brown beige faux leather upholstery on this unusually designed modern leather-based chair design.
I was searching the net for some information on black velvet upholstery when I came across this interestingly upholstered velvet chair.
Nice image from attic-mag.
Not sure if you can buy that wallpaper however 😉
We’d like to share a little free love with Interior Designers.
We’ve already had over 56,000 Interior Design visitors this year and if you, as an interior designer, would like to talk about your services or your website/blog then we will gladly display something you want to write about. No interior design subject is off-limits although please bear in mind we have our own fabric collections so ideally you won’t go overboard with competitors’ products…our love is free and almost boundless but limited nevertheless!!
Ideally you will use a striking image for the best impact and you can link back to specific projects or content on your own site. (We won’t charge you anything…love is free).
Your thoughts will be shown here: https://www.kothea.com/category/re-blogs/thoughtful-musing-from-interior-designers/
Verity and the team
We’ve scoured the net to find and list the sites we know and love. Some you already know, some you will love once you see them for the first time. Either way enjoy the depth and variety of the information on our industry and don’t forget to see which ones are voted as the ‘best’ at the end of this article – you can vote for your favourite too.
These are all sites that might be useful for interior designers rather than ones created by interior designers (or their suppliers) to promote their business. Maybe they provide a nice showcase or perhaps just a tad of inspiration in a seemingly never-ending sea of banality. Enjoy!

A big thank you to Kiki for our nomination for the Inspiring Blog Award. It’s always great to know that we are reaching out to new generations of Interior Designers.
Following the rules of this award, I have to tell you a little bit about myself.
1. Many years ago I danced with Brad Pitt. Well; I was in the same nightclub and I sort of manoeuvred myself into his general vicinity. That counts right?
2. One of my scariest moments is travelling at over 230kmh in a sports car. I wasn’t driving (luckily someone else was) and you will be relieved to know that we were on a race track.
3. I inadvertently inherited a collection of 1980s vinyl ‘LP’ covers. After years of sitting in a box, I discovered that when framed then made a great art installation next to my work area at home.
4. The first paint I chose was for my own bedroom. Dark green. Hmmm.
5. I like people, dogs and cats. In that order.
6. Most interesting party venues: On a rooftop in Manhattan and some bizarre, mostly uninhabited, island somewhere near Comodo that even now I can’t quite remember the name of.
7. Most stupid question, “Do you like chocolate?”
Inspirational Blogs (I’d like to nominate!): Here are some that I enjoy:
There are a few rules to accepting this blog award…
