Interactive Furniture Layout Using Interior Design Guidelines

Paul Merrell, Eric Schkufza, Zeyang Li, Maneesh Agrawala, Vladlen Koltun


We present an interactive furniture layout system that assists users by suggesting furniture arrangements that are based on interior design guidelines. Our system incorporates the layout guidelines as terms in a density function and generates layout suggestions by rapidly sampling the density function using a hardware-accelerated Monte Carlo sampler. Our results demonstrate that the suggestion generation functionality measurably increases the quality of furniture arrangements produced by participants with no prior training in interior design.

System overview. In response to user manipulation, our system suggests new arrangements that respect user-specified constraints and follow interior design guidelines.
