Designing with Wayfair in Chief Architect
By Dani Walker
Chief Architect recently partnered with Wayfair Trade to produce a catalog of over 500 free models for our 3D Library.
This catalog includes a collection of lighting, furniture, and home décor models of real-life products from Wayfair.com. Chief Architect and Home Designer customers are able to create free, shoppable renderings for clients of any style. With more than 10,000 suppliers and eight million products, Wayfair is one of the largest online shopping destinations for all home décor and furnishings.
There are many ways to partner with this e-commerce company, with one of the more popular options being the Wayfair Trade program. This partnership allows professionals (i.e., architects, interiors designers, builders, home stagers, etc.) to collaborate with Wayfair to receive insider product collections and exclusive benefits. These benefits include:
- Discounts where members can save up to 25% off consumer prices with member-only deals
- Members receive a personal account manager who is a dedicated industry expert that can assist with everything from product discovery to delivery options
- One-stop shopping allowing members to discover millions of items for every style and budget, trade-exclusive brands, and commercially rated products
- No purchase minimums with fast, free, 2-day shipping
Aside from being a one-stop shop for all home décor, Wayfair also provides great resources for design advice and DIY ideas. You can utilize these articles and the Wayfair Trade catalog to create your own 3D rendition of a project within Chief Architect or Home Designer software.
Once you complete your design space, you can easily find the location where to purchase the item in the Furniture Specification Box under the Object Information Panel within the software. Simply copy and paste the URL into your browser to go directly to the product’s page!
