The Modsy 3D Style Editor: Our Newest, and Most Exciting, Feature

Today at Modsy we are excited to finally, and officially, announce our latest and greatest feature that is helping us change the face of home design.

As you maybe know, we’ve already created a world in which you can try on furniture in your own home. With a little dose of Modsy Magic, it is 100% possible to see if that bed will fit in your room and how that rug will look with it, without the heavy lifting or MacGyvering your Pinterest boards.

But maybe you’ve always dreamed (literally) of moving your bed frame to the other side of the room. Or perhaps shopping for furniture brings out commitment issues that you didn’t even know you had. If this sounds like you, we say go ahead and roll your sleeves back down because we are now giving you the power to make all these amazing changes with the push of a button.

Say “hello” to Modsy’s 3D Style Editor, which gives you the ability to not only swap products, but move, rearrange, and re-visualize them in the context of your own space. Don’t like that sofa? Let’s try this one! Oh wow – that’s really large – how about this instead? Hm, what if we move it over here? Perfect!

Why is this great news for you? Here are a few reasons:

Instant changes > instant coffee:

  • No more playing the waiting game because now you have the power to instantly (!) make changes to your designs. Our 3D Style Editor unlocks your designs and makes it easy to move and rearrange the furniture in your room. You can finally see what your living room would look like with a new layout, minus the heavy lifting.

Pick a sofa, any sofa:

  • Modsy’s talented fleet of designers get you started with initial designs for your space. But if you don’t love the furniture we picked the first time around, no problem! With our 3D Style Editor you can easily swap in any product from our vast, and ever-growing, virtual catalog of furniture. Instantly seeing it in your space means no more guessing if a king-size bed will fit in your room or if that side table is too small next to your sofa.

Can’t stop the styling:

  • At Modsy we never want our customers to leave unhappy with their designs. In fact, we don’t want you to leave at all! That’s why we encourage you to keep using our 3D Style Editor tool to continue swapping, moving, and visualizing your space! Sims enthusiasts and Pinterest junkies rejoice!

When you’re done, simply submit your changes and receive beautiful, photo-realistic images of your designs re-imagined in your real-life room. Now that’s what we call Modsy Magic.

*If you have an older version of the Modsy Studio, please email hello@modsy.com and we’ll update your account so you can try out this new feature asap!

 

Boho Glam Wonderland: Give Your Hollywood Glam Living Room a Bohemian Twist

Have you ever walked into a room and wanted to touch everything? That’s how we feel about this India Mahdavi-worthy living room, that’s full of luscious textures, earthy colors, and sumptuous materials. The result is a boho glam wonderland!

Boho Glam Living Room

Check out the shopping list below, with 100% real (and affordable) products and take a peek at our cheat sheet to learn how to get the look.

How you can get the boho glam look:

  • Start with materials: The key to this look is the combination of organic and luxurious materials. Soft leather, stone, sheepskin, velvet, and shiny gold are your friends.

 

  • Make an understated statement: Nix the frills of Hollywood Glam and say “no thanks” to button tufting, sparkles, and exaggerated patterns. Instead, let the materials shine by choosing pieces with sleek forms.

  • Add natural textures: Emphasize the bohemian element of your space with textures that showcase nature. We love the Sandstone Pattern wall art from Williams Sonoma, and have our eye fixed on the watery surface of the Ripple Media Console (CB2).

 

  • Curate an earthy color palette: If you can’t find it in nature, you won’t find it in this living room (looking at you hot pink!). We started with a base of charcoal and stoney greys and then layered in earthy hues. Think jewel tones, and seek out those saturated colors that will give your space a bohemian edge.

  • Top it off with some whimsy: Create a playful space with whimsical accessories. Look for artwork that is a bit tongue-in-cheek for some great conversation pieces (as if this living room isn’t enough already).
    • We love the playful look of Anthropologie’s Ibex Side Table, and got a good laugh out of Alex Kostinskyi’s Knuba print (Artfully Walls).

Voila! Your living room is now the perfect balance of bohemian, glamorous, and minimal – oh my!

New Feature: Replace Products in Your Existing Designs

Imagine a world where you could have the utmost confidence that the piece of furniture you’ve been eying will actually look great in your own space. You know it will fit, you know how it should be laid out, and you know how it looks with other pieces already in your room. The best part? You don’t actually have to buy it to know all of this!

Today at Modsy we’re making that world possible. We rolled out a big new feature in our beta that we’re excited to tell you more about. (Drumroll please….)

As a Modsy member, you now have the ability to automagically(!) replace products in your existing room designs with alternatives of your choosing.

Why is this exciting for you? A few reasons:

You choose what you like.

Not totally in love with the sofa, or the rug, or the artwork we put in your initial designs? No problem. Scroll through our alternative products and select the one you love.

See it in your own space.

No need to rely on just your imagination anymore. Once you’ve selected alternative products for your design, we will develop additional photo-realistic images that allow you to literally “see it to believe it.”

Don’t stop until you’ve found “the one.”

Why settle? Try on new furniture until you’ve found that perfect piece you’ve been looking for.

How it works:

1. If you already have a Modsy Studio*, log in to it. (If you don’t, sign up asap!)  🙂

2. Access the Replace feature through the “Replace” button on the main toolbar…

3. Select the product you’d like to swap out and then select the alternative product you’d like to take its place.

4. Continue selecting existing products and alternative products until you’ve made all the replacements you’d like to see. **Note – you can replace 1 to all of the products in the design if you’d like!

5. Click “Review” to see the list of products in the new design.

6. After you click “Submit Redesign”, you’ll see a ‘pending’ design in your design bar:

That’s it! In 2 business days you’ll receive your new designs with the products of your choosing incorporated!

What’s coming next:

Right now, after you click “submit”, it takes about 2 business days to receive your new design. While we know this isn’t ideal, we are still unbelievably excited about it – this is some incredibly cutting edge technology we’re building over here!

The reasons behind a 2-day lag are quite technical, but the gist of it lies in the fact that “rendering” these photo-realistic images takes a bit of computational time. That being said, we’re hard at work improving the back-end technology to make this replace feature as close to real-time as possible. This is just our first step to get there!

Interested in trying out this new feature for yourself? If you’re a member, simply log in to your existing Modsy Studio and get started!* And if you’re not yet a member, head to modsy.com and sign up to start redesigning your own space today!

*If you have an older version of the Modsy Studio, please email hello@modsy.com and we’ll update your old Lookbook so you can try out this new feature asap!
