IKEA Place lets you virtually ‘place’ IKEA products in your space.
The app includes 3D and true-to-scale models of everything from sofas and armchairs to footstools and coffee tables. IKEA Place gives you an accurate impression of the furniture’s size, design and functionality in your home so you can stop wondering and start doing.

To use the app:
– Scan the floor with your smart phone
– Browse the list of products available
– Select a product that you want to place
– Point your iPhone or iPad at an open space in the room
– Drag and drop the product into the space you see fit

The app lets also you share your ‘place’ with social apps like WhatsApp or Instagram. And ultimately, order your products through IKEA Store.

iPhone and iPad users running iOS 11 can overlay 3D models of IKEA furniture and other items into the rooms of their home or office, offering a real-time view of how the item would look in the space. Products include sofas, chairs, tables, and more.

To use the app, customers simply scan the room’s floor with the camera on their iOS device, select a product, and place the item in the room. Users can view the object from different angles, and get closer to view details.

Of course, snapshots of the virtual furniture can be shared on social media. If the item looks as good as was hoped, it can be ordered from an in-app link.

IKEA Place is now available for free in the iOS App Store. [GET IT HERE]
