The Design Dilemma

Last November, Roshni and her husband Arun bought their first home together. As a busy young couple, they were so excited to have a long-term home where their 2-year-old daughter could grow up and make memories.

“I wanted to make the space very special and make it a home for my 2-year-old daughter to grow up in,” said Roshni.

But the townhouse they bought was a blank slate, and the idea of designing the space was very overwhelming. Roshni wanted to find the right furniture and decor in the right size and color that also all looked good together. And she wanted to make sure they picked pieces that were kid-friendly and durable.

“I knew it wasn’t going to be an easy task to find all the right pieces that fit the space well and look good,” she said. “So I decided to leave this job for the professionals.”

The Modsy Moment

Roshni turned to Modsy to help design the main living spaces—their living and dining rooms. With Modsy’s 3D technology, Roshni and Arun were able to see life-like images of their home, designed with real furniture and decor.

“When we first saw our designs, our jaws dropped,” said Roshni. “I never would have come up with these designs on my own—but with my designer’s help, I discovered my personal style and found pieces to match it.”

Seeing real pieces in a 3D model of their space gave them the confidence to move forward, knowing that the pieces they bought looked good together and would fit in their space, and that they had landed on layouts that would work in both rooms.

“I loved how easy it was to see everything in my space and I was able to order all items with just a few clicks,” she said

The Real Results

Roshni and Arun love their new living and dining rooms. With the help of their Modsy designer, Roshni and Arun were able to combine their preferred design styles and create rooms that made their new townhouse feel like home.

“I strongly believe that I would have never been able to make my living and dining rooms look this great if I tried to find all the furniture and decor on my own,” said Roshni. “Help from a professional designer was exactly what I needed. It feels so fantastic to have a design that works for our home and lifestyle needs. We now have a beautiful home where we can raise our daughter. We’re so excited for all the memories we will make here.”

Trend Spotlight: Animal Art Is Bringing Joy to Our Walls

A decor trend we’re loving right now? Animal art! It’s such a fun way to add a whimsical element to any space, giving your walls a little extra dose of personality. And we’re not just talking cute animal portraits for a kid’s room! (Though we love it there, too.) There are so many different ways to try out this trend. However you incorporate it into your home, it has a way of bringing personality and joy to your space.

To show you the many ways you can bring this trend to life in your own home, we’re showing off some of our favorite animal art ideas for rooms of all styles, below. Keep reading to get the scoop on a few of our favorite pieces!

Animal Art for Contemporary Spaces

In a contemporary space, we love the idea of animal art in muted tones—which adds visual interest and personality to your walls but isn’t over-the-top bold. These pieces skew more timeless and sophisticated rather than trendy.

We love the idea of vintage-inspired naturalist prints or watercolors for a contemporary space. Ultimately, look for animal art that compliments the color palette in your space.

Animal Art for Rustic Rooms

If ever there were a style where animal art felt right at home, it would be in a rustic space! Rustic and Farmhouse design styles offer the perfect backdrop for animal art, since animals are such an integral part of farm life, and rural living naturally inspires these styles.

Look for paintings of farm animals—sheep, horses, and dogs being a few of our favorites. These pieces pair nicely with paintings of barns or landscapes. But you could also opt for animal photography to give you space a more modern edge. Longhorn cows and Scottish Highland cattle are some of our favorite animals to look for in photographs!

Animal Art for Glam Spaces

You might not think that Hollywood Glam and animal art go together—but one of the little known tenets of Hollywood Glam style is that there is almost always a piece of animal print in the room. We’re talking zebra stripes, cheetah print, snake skin, and more. References to animals are quite common in this style—so animal art in the right style is actually a natural for a glam space!

Glam animal art will be more bold than that in rustic or contemporary space, and it might even be abstracted or surprising. Look for pieces with pops of gold or something that’s high-contrast to help bring the drama!

