Instagram has become many an interior designer’s best friend. Rather than having to wait monthly or quarterly to display their most exciting new projects, designers showcase them immediately—and oftentimes throughout the design process. There is an enormous number of designers you can choose to follow on social media, so it’s impossible to keep up with everyone. But these 10 pages are a great place to start.

Mark Sikes (@markdsikes)
