It is a useful free tool that you can use when working with your customer on arranging their living room. With this tool, you can easily configure a sofa or a corner sofa in line with your customer’s expectations. Thanks to the creator, you do not need to rely on ready furniture configurations — instead, you can design a sofa or a corner sofa featuring e.g. a modern U-letter shape, a liquor cabinet, the relaxation function, and an electrically controlled seat.
Main advantages of the creator:
ability to plan the space with perfect accuracy down to one centimetre — which is particularly important in the arrangement of rooms having untypical dimensions or shapes,
the ability to check if a piece of furniture in the selected configuration will fit in the room, taking into account the minimum distance required between the wall and a piece of furniture with the relaxation function,
confidence that all functions will work smoothly in the configured furniture (e.g. the sleeping function or the relaxation function) — the creator informs you what module combinations are acceptable.

NOTE: The Gala Collezione 2D Creator was designed as a web application for computers or laptops with the Windows operating system. We recommend using the Mozilla or Chrome browsers. In order for the creator to work correctly, the browser window must be maximized.
Furniture configuration process in the 2D Creator:
Stage 1 — drawing the room where the furniture is to be placed.
By determining the dimensions of the room, you define the scale according to which the furniture will be designed — the system will choose the size to match the room dimensions.
Stage 2 — marking “obstructions”, e.g. cabinet furniture, flower pots, pillars supporting the ceiling, doors, partition walls, etc.
Stage 3 — selection of a Gala Collezione modular system and the actual configuration
The designing process is simple — all you need to do is indicate the modules that you want to incorporate into your arrangement. The Creator will inform you on a current basis what blocks can be combined together for their functions to work smoothly.
Stage 4 — printing a summary
When you have finished the design, you can print a summary for your customer containing a drawing of the configured sofa/corner sofa and specifications of all selected modules. With the summary, the customer can visit a selected furniture showroom and order a piece of furniture with the selected configuration on the spot.
VIEW AT HOME
An alternative to the 2D Creator is the free View at Home application intended for users of phones and tablets with Android or iOS. You can use it when creating an interior design for your customers.
How can View at Home help you in your work with customers?
Before you start preparing a room visualisation, you and your customer can “try out” many different pieces of furniture. All you need is a mobile device (tablet or smartphone). Thanks to the AR (Augmented Reality) technology, you can show the customer what the piece of furniture that you selected or configured together will look like in the room — at 1:1 scale.
If the customer has not seen the furniture “live” or if this is impossible because it is not exhibited in the furniture showroom, you can show your customer a 3D visualisation of a selected armchair, sofa or corner sofa. A 3D visualisation enables your customer to see the object from all sides (front, back, side, etc.), also with the functions unfolded.
With the 3D configurator, you and your customer will be able to configure a piece of furniture using elements of the modular system selected by the customer. You can freely change the features and the arrangement of the units until the furniture fully meets the customer’s expectations as to the shape, size, upholstery colour, and leg colour.
When you have completed the furniture configuration process, you can generate a summary for your customer that can be used to place an order with a furniture showroom.
