Founded by Tom Mallory and Adel Zakout, Clippings enables the visitor to browse, save and purchase home products in the tradition of clipping images out of design magazines with scissors. Clippings and its affiliate sites have built a registered user base of 200,000 and offer more than the same number of products.

‘When we first came up with the idea for Clippings.com, our aim was primarily to create a vibrant marketplace where talented designers could connect with design-conscious users," said Mallory. "We believe that Clippings.com is the ultimate home magazine & reference point for those who work in the industry and for those who just have a passion for creating beautiful homes."

Zakout studied Architecture at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London and was founder of Creative Agency Despark.com where he was able to pursue his love for the Internet.

Mallory studied Architecture, and Film & Screenwriting, while also working on creative start-ups in his spare time. The son of an architect, he grew up surrounded by beautiful furniture and spaces and has spent the last 5 years working with companies that communicate the value of great design.

The duo previously founded OpenBuildings.com, a resource for learning about famous architecture.

Designersblock, an international design show producer, will link its participants to Clippings with the first collaboration kicking off at Designersblock Milano during Milan Furniture Fair this year.
