By 2021, the e-commerce market for home furnishings is expected to reach $62 billion.

WeLivv is targeting this market with its e-commerce platform. This platform creates personalized, interactive shopping experiences for design professionals and individual consumers.

Shoppers can view more than 4 million interior design photos, discover new furniture brands, and purchase high-end products all on the same platform.

WeLivv’s platform combines an Artificial Intelligence-based interactive search with an innovative user design experience. Shoppers can search for items by room or style, and even receive “smart” suggestions to narrow their search.

Once they’ve found an item, shoppers can view product details, browse interior design spaces that feature the product, and purchase it through WeLivv’s marketplace.

More than 40,000 products are available for purchase through WeLivv, which launched a beta version of its platform in 2017. The company is raising capital to increase the number of available products to 250,000, and launch officially.
