The Decorist e-design platform is shutting down

Over the past decade, there has been an explosion of start-ups offering interior design services online. Although the fledgling industry already has its share of successes, its recent history also suggests that success is certainly not guaranteed. Last week, Decorist became the latest design platform to disappear. On Monday, a company blog post announced that the platform is “no longer accepting new orders or reservations for our services.”

Those who have booked but not yet started a project with a designer on the platform are expected to be refunded within six to eight weeks. For those with an online project underway, Decorist’s chat function will go offline precisely once the clock strikes midnight on October 13, forcing users to request a refund or find a way to work with their designer. outside the platform. Shopping lists and design boards will also be inaccessible after October 12, though Decorist plans to give users the option to export them before the site shuts down.
