Architectural Digest Launches New Online Tool
If you're one of many homeowners considering a home makeover, rather than a move--good news for you, The bible of home design, Architectural Digest and the creators of 1stdibs.com have launched a new tool called "Shop AD" to help you out!
The VP/Publisher of Architectural Digest, Giulio Capua explains that, "We know that 70% of Architectural Digest readers are in the midst of some form of renovation right now. They might be garnering information, they might be ready to hire a designer or contractor, so Shop AD is the perfect complement to that process because it allows them the opportunity to gather information, to search products, and really have as much information that they need before they make their final decisions."
Accessible via shopad.net, this new site is full of advanced features. You can search more than 20,000 contemporary home furnishings. Furniture, lighting, flooring and wallcoverings and textiles from leading manufacturers. Search by product category, style, brand, designer, or even by showroom or store location. Shop AD also gives you the sharpest images and fabric swatches, detailed product information, and availability. An advanced "eye" tool transforms your search into a personal library where you can save products to folders customized by room. The eye tool also lets you expand your search to include antiques and mid-century design from 1stdibs.com making Shop AD a one-stop source for all of your design research, ideas and inspiration.
The Founder of 1stdibs.com, Michael Bruno tells us, "to make the site fun and useful to use, we have created a lot of searches that are categorically designed, so that if you're looking for a particular style like art deco or french 1940's...we edit and review the items and put them into a category that makes it fun and easy for you to go search across the entire site to say I want to see everything that's 1940's and its going to turn up all the lighting, all the tables and all the seating from that period."
Voila! Fresh ideas for your home, just a few clicks away.
