4. Minimal Goods

The epitome of keeping it simple, Minimal Goods is, well, exactly that. Posting a range of stunning images, the common theme is understated simplicity – whether that be low-key light fittings or a clean furniture frame. As fans of pared back detailing ourselves, we’re firm followers.

5. Details Furniture

In a similar vein, Details Furniture celebrates the big impact that can be achieved with small finesse. In our own pieces, the arm and leg detailing is hugely important to the overall design, and this Instagram account is dedicated to highlighting what arguably makes a brand’s identity unmistakably theirs.

7. Studio Flock

A rainbow of creativity is perhaps the most accurate way to summarise Studio Flock’s feed. Supporting young artists and graduate designers in producing “bright and beautiful textiles for interiors,” you may have spotted the colourful cloth at Liberty, Heals or John Lewis – all stockists of the brand. On the Studio Flock account, you can expect to find a mixture of products, travel snaps and, sometimes, if you’re lucky, Nelson the sausage dog.

8. Craftyourspace

Moving from artisan to aspirational, the architectural projects featured on Craftyourspace are something straight out of Grand Designs. Sprawling wooden lodges in leaf filled forests, airy lofts with high-ceilings and wall-to-wall windows overlooking snowy scenes. OK, this might not be your everyday, but one can dream can’t they?
