This past weekend at the Evansville Startup Weekend in Evansville, Indiana, young entrepreneurs gathered at the University Of Southern Indiana College Of Business to show off some innovative, new ideas. But the big winner wasn’t curing cancer, lowering carbon emissions, or contriving new ways to win big on the stock market – they were helping to place furniture.
The winning idea, Furnish, designed by Michael Patzer, Andrew Heil and Andy Markle, allows users to walk into a room and virtually place furniture.
The app, aimed at interior designers and furniture companies, is one of the many furniture oriented apps available on the market today. This article from Furnish 123 Austin highlights a number of unique applications specifically designed for home design and remodeling.
MagicPlan, for instance, takes pictures of a space and then measures, draws, and publishes an interactive floor plan on the web. Colorsnap takes color photos and matches them with Sherwin-Williams paint colors. And I.D. Wood, which works with or without an Internet connection, provides a virtual wood guide featuring samples and information.
And there’s more. Scoured throughout the web and buzzing through the minds of innovative thinkers, furniture apps are growing and growing, making the shopping experience easier and more precise than ever.
