MoDA's website is still in the final stages of development; it should be ready in the next few weeks after what feels like endless delays. Thank you for your patience, and let's hope it will be worth the wait!
In the meantime, object records from the museum'scollections are already being shared online in various ways, notably through a website called 'Exploring Twentieth Century London'. This site brings together objects from a number of museums across London, to tell the story (or rather stories) of the century in away that no single museum would be able to do on its own. The site is well worth a look; you'll find some of MoDA's objects in the sections related to the home and suburbia, as well as loads of interesting stuff from elsewhere. You can browse by theme, by decade, or by geographical area.

Museum of Domestic Design & Architecture (BADDA219)
Interestingly,the record which gets most 'hits' each month by users of the site is a furniture catalogue from MoDA's collection; the 'Beautility' furniture catalogue from1958. I have no idea why this should be receiving so much interest. If anyone has any thoughts on the reasons for the remarkable popularity of this object, I'd be fascinated to hear them!
