Trend USA, a division of Trend Group and international manufacturer and distributor of engineered stone and mosaic tile collections, places its vast product collection and design expertise in the palms of interior design aficionados everywhere with the launch of its first iPad application. This new iPad application, titled iTREND, was created to help users bring their interior design dreams one step closer to reality, as well as allow designers the opportunity to assist clients by showcasing what the actual completed design would look like.
iTREND allows users to upload a snapshot of their environment, including kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms or spas, and with a few simple swipes, transform all the surfaces with glass mosaic, engineered stone or sophisticated wallpaper patterns of mosaic tiles. Users can customize their home or office environment based on their personal tastes and easily use iTREND to share the resulting image with friends and family.
“One of the biggest design hurdles is trying to visualize what a room will look like from a few small color samples,” explains Carl Griffenkranz, vice president of marketing for Trend USA. “We now can turn nearly 40 million iPad owners in North America today into interior designers in their own right. While learning about our various products and services, consumers can truly see how their dream kitchen, bath, office or even their pool will turn out.”
The iTREND iPad application, including an optimized version for IOS5, features:
- iTREND Rooms
o View pre-designed kitchen and bathrooms by Trend USA
o Customize pre-designed rooms utilizing Trend USA products
- My Rooms
o Import from photo library (rooms can include bathroom, kitchen, living room or other rooms in the home or office)
o Change surfaces with glass mosaic, engineered stone or sophisticated wallpaper patterns of mosaic tiles
o Save My Rooms in your iPhoto or send them via email to family and friends to solicit opinions
“This application is also ideal for interior designers, who often visit consumer homes for consultations and are looking for a way to help their clients imagine what the final design will look like,” explains Elena Girardello, interior designer at Trend USA. “Instead of just showing small tiles and mosaics on a design board, with iTREND, design specialists can show clients what the room will actually look like when the work is complete, giving them an advantage over other designers in their area.”
In addition to its ease of use, the application also features examples of completed Trend USA designs for those who don’t know where to start and the ability to search for a Trend USA distributor near you. To get the application, visit the iTunes AppStore under the Lifestyle category and download the free iTREND app today.