Animal Art for Kid Rooms and Nurseries

When you think of animal art, kids rooms and nurseries might be the first space you’d think these pieces would go. And kids rooms really are a great home for animal art! If your little one loves their furry friends, this is a great way to add charm and personality to their space.

We like to look for pieces with personality—whether that’s portrait-style paintings or prints of animals dressed up like people. But a cute, simple watercolor of a baby animal is a classic pick for nursery art! Look for fun colors and whimsical designs, which will add sweetness to your child’s room.

Animal Art for Color-Enthusiasts

For color-enthusiasts looking for animal art, the bolder the better! A lot of animal art can skew more neutral or muted, which is reflective of the natural world. But there are ways to add major pops of color to animal-inspired art, giving your space a bright and cheerful vibe.

Look to fauna of the jungle—like butterflies or birds of paradise—for your subject matter. These pieces often have a more abstracted look and feel, and a bolder use of color, making them great for modern spaces.

Modsy 2020 COVID-Inspired Design Trend Report

It’s safe to say that amidst the pandemic, our homes have become more important than ever before. Considering people’s increased connection to their living spaces, we couldn’t help but wonder how this is changing our decisions, priorities, and preferences when it comes to interior design. We sifted through our Modsy data, survey responses from 2,000 people across the country, and Google Trends data to put together a report on COVID-19’s impact on home design.

Quarantine Styles

Sofas were considered the number one most splurge-worthy furniture item and living rooms were the top space people said they wanted to redesign post-pandemic. Not surprising, given the increased amount of time we’re all spending at home. Additionally, a decent number of people said their homes actually added to their stress levels, which were already higher than normal, thanks to the pandemic.

Interior design trends chart

According to our survey results, more people are interested in designing rooms with “flex space” this year, meaning they’re creating spaces where versatility is top of mind. These designs include things like added storage, designated places for hobbies/distance learning, and reading nooks. We’ve also seen an increase in interest in home hygiene/sanitization. More people are looking into germ-resistant materials for flooring and surfaces, automatic faucets, smart toilets, and indoor air quality monitoring.

Pandemic Parent Trends

Parenting has always been tough, but all the stressors surrounding COVID-19 have made it even tougher for parents. With many schools closing and parents working from home while taking care of their kids, the pandemic has contributed to an often very stressful home situation for many families across the US. This has given many people a different perspective on their home design preferences and priorities.comparison graphic about covid and home designFlex spaces and sanitization are top priorities for parents, even more so than non-parentsWhen looking at what’s most important to parents and non-parents in terms of room design, it’s clear that parents are more focused on flex spaces and home hygiene/sanitization.This makes sense given how most parents want to keep their homes as functional, multipurpose, and germ-free as possible with little ones around all the time!

comparison chart

Parents undertook more DIY home projects this year Parents were slightly more likely than non-parents to realize their home was disorganized during the pandemic (although that was still the majority consensus for everyone).Last but not least, parents were more likely to have undertaken DIY home or room design projects during the quarantine than non-parents. How they found the time? That’s a mystery!

Nurseries Are On the Rise

With all the speculation about a potential post-COVID baby boom (and our own data shows that nursery designs are on the rise), we wanted to see which states were the most interested in nursery designs.

Here at Modsy we work closely with some of today’s top retailers to bring you the newest designs in the market that you can try on in your 3D home. And when it comes to modern furniture and decor, more than a few have become our favorite go-to sources.

If you’re looking for a little home decor upgrade but aren’t quite sure where to start, take a peek at these 4 of our favorite retailers for modern furniture. Like what you see? They are all available in our 3D catalog for you to try on in your 3D home!

modern furniture

Schoolhouse Electric

With stores in New York and Portland, Oregon, this retailer is our go-to for impeccable period and modern designs with an artisanal touch and lots of retro charm.

Why We Love Them:

You’ll find an endless selection of high-quality, mid-century-inspired pieces at reasonable prices, which is probably also why it’s a favorite source for designers across the country. Every piece is crafted with care by a team of craftsmen at their factory in Portland.

