SmartSpace™: An Innovative New Design on Demand® Application

130403_Blog_Post_SmartSpace_Header

Today we are launching a beta version of SmartSpace™, our new web application. It’s a forum for imagination, a pinboard for your design inspiration, or even a product configurator. You’ve never been able to see what furniture looks like in your own living room before, and SmartSpace is our solution to that dilemma.

You know how you’re not quite sure how a fabric color – or particular piece of furniture – will look in your home until you put it in place? Well, SmartSpace changes that by helping you to “see” it in your own home. That’s preferable, wouldn’t you agree? All you have to do is take a picture of your living room (dining room, bedroom, kitchen, etc.) and upload it to your SmartSpace, and set the furniture in place.

Without giving you the opportunity to see what I’m talking about, it sounds like I’m hyping something that’s been done before. But that’s not the case. SmartSpace is breaking new ground – both in terms of space visualization, and in the way it helps people shop smarter. Here are a couple of examples so you can see what I’m talking about.

 

Smart Space collage

You can make a collage of furniture you love, like this …

 

Smart Space room view

… or you can arrange the furniture over a picture of your space to see how your choices will look.

 

Not only can you see furniture in your space, but you can also customize most of it within SmartSpace until you get the look you want. Change color and other options to your heart’s content!

Once you’re happy with your room you can save it – and if you want, you can share it with friends via Pinterest, Facebook,  Twitter, and Google Plus. Their feedback might be just what you’re looking for, as validation of your design sense or just a good reason to make a few more tweaks. If you really like it, you can publicly save it in the SmartSpace Design Community and comment on other users’ SmartSpaces. I like that functionality a lot, because I love collaboration.

I’m proud to say that Smart Furniture is pushing the tech envelope (again). No one has offered a shopping tool as useful as this before. I’m proud to announce the launch of the SmartSpace – go try it out and let us know what you think!

I work under the official-sounding, completely made-up title of Web Marketing Content Specialist. That's simply because "Dude Who Writes Stuff" would make a lame title. Oh, and my co-workers don't let me make the Chewbacca noise in the office. For some reason it bothers them. But that's the first sound that comes to my mind when something deserves a reaction. I'll let you draw your own conclusions about me based on that.
