The 5 best interior design magazines
by Jacopo Menzani
As interior designers, our work feeds on visual stimuli. You have to like it. We spend most of our time studying pictures in books and magazines, both old and new. Or else, we’re burning our eyes out in front of a computer screen. In the last few years social media has exponentially increased the the flow of material available for consumption. We’re continuously subjected to ‘visual bulimia’: too much content, too many photos, too many videos. The ability to filter through it all content is fundamental.
So here’s my selection of excellent content-producers, both online and in print.
Apartamento Magazine is an exceptional printed publication. It provides incomparable content on interiors and home spaces. Their online content is some of the coolest to be found anywhere on the web.
The printed magazine is published every two years from its Barcelona headquarters.
Domus, Italy’s most important architecture magazine, hardly needs an introduction by yours truly. That said, however, the column entitled ‘Gli assoluti’ is not to be missed. It consistently proves to be a worthwhile and stimulating read. For every object (lamps, tables, chairs, couches, etc.), twenty exemplary, iconic, and timeless designs are selected.
