Looking for design inspiration? Look no further than Pinterest.

In case you’re not yet familiar, Pinterest is a blossoming new social platform that allows people to categorize and share (aka: pin) images that they like; be it from their own photo gallery or from a website that they were browsing. Initially intended for personal use, brands are now turning to Pinterest to upload and Pin images of their own projects and products but also to share other things that they love, admire, and are inspired by.

Particularly in the world of design, fashion, travel, food, and architecture, Pinterest is an invariable melting pot of inspiration.

Here are just a few brands who have started Pinning that you will want to watch:
