Time for a Change?

Virtual interior design is having a bit of a moment, and it's easy to see why.

Founded by Shanna Tellerman, a technology startup veteran who found herself climbing the walls when she couldn't make sense of how furniture purchases would look in her new home, Modsy is known for the ultrarealistic, 3D design renderings its team creates (based on photos and answers to a multiple-choice style quiz). Its $89-and-up packages include interactive, eye-level and bird's-eye-view room designs featuring products from more than 100 retailers. Users have the ability to rearrange layouts and swap in new pieces — and send their designs off for feedback from friends and family — in seconds. Once you've decided which pieces are must-have purchases, their concierge team will help with the logistics of ordering and shipping them to you.

CB2 Interiors

Think of CB2's virtual room design offerings as Modsy's half-siblings: for a lower entry price of $49 (or $99 for a package that includes direct access to a stylist and personalized design tips), you'll upload photos of your space, answer a style quiz, and receive two Modsy-caliber, rearrangable-and-swappable 3D renderings of your space with CB2 products chosen by in-house stylists. If you've got a hunch that your next interior buy or buys will come from CB2, these design packages are the ideal way to shop from home: your design fee will be credited back toward merchandise you purchase once you've rearranged and swapped to your heart's content.
