Tour 8,000 Square Feet of European Home Design on Boston’s Waterfront
Experience the latest trends in home design from Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria, and beyond without leaving Boston.

Here at Divine, Just a walk-through can be “world”-changing for both furniture enthusiasts and home renovators alike.
For both inquiring minds and home re-designs, the Divine showroom features floor to ceiling wardrobes affixed with motion-censored interior lights, glossy sliding doors, and smoke-y mirrors that turn to light (or rather clear) only to reveal one’s clothes behind.
In a similar fashion, modern kitchens with hydraulically ran, rising islands, induction cooktops and seamlessly installed, paneled dishwashers beckon clean lines, and visions of modern kitchen desires.
Additionally, Divine Design Center curates the total living concept with innovative materials found even in their showroom’s nod to the spa. For what interior is complete without attention to every detail? Bathtub included.
Whether one is looking for a set of dining room chairs, or to renovate their whole home, Divine provides their clients with any and all of the above.
