Home Fashion Resources

We identified seven home fashion resources: Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, Dering Hall, House Beautiful, Furniture Today, Influence.co, and Traditional Homes. The entire project is here.

Methodology

Our investigation began with a direct-inquiry into available industry resources offering insight into the home fashion space. This strategy yielded little to no information on thought leaders and influencers. We then expanded our parameters to include home fashion publications (e.g., magazines, newsletters, and blogs) and databases that could be used to identify influencers. This avenue yielded results in the form of publications detailing top influencers and thought leaders in the home fashion space. The individuals located were ones with remarkable publications concerning their thoughts and position on the home fashion industry.
