Design Notes is a celebration of our passion for authentic modern design. Covering everything from stories about midcentury modern masters to the emerging careers of today’s most interesting designers, this is the place to read about architecture, design, people and culture.
When Design Notes began in 1999, our founder, Rob Forbes, would travel somewhere new – Milan, Seattle, anywhere he could find good design, which was just about everywhere – and then write about it in his weekly newsletter. We converted that into
a blog in 2006 and have continued his tradition, but on a monthly basis (Gwendolyn would like a return to weekly, but that’s an ongoing debate).
If there’s something you’d like us to write about, just comment on one of our posts.
We love hearing about the world of design (and design from around the world).
