Our 10 Most Popular Instagrams of 2016

What can we say about 2016 that hasn’t already been said? Not much, except maybe for pointing out some of the moments in which it actually felt like a great year — like the time when we put together our biggest-ever Sight Unseen OFFSITE show, or when we were featured in the New York Times, or when 243 of our friends and followers came together to join us in donating nearly $20,000 to progressive causes, helping us find a silver lining amongst all the doom and gloom. And of course, 2016 was in no way short on incredible new furnishings, interiors, and talents, which we took that much more pleasure in chronicling whenever the news seemed grim. This week we’ve been reflecting back on some of the very best, from the stories you loved, to the images you helped turn viral on Pinterest, to the Instagrams that sent our likes skyrocketing. We’ve excerpted 10 of your favorites below.
