SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2016) - Modsy, a leading personalized home design solution, today announced that it has officially emerged from beta to transform the way consumers currently shop for and design their homes. Leveraging breakthrough 3D design and visualization technology, Modsy empowers consumers everywhere to see what furniture and home decor would look like in their home before they buy.
The market for interior design services continues to intensify, but none of these solutions have used technology as the foundation to truly transform the way we design. For the average person, trying to imagine various design possibilities in a room can be hard and frustrating. Whether you are doing it yourself, or working with a design professional, it is difficult to truly imagine how everything will look in your own space. From just a few photos of your space, Modsy lets you virtually "try on" furniture, art and design via a photorealistic 3D model of your room.
To date most tech-enabled solutions have been too hard for the average consumer or require specialized hardware to enable VR or AR functionality. Modsy has been designed for the mainstream consumer with no special hardware requirements, making the process as easy and accessible as flipping through Pinterest and Houzz.
Behind the scenes, Modsy is leveraging advanced technologies including computer vision, 3D capture, and photorealistic 3D rendering to produce a simple yet magical experience for customers. With just a few steps to capture photos of your home and understand your taste preferences, Modsy creates a shoppable catalog of design ideas staged in your very own home. You then have the opportunity to create unlimited iterations and product combinations from a large variety of brand name and boutique retailers until you find what you love.
Modsy has taken a technology-centric approach from the start with the goal of solving the problem of visualization, which sits at the very core of home design. The base technology empowers the consumer to take the lead in creating their design and can be used stand alone or paired with interior design services. Modsy was designed to be simple, inspiring and an essential tool for any consumer that wants to gain confidence and try various possibilities before they decide what to buy.
"No other founding team or company in the space is better positioned to transform the home furnishing shopping experience than Modsy," said Jeff Crowe, Managing Partner, Norwest Venture Partners. "The team has harnessed the power of complex graphic design and 3D technology to create a simple, elegant platform that helps consumers see what real products and designs look like in their actual homes."
Modsy is a product that allows consumers to visualize design ideas in the context of their very own home. The company was founded in February 2015 in San Francisco, CA. The team is made up of veterans from film, games, 3D and design. Investors include Norwest Venture Partners, Google Ventures, Metamorphic Ventures, Birchmere Ventures, Susa Ventures, Ame Cloud Ventures, BBG Ventures, and Astia.
