Ideas to Make Your Furniture Standout in Interior Renderings

Interior designs can be tricky because you need to find the balance between an accessible, welcoming space and something with a bit of style. If you’re too generic or bland, then no one cares. But if you’re too imaginative, then you’ll turn off people with more conservative tastes.

One way to work around this challenge is to mix in a few pieces of furniture or decor that standout, but keep the room pretty simple overall. We’ve pulled together some videos to give you ideas for modeling and rendering interior furniture with a bit of character.
