The IIDA New England Fashion Show is back for its 21st year! The MP team joined over two dozen talented teams from the NE chapter to battle it out on the runway in front of a full house and a livestream audience at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
About: Each year, New England’s best interior design firms and design schools team up with industry manufacturers to create and model one-of-a-kind fashions exclusively fabricated from tools of their trade – carpet, wallcoverings, tile, lighting and more! They compete for cheers, awards and bragging rights. It is one of the most amazing displays of creativity in the city, an unforgettable experience, and one of the hardest tickets to come by. This year, we are shaking things up as we embark on the third decade of IIDA NE Fashion Show. The theme of the show is “Portals” and each entry has been challenged with interpreting a mythical, fantasy world that has been assigned to them by the Fashion Show Committee. It’s sure to be an unforgettable and magical evening that will leave guests eager to return next year!

Thomson Place retail activation and streetscape project in Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood is LIVE! Developed by global real estate investment manager Invesco Real Estate and Crosspoint Associates, Inc., Margulies Perruzzi designed the restoration and repositioning of three historic buildings at 25, 44 and 50 Thomson Place, with new ground-floor retail space and a new pedestrian plaza to create a vibrant retail and dining destination.
This neighborhood once served as warehousing facilities, holding goods and product as it came off the ships in the seaport, and unloaded from horse-drawn carriages.
MP explored the history of these buildings when tasked with bringing these buildings to the new age – preserving their integrity and attracting retail and dining that align with the historic details and serve this vibrant and inspired neighborhood.
Stay tuned for our VIDEO PREMIER that takes you down Thomson Place and introduces you to what it looks like today!
For a repeat year, a team of Margulies Perruzzi colleagues and friends participated in “Fight United” on February 9th. We committed to participating in a 2-hour intense boxing conditioning training session as well as fundraise for a great cause. The United Way of Mass Bay runs a number of great programs specifically benefiting our local youth; the Fight United event is held to specifically support these programs. We completed the event and had 2 of the top 3 overall fundraisers as part of our team!
Caroline came to our office to help us make these kits for the Boys & Girls Club to learn about plant life cycle for Earth Day. Building Impact promotes a number of philanthropic activities, benefiting many outside organizations and underprivileged city communities, ranging from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education to providing encouraging letters and emergency paracord bracelets for US troops abroad. They really do a great service helping bridge the gap by bringing to us a variety of opportunities to help us give back. Additionally, their staff is beyond friendly and accommodating. We love working with Building Impact!
Margulies Perruzzi teamed up with Heading Home to help a mother and her son move from a shelter to a permanent situation. We got an understanding of what items they would need for their new apartment and purchased everything from pillows and picture frames to a TV stand, a new ceiling fan, and food to fill the kitchen. Our team went in on a Saturday morning and spent about 6 hours cleaning and decorating the apartment. Upon arrival the family was thrilled to see their new home!
