Meet Design Messenger: An Exciting Feature Coming Soon

Communicating with your Modsy designer just got easier. We’re thrilled to introduce you to our newest feature—Design Messenger! Design Messenger is the new communication portal that lets you easily communicate with your designer directly from your designs.

What does this mean? For starters, no more missed emails, no more digging through your inbox to find your design notes, and no more clicking back and forth between your designs and your email. Now all of your communications with your designer will be saved in one easy-to-find place.

Design Messenger will be available in March, so keep an eye out for a notification from us letting you know it’s live in your project. You’ll be able to access this new feature on your computer, on a mobile device, and in the Modsy iOS app. To get started messaging, simply navigate to your Project or Design page, click or tap on your designer’s photo, and strike up the conversation!

What Makes Design Messenger So Great?

We might be biased—but we think there’s a lot to love about this new tool. Here are the top four reasons we think you’ll love Design Messenger!

1. Develop a More Personal Relationship With Your Designer

One of our biggest hopes with Design Messenger is that it gives you and your designer the opportunity to develop a more personal relationship. Through the messaging portal—a more casual form of communication than email—you can get to know each other better and make bringing your dream room to life even easier. Working on your project will start to feel a lot more like texting a friend and less like emailing feedback to a coworker!

2. Easily Communicate and Share Feedback

We want to simplify the way you communicate with your Modsy designer. That’s why we’ve set up Design Messenger as a one-stop-shop for communication between you and your designer. With this messaging portal, you can send inspiration photos and files, chat about your specific project goals and needs, ask questions about your designs, request revisions, and coordinate with your designer to schedule and join video calls! And you can easily scroll back to see your full chat history. When you message your designer, you can typically expect a response within 1-2 days—and often sooner.

3. Do It All Directly From Your Designs

No more bouncing between tabs and windows when you have questions about your designs. With Design Messenger, you can communicate with your designer while actually looking at your designs! That means you can explore your designs and send feedback all in the same place and at the same time.

4. Keep Everything Organized

Never rummage through your inbox again to find old email communication with your designer or notes on your project. Design Messenger was designed to replace cumbersome email communications with your designer. All your new messages will be saved in one easy-to-access place, which you can reference and add to at any time! And you don’t have to worry about missing a message! When your designer sends you a message, you’ll receive an email notification. From that email, you’ll be able to easily navigate to the Design Messenger portal to view and reply to the message.

A major milestone and the starting line!

In February 2015 we set out with an ambitious dream, and today we are thrilled to announce that Modsy has officially emerged from beta to transform the way consumers shop for and design their homes.  

We have worked tirelessly, constantly testing with customers, pushing the limits on the product capabilities, expanding our incredible team, and continuously looking for ways to improve. And this release is just the beginning. We have several amazing things in the pipeline and cannot wait to continue this momentum.

Modsy is the solution we’ve all been searching for when it comes to designing our homes. It is not enough to put furniture online or make interior design more affordable – it’s time for a true technology-based transformation!

At each step we’ve seen a little glimmer of the magic that Modsy can create. We’ve seen the “wow” on someone’s face when she realizes that the image she sees is not a photograph. We’ve heard pure joy from a customer discovering a product he absolutely loves. And most importantly, we’ve seen customer after customer transform their homes into something they truly love.

Modsy is technology meets design at its very best!

  • First and foremost, we are building a product that works for a real person. No specialized hardware, software, or goggles required.
  • We are building a product that empowers you to lead the design of your own home.
  • We are building a product that relies on technology to do the heavy lifting. Reconstructing 3D room models, curating and suggesting products, creating optimal layouts, and more.
  • We are building a product that brings in the human touch where the impact is greatest. Providing creative inspiration and assisting in your design process only as necessary and as requested.

To reach this significant milestone it has taken the tremendous dedication of everyone here on the Modsy team and the support of our friends, family, investors, advisors, and customers. A product launch is more than just a moment in time – it is the culmination of countless hours and the determination to bring the impossible to life. Today we are taking a moment to celebrate and thank everyone who has been involved. And to recognize that we have accomplished so much, yet our journey has only just begun!
