Rugs and Rooms announces a collaboration with ZEG.ai which allows customers to browse their products in a 3-dimensional view and uses augmented reality (AR) to enable iPhone users to place the furniture items in their room, take pictures and share with others. The technology is built in real world dimensions, meaning that customers see exactly how big the furniture is and how well it fits their space without having to take out a measuring tape. The partnership brings AR to the side tables in the furniture department with more to come soon.
The benefit of using AR on furniture means that customers can zoom into the product to see the details and understand the texture, but most importantly it can be used to choose the right size furniture for their living area without having to measure the space.
Founded by two sisters, who are Rug specialists, Rugs and Rooms is integrating the 3D technology into home decoration in a unique way and the innovation has already started to yield amazing results. The Shop in 3D feature is designed to work on every phone and desktop while the augmented reality feature, where customers place the object in a room and have a feel of how the room looks in real-life works for all iPhone users on the safari browsers. Both features have offered some fascinating results already on the company’s website.
Co-Founder Mariam Tayeb says “We believe the power of AR will revolutionise the world of interior design by giving consumers the ability to become their own interior designer. This was the vision of our partnership with ZEG.ai”. A video demonstration of the feature is available here:
“3D visualisation provides an unparalleled experience for consumers but 3D content is out of reach for most retailers. ZEG.ai is removing the barriers to 3D generation for Rugs and Rooms by digitising their products faster and easier than before”, said Tushar Sharma, Co-Founder of ZEG.ai.
The idea to combine AR with 3D in collaboration with technology companies to offer an unprecedented experience for Home styling/interior designers as well as their clients was inspired by the difficulty in getting orders fulfilled as desired. Often products ordered online do not meet the expectation of customers. Consequently, Rugs and Rooms is giving customers a new way of shopping with clarity, allowing them to get their favorite home and garden décor items.
The plan is to roll out the AR shopping feature out into other categories on RugsandRooms.com over the course of the next year to enable all products to be viewed in 3D and AR where possible.
