Interior Design Industry Fusing Virtual and Real Worlds

(Inc.) Interior design’s traditional in-person client-designer relationship is no longer the leading industry norm. Innovative platforms that use technology to execute interior design are elevating the process without depriving the individuals of any sought-after personal touches. New technologies are showing a lot of promise for the future of interior design including the integration of 3D printing, both augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR), and smart homes.
AR is already being used to fuse together the virtual and real world by placing virtual products over the customer’s actual spaces. Hutch, an LA-based virtual design app, allows users to take a photo of a space and try different products and styles in order to see it virtually decorated. Download the app, snap a photo, let it process the room, then users can swipe through different style categories and essentially drag-and-drop different items to see it in place.
