In three short months, the world has witnessed major sporting events, a plane disappear into thin air and much more. Perhaps not as exciting as the energetic springs, gluttonous summers and studious autumns we are accustomed to, the winter and new year allow us to start fresh.

With a non-stop calendar starting at IMM Cologne, IDS, Maison & Object and Stockholm Design Week and moving onto Design Days Dubai, the industry reveals its latest innovations before conquering Milan’s Salone del Mobile and Fuori Salone in April. At this pivotal point in the year, Frame looks back through social media platforms to select the 10 most read web articles, published between January and March.
