Wayfair Partners With SketchUp To Launch Its 3D Furniture Library


Interior design can sometimes be a long and arduous process where designers search high and low for just the right piece of furniture to fit the right space.

From selecting various fabrics to working with a myriad of manufacturers or digging through a multitude of antique stores, most designers work long hours to ensure their clients have the look and feel of a well-designed space tailored to their taste.

One company looking to make the lives of designers easier is the online home furnishings and decor website Wayfair. The company announced its partnership with 3-D modeling software SketchUp this week to launch its 3-D model library.

In its initial release, Wayfair is sharing 1,000 models to SketchUp’s 3-D Warehouse. This new offering seeks to provide a large range of furniture and home decor to help designers to virtually visualize designs.

Wayfair’s co-chairman and cofounder, Steve Conine, commented in the company's press release on how this new offering will benefit the design process. He said, “Through the Wayfair Trade program, Wayfair has long been committed to supporting the unique needs of the design community with a team of dedicated experts who can seamlessly manage product selection and offer competitive pricing. The availability of our 3-D model library on SketchUp will further streamline this process by enabling designers to quickly and accurately place furniture into their designs, easily test a variety of options and, ultimately, use the real product in their visualizations.

This new offering brings interior design to a new level of actualization that helps enhance the overall process. Designers can now design at the touch of a button.
