The kids are all grown up and moved out—now it’s time to make a change. Interior designer Kristen Rivoli worked with a couple looking to relocate from their large home in the suburbs to a condo downtown, helping them shed their more traditional furnishings in favor of more modern pieces. “They wanted to make a fresh start with a new attitude,” says Rivoli. “They had some antique pieces they wanted to mix in, so we made a smooth transition between styles that are both collected and comfortable.” Whether you’re upgrading your empty space or occupying a new one, here are a few perfect pieces from the Boston Design Center to tie your living room together.
