Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Furniture Corner In Cambridge

Crate and Barrel at Furniture Corner in CambridgeBusy real estate buyers in Cambridge have always had easy,  one-stop shopping options for furniture for their new Cambridge home.  Just outside Harvard Square, on Mass Ave heading towards Central Square, the intersection dubbed “Furniture Corner” has provided a number of shopping venues for Cambridge homeowners.

Located at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue, Trowbridge Street, and Putnam Avenue, Furniture Corner seems to be in transition.  Even before the rough patch in the economy, several furniture stores had closed shop.  I can’t remember what furniture store occupied the highly visible storefront at the corner of Putnam Ave. but the space now houses an architectural firm. The Cambridge Pottery Barn and Hold Everything are long gone. Home Design’s storefront is empty and for lease.  Longtime favorite Bowl and Board has left Furniture Corner Store ClosingCambridge for Davis Square leaving a large hole in the retail landscape on Mass Ave. 

Other stores are capitalizing on the opportunity to move into new space across or down the street from their current locations.  Heartwood has moved across the street to its new digs at 1008 Mass Ave.  Sleep-a-Rama has moved down the street.

Though the huge 50% off sale signs posted at City Schemes recently gave me pause, there are still a good number of furniture stores at the corner.  Crate and Barrel may have left Harvard Square but Crate and Barrel Furniture is still at the corner of Trowbridge Street.  Looking for modern furniture and accessories? Design Within Reach is ensconced at Furniture Corner. One of my favorites – and a great source for custom desktops and tables – the Door Store is going strong, just up Mass Ave towards Central Square. Several other furniture stores add to the mix at Furniture Corner.

Just moved into your new place in Cambridge?  Furniture Corner may be just the ticket.
