The Material Review

Though its clever name conjures thoughts of report cards or stressful meetings with the boss, The Material Review is actually a virtual art gallery—a font of inspiring and sometimes odd (but always aesthetically-pleasing) images. The striking site is curated by fashion publicist and writer behind the spot-on A Continuous Lean, Michael Williams. The blog has a scroll-friendly, eye candy format inspired by such sites as FFFFound and JJJJound. As you can probably tell, we're fans of a clean and easy-to-digest layout, and thus, The Material Review gets good marks in our books. (All photos via The Material Review.)