What to Look For:

Schoolhouse Electric has long been known for sleek lighting and hardware, which range from polished brass floor lamps and cluster pendants to vintage-style copper towel bars for your bathroom. And if you’re looking for mid-century-style furniture with a bit of quirk (gingham ottomans) and heft (industrial bar stools) or great bedding (charming ticking quilts), they’ve got you covered.

 

Modern Furniture

Blu Dot

Founded by two architects and a sculptor, the Minneapolis-based company has been designing and producing modern furniture for more than 20 years. Their philosophy is simple and relatable: “To bring good design to as many people as possible.”

Why We Love Them:

All of the pieces are sustainably designed with form and function in mind – which means you’ll find modern pieces that are cool and comfortable but also family-friendly. Their affordable price points and quick-ship offers also mean you’ll get your furniture fast and for a fraction of what other modern retailers might charge. Keep an eye on their outlet section for the best deals as well as their new design collaborations with cutting-edge companies.

What to Look For:

They beat out lots of cool, modern places for clean-lined, architectural tables and simple, gorgeous wood storage pieces. If you’re looking for a table, dresser, or credenza with a slim open base, you’ll find a wide selection here. Their ultra-modern armchairs are equally sculptural—perfect if you’re looking for a standout seat for your living room.

Minted

While not a furniture retailer per se, we couldn’t make a list of our favorite modern retailers without including Minted. There’s probably no other place that offers as comprehensive a list of independent artists and distinct limited-edition works spanning a variety of mediums as Minted. Consider it your one-stop shop for art from all around the world—and at very affordable prices.

Why We Love Them:

Not only does Minted serve up a huge range of artist works from across the globe, everything is highly customizable and you can easily find pieces within your budget. Minted also provides tips and ideas for hanging your art at home, or they offer a service to do it for you if you’re drawing a blank with your space.

What to Look For:

That depends on what you like, and Minted makes it easy for you to find art that meets any aesthetic. You can shop fine art prints with matte and border specifications or go the bespoke route and pick out new limited-edition paintings and black-and-white photos from individual artists. You can also venture out and commission an original piece, which means you’ll have an artwork that’s specially made for you and your home.

 

modern furniture

Wisteria

Headquartered in Texas, this longstanding home furnishings company has been a beloved online mecca for designs in a wide range of styles, from rustic boho pieces to mid-century-style finds.

Why We Love Them:

Few online spots will provide you with such a huge selection of furnishings in every style you can imagine. While Wisteria has been traditionally known for their furniture with a more classic bent, they now also offer some of the best mid-century-inspired designs on the market. Plus, your order always arrives in 5-7 days—even faster if expedited!

What to Look For:

Look to their latest modern furniture pieces, which include a folding cowhide stool, a bold bridal rug sofa, and some amazing hanging textiles and pillows. Beyond that, consider their leather and leather-woven pieces that span magazine racks and headboards and armchairs in classic mid-century shapes.

The AR Revolution is Here, and It’s the Future We Imagined at Modsy!

A breakdown of one of AR’s most practical use cases today, furniture shopping

 

 

At Modsy we could not be more excited about roll out of Augmented Reality (AR) through ARKit on iOS devices and ARCore on Android devices.  This is just the start of the full unlock of visualization as a part of home design and furniture shopping, something we have long believed will transform the way we all shop for our homes.  AR as a feature will be as fundamental to the next generation of mobile applications as geolocation was to early mobile apps.  There will be very few products that do not in some way take advantage of this feature, overlaying valuable data and visuals positioned through the camera as if they were in the real world.  Furniture shopping and home design are one of the best examples of this new capability and we’re bound to see a lot of action in this space in the coming months!

With all the enthusiasm around the launch of AR we thought it would be helpful to share our analysis of the first generation of AR and where it will be best applied as well as the limitations as it relates to shopping for the home.  

