Our resources for interior designers are designed to help, educate, connect, inspire and/or amuse you. We are always adding new ones, so you never know what you might find that will make your career, business or next project that much better or your next client or employer that much happier. If you think we’re missing something, then give us a shout.
Disclaimer: We can’t keep track of every little change on all these websites, so if one of them becomes lewd, crude, or socially unacceptable, don’t blame us. But for Heaven’s sake please TELL us so we can do something about it, like enjoy it…before we remove it, of course. One more thing our lawyers told us to say: We’re not endorsing any of these guys – we’re just letting you know they exist. If you get into a rumble with one of them, don’t come crying to us. Caveat emptor, baby.
