We’ve come to know and love Design Public, and there’s certainly a lot to get familiar with. We could spend way too many on-the-clock hours meandering through the many nooks and crannies of its online inventory. This little site is a web all its own.
Not that Design Public is hard to navigate; quite the contrary, in fact. Whether you’re looking for a modern desk to give your home office a fashion-forward edge, some cool options for spiffing up your tabletop or looking to find a room- or wall-worthy coat rack, Design Public is undeniably your guy.
Say it’s a new, colorful rug you’re after. All you have to do is click on “Rugs” in the sidebar, and you’ll be directed to a page displaying which rug lines it carries. Let’s say you opt for “Angela Adams.” You’re then directed to a page of all Angela Adams floor covering. That’s where many a website would stop, but not these guys. You’ll also see that they’re wiling to entertain and inspire you with quirky scenarios and solutions, with articles and helpful customer testimonials.
We love their “shop by room” option, where re-decorating or new-home purchasers can see what’s available for every type of room in the house, like fun seating options for kids bedrooms and cool modern furniture for nurseries, as well as nightstands fit for Manhattan lofts.
Design Public has it all, without employing that typical, too-matchy, catalog-ish feel. It allows you to mix and match designers and color schemes, and encourages you along the way. As it says, “Be yourself. Discover. Learn. Create. Take an active role in personalizing your space and be happy dwelling in it. We get a thrill in helping you along your journey.”
Though some of it’s the kind of stuff you have to really save up for, we get a thrill from Design Public, too.
