Handily, Boston Design Week coincides with the time of year when many people move into new homes or, after a shut-in winter, ache to reimagine their living space. One event, Crafting an Environment, at New England-founded furniture maker Thos. Moser’s Boston showroom, offers a look into some of the basic tenets of design via a panel discussion featuring several Boston-based designers.
