Top Design Boards on Pinterest

For designers, artists, and virtual hoarders, Pinterest is the perfect website for whiling away hours. The site allows users to curate images on virtual inspiration boards organized by subjects the user chooses. Users, referred to as "pinners," can share boards and images with others. In the past two-and-a-half years, Pinterest has grown from a small start-up to bustling online destination. Although occasionally abused by an inordinate amount of images of baby animal memes and wedding dresses, it has become a valuable resource for inspiration and new products. We investigated the popular pinners in modern architecture and design and picked some of our favorites to share with you.
