John-Richard has recreated a true High Point Market experience with a 3D web-based virtual tour. Viewers will be able to move seamlessly from room to room to discover John-Richard’s collections; furniture, artisan-crafted accessories, lighting, mirrors, art, botanicals and upholstery. The tour utilizes the latest technologies which allow for a high-quality 3D capture, creating a realistic user experience.
On the virtual tour, you can navigate from room to room by using navigation circles either by touching your screen with your finger on a tablet or phone, or by using your mouse when on a computer. From any position you can turn 360 degrees to view everything, zoom out to view room or zoom in to see a close-up of one product. When you view the floor plan option you can choose which labeled rooms to go to, and this tool also allows you to exit and return later to the tour. The measurement mode will be of particular interest to designers as this will provide a ruler tool that allows you to measure both the room and one or multiple pieces in it.
“With the absence of a proper market, our customers will be excited to see our product in the context of our beautiful showroom,” states Alan Galbraith, President of John-Richard. “We are the first port of call for many of our customers each market as they view us as a company that sets trends and always has exciting new products attractively displayed. I think that our virtual tour will give them additional creative energy and inspiration in these more challenging times.
While virtually visiting the showroom, users will be able to view John-Richard’s new collections which include new traditional furniture, dramatic and glamorous lighting, martini tables with organic accents, large sculptural accessories, tall trees, modern, subtle geometric patterns on casegoods, pieces in warmer beige tones as well as subtle silver tones.
