About est

Inspired by first-hand industry experience and a passion for sharing the world’s most beautiful homes, products and design resources, Est was conceived as a digital ‘little black book’ for design enthusiasts across the world. We believe that your home is your sanctuary and we want to inspire and guide your design process through the principles of store, share, save and shop.