 

What we love about AR for home design & furniture shopping:

1. Shopping validation for single item or small vignettes: The top use case for AR in home furnishings will be to consider how single items and small vignettes look within a room.  It will be very helpful when you have an empty part of your room and you’re considering 1-3 items.  You will likely want to do a good amount of the searching and saving of items before moving into AR mode so you can make the best use of the time when you are standing and looking through the app (both battery life and your own patience may limit how much search and discovery you choose to do in the actual AR mode).  However once you have a variety of items you’d like to consider, moving to the AR view will give you an amazing way to get a sense of the size, look and feel of the item in your actual space.

2. 3D Presence: Both ARKit (iOS) and ARCore (Android) will give us a sense that the objects we are seeing through our screen are really in the room with us.  This is the biggest unlock of this generation of AR on mobile, it is the first time almost every consumer’s phone will have the ability to sense the planes in a room and therefore accurately place and scale items.  You can walk up to and around the objects just like they exist in the real world and even the lighting effects help to simulate the feeling that they are part of your current environment.  While the graphics will not be perfect (they will still have a bit of a game/cartoon feel) they will often be close enough to give you a sense of the shape and scale of an item you are considering.

3. Quick, easy, and on every smart phone: The reason this moment in time is so critical is that AR is will now be a regular feature available on (just about) every consumer’s phone.  For iPhones it will be 6s and later and for Android it will be initially on Pixel and Samsung’s S8.  This means that we are no longer limited to special devices or hardware for a realistic 3D viewing experience in our phone, with the click of a button anyone can move into an AR viewing experience.

 

The limitations of AR for home design and furniture shopping:

1. Best in empty rooms: If you have an empty room or an empty spot/wall AR will be perfect, however for anyone trying to swap out new furniture with existing items it will be a bit more challenging.  If you’re considering a new sofa in place of your current sofa you may have trouble positioning the 3D sofa on top of an existing item in the scene.  You’ll need to either move your sofa or deal with a slightly awkward experience.  The same will go for considering items that need to be positioned in or tightly around existing items, for example rugs or dining room chairs.  The current generation of AR does not know how to detect and work around existing items in the scene in a nuanced way, but rather thinks you would want to place the item on top of the item in the scene.

2. Difficult to use for full room or multi-item designs: While AR is great at detecting planes when you’re working within a limited area of a room it quickly becomes less accurate as you move through and attempt to place multiple items within a full room.  A combination of virtual items intersecting with real items, breaking the illusion, and drifting that can interfere with the accurate placement of larger objects will make it difficult to design a large multi-item room.  The more items you add and the more complex your scene becomes, the harder it will be to keep everything accurate and in place.  It’s going to be best used for considering 1-3 items at a time.

3. Not the right solution for optimizing layouts: This is probably not the feature you want to use if you’re still experimenting with the layout for your room.  It will be difficult to get a complete sense of all the items in the room from AR mode and you may not have a good sense for how close things are to one another without moving around and tweaking.  To experiment you will likely want to use a top down view and experiment from this perspective where you can easily move items around and determine the optimal layout and distance between objects.  Once you have a vision for your room, viewing specific items through AR in the place you are considering will be a great way to validate that you do in fact like the layout and having this item in this location.

4. Recommended Design or DIY Discovery: A key part of using AR effectively will be to use it when you are certain about the products you want to visualize.  If you are struggling to think about what to put in a room or how to pull it all together AR is not going to help.  It is a DIY experience and you’ll need to find the items you like and know exactly where you want to see them.  As we’ve seen at Modsy this is not always where a consumer will begin their journey.  Oftentimes people are feeling overwhelmed and intimidated trying to figure out what items will look good together, how they should be placed in the room, and how to accessorize and bring it all together.  This is not something AR will solve. Once you have a design concept, layout, and a list of the specific products you are considering, this will be the moment to use an AR feature to view these items for a final visual confirmation that this is the perfect piece for your room.

