Furnwish is an immersive augmented reality app that empowers homeowners to visualize furniture in their own space as well as helps retailers and design professionals better showcase their products and services.
Homeowners can visualize and customize any furniture with accurate measurements while also layering different products from different stores simultaneously, instantly translating design inspirations into reality. Furnwish will initially focus on newlyweds to capitalize on a sizable and growing market in Egypt. Around 300,000 couples get married each year in Egypt – a figure that grows 1.4% annually – and spend a total of $4.5 Billion on furnishing homes.
Furniture stores and design firms can use the app to showcase more inventory in less space and offer a better customer experience through augmented reality showrooms, meaning less returns and refunds and equaling more sales.
To all you newlyweds, design & decor enthusiasts and renovating home owners out there.
