Interior Designers Could Do with Monetization of Inspiration Board Platforms
Kabuni takes cues from Pinterest yet brings the moodboard model into the retail sphere by introducing a shoppable feature
The interior design world to many consumers can seem both intimidating and unaffordable, which is one of the reasons why inspiration platforms such as Pinterest have done so well. Now Kabuni aims to take this concept one step further by integrating e-commerce within the one platform so users can enjoy the home improvement process in a seamless, simple way.
Once the app is downloaded, users can browse through thousands of boards provided by emerging studios and brands. Kabuni’s carefully chosen network of home and interior designers offer detailed portfolios and consult and curate prospective customer’s inspiration boards at no cost, which eliminates the stress of approaching studios that would usually charge large fees at initial consultation phase. Customers can then directly purchase products from the boards with a percentage of the profit going directly to the design professional. They can then use the app to track how much income they’re making directly from the platform, using it as an incentive to post more frequently and connect with as many consumers as possible.
