Behind one interior design project, there exist several stakeholders – designers, manufacturers, photographers, suppliers, contractors, the list goes on. Building the dream team is always the goal, but until that happens – everyone is always looking for the perfect match through trial and error. Sometimes, connections are made through referrals and sometimes a strong marketing campaign can bring two seemingly like-minded entities together. However, now, there exists a more thoughtful and intent-driven way to go about this process.
Love That Design, a media platform, whose aim is to showcase related products and projects in a seamless manner – has come up with a shortlisting tool that can bridge the gap and present seekers with an unbiased list of interior service providers with just a few clicks. The source data for this list has been generated from Love That Design’s existing database of projects and products.
