Mydeco - I Am Hooked

Go and get a cuppa and sit down for a while, read this and follow the links. You will be amazed and delighted.

Mydeco was created a year ago by Brent Hoberman and Martha Lane-Fox of Lastminute.com fame. It has the top design names like Terence Conran and Phillipe Starck on the Design Board.

My Lace Moodboard

In fact I sell my Ghost Furniture on Mydeco. Above is a Moodboard which contains my furniture and others which I created on Mydeco.
750 other shops are on there so you aren't short of products to use. The big high street names, niche retailers and indie designers.

It even automatically shows all the products you have chosen, ready to buy or just read the info. How clever is that? Other people use my Ghost Furniture pieces on their Moodboards and I love to see what they do with them.
I can see if anyone has used a piece by viewing the product info which tells me and others if it has been used in a room and even provides a link to that room.

My Absolute Glamour Moodboard

Creating Moodboards becomes addictive and you can use them on your blogs (just mention Mydeco, that would be nice).

You can search for products by price, colour, supplier, look and others just to numerous to mention.

My Looks Can Deceive Moodboard

What I love most about these people is that they aren't precious about the images you use. You can upload your own and the whole process is amazingly simple and I have to say much easier to use than Photoshop or the equivalent.

My Green Cuisine Moodboard

You can even upload photos of rooms in your own home and they will render them ready for you to place furniture, wallpaper and whatever you choose into them. You can view the room from various angles even as a floor plan. It is just to clever for words.

Just had to pop this one in. The staff were so excited about it snowing in London last week they rushed into Hyde Park and built a Snofa and it's pretty stylish don't you think?
If you get involved they really do appreciate it and will showcase you. I am not only on their pages as a designer but because I get involved in a blogging section. Yes they even have loads of people blogging on there. Such as people renovating old buildings in France and blogging their progress.

I am part of the Design Boutique section of the site which is full of small, innovative designers and it is a great place to showcase your designs.
I have been selling on Mydeco for a while now and have found it difficult to tell you all about it in a concise and informative way so they even helped me with that by providing me with a document called Mydeco in a Nutshell.
It's all too good to be true but it is true and I LOVE IT!

This sounds wonderful - I'll have to play with it a bit to figure it all out

I have spotted your stuff on mydeco - I registered with them ages ago. Fun. Pity the products are not available to me sitting at the tip of Africa but still plenty of inspiration!

Cool! Love your moodboard, but that Ghost furniture would look good anywhere!
