If you’ve ever wondered what a piece of furniture looks like in your home before you buy it, you might be familiar with the fact the Swedish furniture maker, IKEA, has an app called “Place” that uses augmented reality (AR) to help overlay furniture from the company’s catalogue into your room.
The only problem with the app is that it limited you to pretty much one piece of furniture at a time, so if you wanted to design an entire room, that would be pretty much impossible. However, the good news is that the app has since been upgraded where in its latest update, it will now allow users to place multiple pieces of furniture in their room at once.
This means that if you wanted design an entire dining room, you should be able to do so using the app and dropping various pieces of dining furniture into your room to give you an idea of what to expect. The update will also introduce a new “For You” feed where it will show users a bunch of collections and new products and suggestions if you’re looking for somewhere to start.
The updated IKEA Place app for iOS is already available for download but if you’re on Android, the update is expected to arrive slightly later in the near future.
