Showrooms and design centres

Chelsea Harbour Design Centre >>

"Chelsea Harbour Design Centre is the permanent European trade centre for the Interior Design industry specialising in fabrics, furnishing accessories and furniture."

The home of London's prestigious design centre on the Internet. This site is a useful reference resource but is clearly no substitute for a visit to the Design Centre itself. The numerous showrooms exhibit fabrics of all types and of the highest quality, including printed, oriental, furnishing, contempory and classical original fabrics. The list of designers is endless and while the web site does not allow you to browse through product catalogues it does list the designers featured in each of the following showroom categories: fabrics, furniture, trimmings, decorative accessories, wall coverings, lighting and floor coverings.

The World of Interiors >>

A site that, like the magazine, is stylish in design and content and well worth a look if you have a sizeable budget and indulgent tastes! In order to use many of the features of The World of Interiors site you will need to register. This is a simple process and is completely free of charge. Once signed up, the Design Studio has a range of useful services to offer. Our favourite is the Swatchboard section which is an interactive 'fabric and wallpaper finder'.
Style Revolution >>

Style Revolution is part of and claims to be the top interiors magazine on the web. Articles are categorised by room type, e.g. bedroom, kitchens, dining rooms, etc., and focus on explaing different fashions/styles and techniques. The site also has a section dedicated to specific UK designers, a selection of celebrity features, craft and DIY projects and planning advice.
Home and Design Magazine >>

An interiors magazine for the Washington, Maryland and Virginia areas. While this site is geographical restrictive, it has some interesting feature articles, shopping links, a supplier directory for the areas stated and an ask the expert section (although it appears you can't actually post your own questions!) >>

An e-zine offering a few regular features on interior design ideas and DIY Projects. Also offers a directory of websites and suppliers.
