Pottery Barn 3D Room View offers many ways to design a room. Customers can add items to a room to see how they will look and fit with existing furniture and décor, or start with an empty room to begin the design process from scratch. From there, customers can tap or swipe to add, remove or move items around the room, change the color and zoom in to see product details. Through the app, customers have access to over 1500 products in varying sizes, colors and configurations. At launch, the app will focus on living room categories including sofas, sectionals, chairs, coffee tables, side tables, rugs and lamps, and will continue to add additional product categories in the coming months. For customers seeking additional inspiration, there are seven different pre-styled living room looks curated by Pottery Barn design experts that can be customized for any space.

  • Change the color, size or placement of an item.
  • Save and share your room design via email.
  • Connect through the app to shop from the Pottery Barn site.
