Today’s global design scene is more expansive and easier to access than ever, thanks to all things Internet—websites, webshops, and an international brigade of bloggers.

Online design writers do more than recycle content: They’re often the first to suss out new talent and forecast burgeoning trends. In the age of point, click, and post, intelligence can be disseminated within seconds, and we rely on these quick-draw tastemakers to sort through the clutter and surface the good stuff. We asked 5 of our favorite web surfers to share their favorite webshops with us.
