Editors’ Choice: Best Interior Design Projects of 2023

Dec. 18, 2023
Here is our list of favorite design projects published in i+s during the past 12 months—and why we loved them.

We wanted to provide a little retrospective about the work we ultimately decided to feature throughout this year, as we’re often asked: “What do you look for in a project?” And the answer is simple:
Something we’ve never seen before—which, admittedly, as the years go on gets harder and harder to find. 

Each of us chose our favorites from the 2023 issues and here we outlined where we found those sparks of originality, and some of the products and materials that made them happen.
