How Modsy is carving a niche in the future of interior design

After spending months at home practicing stay-at-home orders, some Americans are itching to spruce up their space — and Modsy is looking to assist.  

Although over 50 million people have lost their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic, those with flexible work-from-home arrangements still have the means to spruce up their abodes. Indeed, the lockdowns of March and April gave some of them a head start.

Enter Modsy, which just recently launched its first mobile app for IOS offering 3D renderings, merging professional and do-it-yourself (DIY) designs.

“We want to create a space where you’re excited to live in. The app is designed to take pictures of your space and render it into a photorealistic version of your room. No measurements required,” Modsy Founder & CEO Shanna Tellerman told Yahoo Finance’s On The Move last week.

Virtual Design Services – Modsy Online Design During a Pandemic

So it’s only natural if you’re among those who want to turn to an online design company that offers completely virtual—i.e., no personal contact—design services, providing clients with the tools they need to keep their redesigns rolling during this new era of social distancing.
