. The pair stock the sun-filled loft space with pieces from small artisans, with a focus on sustainable methods and materials. They also offer design services.

  1. I got to do a story on Twelve Chairs for the Metro, and not only is the store amazing, Roisin and Miggy were to of the nicest shop keeps I’ve ever met!

  2. Hey Marni!

    It’s such a small world. I’m the display coordinator at the Natick Anthropologie store, and you and I talked for a bit the other day while my coworker and I were working on the front window. I have an installation at Twelve Chairs now, and will be doing more soon. I love Miggy and Roisin! Their taste is amazing, and they are just sweethearts. Anyway, I have been working on a lot of my own freelance work outside of Anthro lately, so you should definitely stop by Twelve Chairs again and see the install in their stairway!

    Hopefully we cross paths soon!

    1. Hi Christina, That is a coincidence. Crazy! If I am down that way I will check it out, and your site too. I talked to the other editor at about our Anthro display video. We’ll be running it in a couple of weeks along with a gallery of photos of windows in progress. We’ll probably put in the one you did. So great to meet you. Keep in touch!

Let's talk style.
