NORTHBROOK, Ill. (PRWEB) April 30, 2018
Today, global home furnishings retailer Crate and Barrel announced a partnership with technology innovator Modsy to power the Crate Design Studio 3D Room Designer. The addition of Modsy’s proprietary technology enhances the Crate and Barrel Design Services program by allowing customers to envision how the brand’s furniture, art and decor will look in their own homes. The two companies introduced a pilot program in July 2017, making Crate and Barrel the first retailer to test Modsy’s concept. With today’s official launch, the Crate Design Studio 3D Room Designer will be available to Crate and Barrel customers online and in stores across the country as part of the Crate and Barrel Design Services program.
“Shopping for the home is a deeply personal experience and we want our customers to have confidence that the furniture they’re investing in is perfect, in every sense of the word,” said Joan King, Vice President, eCommerce at Crate and Barrel. “We’re constantly looking at ways to enhance the shopping experience - whether in-store or online - and we’re thrilled to partner with an innovative company like Modsy to help us bring that layer of visual reassurance that customers can’t get anywhere else.”
“The Crate and Barrel Design Services program exemplifies what we believe is the future of furniture shopping and we’re extremely proud to be a part of their vision,” said Shanna Tellerman, CEO of Modsy. “Crate and Barrel is known for their customer focus and ability to adapt to what customers need and want out of an engaging, end-to-end shopping experience. We are confident that our partnership continues to define that industry standard."
Crate and Barrel customers can start their Design Services journey in store or online through the brand’s Premium Design Services package, which includes the services of a Design Expert, mood board, 2D floor plan and optional in-home consultation. With the addition of the Crate Design Studio 3D Room Designer powered by Modsy, customers can now also visualize their favorite Crate and Barrel products in their own homes.
CB2, a division of Crate and Barrel, also uses Modsy technology to power CB2 Interiors, the brand’s online design services program. CB2 Interiors offers customers access to a Modsy Style Advisor and a 3D visualization of their rooms styled with CB2 products.
