Style on the Go!

Designdot started as a simple design service. Long before we even had a website or an Instagram, or a Facebook page, clients heard about us via word of mouth. Since the digital revolution, the world has changed. Rather than going against the tide, at Designdot, we decided to ride the wave. Our team realized that it’s convenient for our customers to visit our social media accounts and learn about different design styles. Instead of making an appointment and showing up to a design office, they can now see our interior design portfolio online.

Our services are special because, we as professionals know where to go to get the best resources. Luxury of design is the service, our clients never have to do any running around. We work with you on your time. Together we’ll create the perfect home, office, or living space. We can digitally take you on a tour using 3D renderings, Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram. There’s no need to get stressed out because you can see what we design from your desktop or mobile phone. It’s all within arms reach.

We’ve teamed up with some of the top interior design retailers to offer products using e-commerce. Come discover new interior trends with us. See what suits your needs and style from the comfort of your own home. Let’s move forward together and design!