 

We believe that AR shopping experiences will help to transform the way we shop for our homes. It is not a perfect solution in and of itself just yet however.  Between drifting, battery life, plane detection and graphic quality, this first generation of AR will be used for very focused and specific use cases.  As the technology advances the adoption will advance as well, but will likely need to live alongside a larger home shopping and design experience.  The ideal app will include concept planning, inspiration, a complete cross-retailer catalog, tremendously simple UI, amazing search and filter capabilities, and strong recommendations based on your style, budget and room type.  This killer experience will forever transform the way we design our homes and AR will be a key feature enabling this transformation.

Best in Show: Our Favorite Home Decor Finds from Target

A great retailer of on-trend and wallet-friendly furniture, Target is an amazing place to shop for home decor. Their collection features a range of options to suit every style and budget, and sometimes all it takes is a little imagination to see how the look can come together.

To help show you the possibilities, we curated three looks for three popular styles with our favorite Target pieces from our 3D catalogue.

Browse the looks below and try on your favorite pieces in your 3D home.

 

Rustic and Cozy

Create a rustic and cozy reading nook or spruce up your entryway with this simple round up of Target favorites. The Amelia Area Rug in cream and gold (starting at $299) creates a warm and inviting foundation for the space, and the intricate floral pattern adds a layer of richness and rustic texture.

Pair it with the Beechhurst Button Tufted Bench ($229) for an extra dose of understated elegance. The combination of the button tufting with the rustic wood frame adds a note of polish while still keeping your space feeling cozy and inviting.

Finally, the 6-Cube Organizer Shelf ($60) allows for open and organized storage. Dress it up with a few vases or your favorite books – this simple bookcase is super versatile. It can be used horizontally or vertically, so you can easily repurpose it when you want to redecorate or mix up your look.

 

Trendy and Comfy

For those of you who love the look of Mid Century Modern interiors but can’t quite imagine living in them, this modern and comfy living room might be the look for you. Featuring some of our all-time favorite Target finds, this space feels trendy but is still livable and inviting.

The Windson Wood Armchair ($230), which made our hit list for the best lounge chairs under $500, and the Porter Mid Century Modern TV Stand ($275) sport the warm woods and organic forms of classic Mid Century pieces. Pair them with the Nate Berkus Tribal Area Rug ($129) for a pop of color and to give your space a bit of personality and texture.

The Linhigh Woven Wire Coffee Table ($149) is a fun alternative to a standard coffee table. The minimal and modern wire form is sure to start a conversation, and makes the piece super light and easy to move (great for all you nomadic home designers out there).

The ultimate statement piece, we cannot get enough of the Iris Floor Lamp ($229). The elegant silhouette and luxe pops of gold make this a total eye-catcher, as it lends a glamorous and sophisticated touch to any space.

 

Chic and Inviting

Create an enviable entryway with this collection of glamorous Target finds that look a great deal more expensive than they are (sticker shock in the best way). The sleek and minimal Stepney Console Table ($129) has a glam and modern vibe, and the unique Z-base adds extra intrigue to the look.

Perched atop the console, the Audrey Desk Lamp ($40) is a great option for low-profile and flexible lighting. Hanging out next to the Cosette Armchair ($199), it makes for a stylish reading lamp, or try it out on your desk or nightstand. The Cosette Armchair is also a great option if you are looking to add some contemporary seating to your home. The upholstered low back and high arms give this chair a statement shape, while the long tapered legs keep it feeling light and elegant.

Finally, no chic entry would be complete without a fully stocked bar cart. The current must-have item of any trendy interior, bar carts often come with price tags that will make your eyes bulge. But that’s only one of the reasons why we love the Wood & Brass Bar Cart ($129). The gold frame and wood shelves are an ultra-chic combo, and the casters make it easy to maneuver. A great option for small spaces or if you are just looking to add a pop of glam to your home.
