LONDON, June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Traditionally, shopping for sofas has been reserved for that long bank holiday weekend you've been so looking forward to, or those lazy Sundays where traipsing around furniture stores with the kids eventually results in a purchase which you hope will fit within your budget. However, CSL-Sofas have gone all technological. They have brought sofa shopping into the 21st century by allowing you to simply browse online and then see exactly how your new sofa will look in your own living room, all by using your phone!
The recently launched CSL app is completely free and the perfect way to browse sofas while you are on the move. However, uniquely to this app, you can view your dream sofa using CSL's exclusive 'In Your Room' augmented reality feature. Have you ever wondered what your dream sofa your saw in store looked like in your living room before your could buy? If so, then this app answers that problem.
The features of the CSL app include access to 12,000 items in the sofa catalogue, access to the latest ranges with up to 50% off leather, fabric, corner group and recliner sofas, the CSL store locator which uses your phone's GPS, access to the express delivery range, and of course the 'In Your Room' facility using the latest augmented reality technology.
The free iPhone app was developed after the company directors decided they were onto something: "We believe that online shopping is the future, but as far as sofas are concerned, it is important that people can really visualise the sofa in their own living room to make sure that they are making the right choice," said a spokesman for CSL-Sofas. "Our iPhone app gives people the confidence to be able to browse online and then view their chosen sofa in their own living room, eliminating the need to visit stores or worry that a wrong choice has been made," he continued. "That means that if they are looking for an express delivery leather sofa, they can make their choice, quickly visualise it in their living room using our app, and then we will guarantee fast delivery!"
To use the app, you take a picture of your living room, or whatever room for which the item of furniture is intended. You can then select the furniture that sparks your interest and leave the software to merge both the furniture item and your photo to provide a realistic vision of how that exact furniture item will appear in your room.
"The app is completely free and has been designed to be exceptionally easy to use," said a member of senior management at CSL-Sofas. "It allows people to instantly see a real picture of their own living room with their potential new furniture already delivered and installed, all within seconds!"
CSL-Sofas offer fast delivery on your choice of leather sofas as well as a minimum of £500 off all sofas with their current special offer. You can download the app totally free from the App store right now and use it to browse, arrange delivery, pay balances and even earn money by recommending friends and family.
