Since 1776, Philadelphia has been the home of the builders and the craftsmen, the thinkers and the tinkers. It’s where ideas and innovation collided to create the heart of the nation. Born from this spirit, a new heart has risen in Old City…the Philadelphia Design District. From Second and Third Street to Market and Race, this eclectic community of shops, boutiques and bistros is a collective community presenting the best in creativity and design in a vibrant and dynamic neighborhood.
The Philadelphia Design District is where the collaboration of ideas and services have enlivened and transformed this enclave of “Old City” into a vibrant destination for residents and visitors. It is a place where a Minotti sofa, a Nakashima wood chair, modern European outdoor furniture, handmade local ceramics, modern and Persian rugs, and ceramics and sculpture from artists like Roberto Lugo and Gregory Nangle can all be found in one neighborhood. This is the newest destination for home design and shopping, right in the new heart of “Old City”.
