Living in 21st century has set many challenges. Among those one called on by 2020 – adapting to work from home reality. Many of what has been done before now needs to be thrown way or changed drastically. One of these things are weighty catalogues of new products / finishes / textiles. Almost impossible to carry around, pricey to print and hard to create, these things can now safely be sent to rest. Show all your thousands of fabrics in one place – apply them to any furniture you wish; apply tiles to all the surfaces – be it floors, walls or ceiling; customize lighting fixtures and change their setting on the go – nothing is impossible with L-Room product configurator.
Our recent interactive 3D product configuration software L-Room was created for one of the largest textile manufacturer D’Decor Home Fabrics Pvt. in India with headquarters in Mumbai. D’Decor is the World’s largest woven upholstery and curtain mill according to Fabric & Furnishing International. The Web claims that daily output of D’decor’s plants sums up to 120.000 meters of fabrics. These include a large spectrum of products comprising furnishing fabrics, embroidered fabrics, yarns, ready-mades, velvets and wallpapers. Hundreds and thousands of new designs appear each week / month / year and sample catalogues are getting more and more heavy to carry around to the fairs and to the clients.
Furthermore, with complicated patterns it becomes trickier to imagine them being applied to your favorite bed and combined with those dear to heart pillows of yours. Especially when all clients are on lockdown and there’s no way you can reach them with a suitable proposal. So our main goal was to provide the client with a portable, all-encompassing customization software, that will allow them to have all their materials in one place and create all possible (and impossible) textile combinations inside interior spaces on the go.

Choosing the right materials

With L-Room all of the issues were solved – we offered the best solution there is to showcase your products in the most favorable light. As a result, we have compiled a program, consisting of multiple interior options with an ability to apply the materials to every needed surface.

Interior design options

Each room in the software can be designed according to client’s special wishes or chosen among pre-fabricated ones. Combinations of exterior and interior spaces are also possible.
Inside the room we can switch not only between various materials, but also among different furniture options.

Multiple materials combinations

With hundreds of materials uploaded even the craziest combinations come to life – pillows, throws and blankets can be each of a mind-blowing color or even incompatible – try the best and the worst combinations before settling on a perfect one. Apply materials to all you can see – as our client specializes not only in bedding, but also furnishing fabrics, it was crucial to showcase the changeable upholstery on poufs, chairs, sofas.

Virtual camera presets

The room can be navigated freely, or explored through multiple camera presets.

Creating high resolution screenshots

Having decided on the preferred textile combination, the user can create numerous hi-res renderings taken from the desired angle and either store them locally or send it to the client. This way the manufacturer is not tied to the rendering company each time they launch a new textile collection. Create as many visuals as needed for printed catalogues or eCommerce business without paying a single extra penny.
