This idea had been brewing in my mind for over a year. As I attended all these wonderful conferences across the country I was continually meeting Boston designers and wondering why I was not meeting them at home? So I set out to create an event where designers could meet the friends they talk to daily on Twitter in real life and I have to say it was one wonderful evening! The fabulous Miggy and Roisin of Twelve Chairs offered up their creative space as our first gathering spot and acted as my partners in event planning! The local luxury magazine Perspective New England offered to be our sponsor for the night and we can't thank Jennifer enough!
Catching up with Yvonne Blacker and Erika of Radiant Republic
Katie Rosenfeld, Rachel Reider and Leslie Fine Twitter friends meeting for the first time!
We had an amazing turn out and as you can see people got comfy in the amazing Cisco Sofas scattered about the showroom!

We plan to have @Studio140Boston events as the seasons change, if you would like to be added to the email list just send me a note firstname.lastname@example.org and follow us on Twitter!
Thanks to all the local designers, writers, manufacturers and photographers who attended! It's all of you who make our local design community amazing! We hope to see you at the next event!
