Best of Boston Home 2010 Classic Designer
341 Commonwealth Ave.
It’s not easy to find an interior designer who can achieve just the right balance of gorgeous, textured, retro, ancient, and brand-new. How fortunate for Boston, then, that Jeffrey Delvy opened his own firm in 2007. Trained as an architect, Delvy decided to focus his design skills on the decorative arts rather than on construction. His style melds modern opulence with a solid classical backbone. Indeed, few designers can mix a 1970s velour sofa with ancient Chinese silk panels and a zebra-print art deco chair as deftly.
