Top 10 Design Websites – Friday Afternoon Fun

A little bit of design fun for a Friday afternoon, designed to give you
something to talk about when socialising after work.

Here are what are “probably” July’s Top 10 Interior Design Websites – in reverse order.

10. IKEA HACKER

Someone really  has got too much time on their hands as they buy and
then modify many of the IKEA staples.

9. ain’t no disco

At number 9 a much more serious site covering some far from run-of-the-mill
office interiors.


http://www.aintnodisco.com

8. mydeco

Despite daring to release an unfinished ‘beta’ web site, mydeco give a
creditable room planning tool on their site.

7. ACRHITONIC

We would probably prefer the RIBA Product Selector as the tool of product
choice for architects however ARCHITRONIC deliver a packed online library for
designers and architects.

6. INTERIOR DESIGN

The font is a bit similar to World Of interiors I know. Anyway the originally
named INTERIOR DESIGN website does provide a wealth of opinion and sources.

5. getdecorating

A genuinely good source for inspiration in decoration. Although for a more
comprehensive product list we always recommend The House Directory.

4. miraentuinterior

If you like vinyl then look no further.

3. apartment therapy

They aim to be ‘saving the world, one room at a time’. It might take quite a
while.

2. de zeen design magazine

Continuing the trend for organisations that avoid using capital letters in
their names wherever possible, de zeen design magazine stylishly delivers a
wealth of interiors news.

1. Wallpaper*

A great lifestyle magazine we would all agree. Have a look to see if their
online presence is as good as the paper version. And what is that asterisk (*) for anyway? For fabrics we would recommend World Of Interiors.
