Dennis Duffy Segues Into Commercial Projects Residential Designer, Furniture Store Owner, and as of Late the Developer's Designer
Boston, MA, May 24, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Dennis Duffy, Principal of Duffy Design Group is creating inspiring residential interiors; his retail furnishings store D Scale is showing how modern and vintage furnishings can live comfortably among varied personal styles; and he is working with area developer's designing interiors that will make their projects appealing and saleable.
At the newly opened 45 Province, a 32-story full service luxury condominium tower located at the foot of Beacon Hill, Duffy designed one of the model suites. The model features a soaring 18-foot high space that commands spectacular city views. Duffy’s design highlights the vertical space with full height curtains and custom blue metal wall panels. The graphic area rug and strategically placed furnishings and artwork keep the scale of the room in check. Other major spaces being designed by Duffy Design Group include the elevator lobbies, library, media room, pool patio, health club, and dining room. "Our goal at 45 Province is to create sophisticated, contemporary spaces which reinforce the design intent established by the architects Bruner/Cott Associates," notes Duffy.
Archstone Avenir in the new Bulfinch Triangle is making luxurious city living affordable by offering rentals and leases of units featuring striking interior design by Duffy Design Group. Duffy has been part of a team working with Archstone and ICON Architecture to develop the building's design. The sales center was designed a few years ago and Duffy then proceeded with the building's overall interior design concept including selection of furnishings, fixtures and equipment. Over the next few months they will be installing furniture for the management leasing office, roof deck, lobby and second floor lounge.
When Archstone took over Northpoint, a mixed-use development straddling the Cambridge/Somerville line, they asked Duffy Design Group to design two model units. The models were installed and Duffy has since continued with furnishings and artwork for several of the common areas including the yoga room, massage room, upper elevator lobbies, pool patio and roof deck.
And at the well known Chandler Inn, a boutique hotel in Boston's hip and historic South End, Duffy designed the hotel's corridors and sixteen Boutique Guest rooms on the 4th and 5th floors. Duffy is currently working on designing the artwork for the building's exterior.
Throughout all of these projects Duffy Design Group takes pride in its allegiance to local vendors including furniture fabricators within Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and New York. "We keep it local as much as possible," says Duffy. His design expertise seems to be benefiting all of those involved with his teamwork approach.
