Houzz’s new version comes with a catalog of 500,000 products in 3-D. It eliminates a quirk of the previous iteration, which required users to pinch and zoom furnishings into place – an arduous task in my experience, that resulted in inadvertently shrinking items down to the size of a pea whenever I tried to fit them to my space. Now the app eliminates that frustration by automatically sizing images to scale. A new version of “View in My Room 3-D” was released on Sept. 26 for Android users.

The ideal outdoor dining chair isn’t simply a more durable version of an interior chair. It should encourage lounging.

While the filters were easy and fun to play with, I was disappointed by the lack of options when trying to create my own look. Though I was designing a living room and bedroom, there were no options to customize other spaces like a dining area, children’s bedroom or playroom. And while I wanted to put a TV console under the window in my living room, the only categories available were sofas, coffee tables, lamps, art, curtains and rods, bouquets, and side tables.

On sun-bleached woodwork, leather alternatives and anything but subway tile.

Spirulina smoothies, quinoa bowls, chicory salads: They’re all dining clichés. But so is the décor around them: brass sconces, midcentury chairs, tile mosaics.

Whether you have an expanding family or occasional overnight guests, bunk beds offer a practical solution — and they’re fun.

To see how well they really work, I tried out a few from the comfort of my bedroom and living room — both of which need a refresh, if not an entirely new look. Some were trickier to use than others, but each one offers a glimpse at the future of online furniture shopping and interior design.

A calendar of standout events at the city’s annual design festival.

Apple’s latest operating system for iPhones and iPads rolled out on Sept. 19 along with a flurry of new apps that leverage Apple’s new augmented reality development platform. Houzz, the home renovation and design site, was among them, with a new version of its 3-D shopping feature, “View in My Room 3D,” which lets you immediately place three-dimensional images of furniture, for free.

The style quiz, which determined I was a “mod enthusiast,” was fairly spot on: “You go for Danish Modern design and streamlined furniture, but incorporating some traditional pieces for comfort strikes the perfect balance.”

If all you want is to get an idea of how a specific piece of furniture will look in your room, Houzz is a good, fast option. For those who want to play around with different looks, Hutch will help you do that for free. For those of us who want more hand-holding while decorating a room, Modsy is a solid, low-cost alternative to seeing an interior designer in person.

Jacqui Wimberly, a Modsy publicist, pointed out that the style editor is an experiment. “There was such a high demand from customers to be able to make changes on their own that Modsy decided to release it in the beta state while they continue to work on a full-fledged editing feature,” she said.

(Ikea, Wayfair and others rolled out similar features in the App Store with Apple’s latest operating system. Wayfair’s version also works on devices supported by Tango, Google’s augmented reality platform.)

Seeing the images at scale removes the guesswork involved in figuring out whether that coffee table will actually fit in your cramped living room. You can also now walk up to that coffee table to get a better sense of its texture. Multiple items can be viewed at once on the screen, with each automatically added to a shopping list so you don’t have to leave the app to buy. Just don’t try to virtually hang a ceiling lamp in your room. The app does not yet support ceiling lamps in 3-D.

In the end it didn’t matter, as the Modsy designer I reached via the service bell icon was willing to swap it out for me.

A few of the categories, including side tables, table lamps and chairs, only offered one option: sold by Hutch, all of which were out of stock. And for nontraditional spaces, you may have to use your imagination or try a couple of different angles before you find a filter that fits your layout.

The first bedroom design had a similar layout to my current setup, replacing my simple teak bedroom set with a Tate upholstered bed (from Crate & Barrel) and Culla night stands (from Article) for a “soft midcentury look,” according to Modsy’s design description, which was emailed to me when the renderings were finished.

While using the bell service was a breeze, I found the “style editor” a bit clunky. It was not available on my phone. And when I tried to swap out a piece of art in my living room design using my laptop, I encountered a glitch that did not allow me to scroll down to see more options. As a result, I could access only a handful of alternative artworks, none of which appealed to me.
