SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- myWebRoom, a platform for creating and designing visual collections of products, websites and people in uniquely personalized WebRooms, today announced the launch of myWebRoom Shop. Whether for their online WebRoom or actual home, Shop makes it easy for people to discover, tryout and now purchase items from a growing selection of thousands of handpicked products from dozens of the best consumer brand names.

A new kind of shopping experience, myWebRoom's enhanced Shop offers trending information, featured stores, as well as professionally designed and curated collections of goods for you and your home. In a seamless and social way users can also see how the broader community has embraced or used products. Best of all myWebRoom enables anyone to try out and live with the hottest new products for free in their WebRoom before deciding to make a purchase for their home.

"Shop, along with our WebRoom creative Designer Tool, now helps people export their personally styled online spaces directly into real life," commented Artem Fedyaev, co-founder and co-CEO of myWebRoom. "There are already over 2.8 million different WebRoom variations, customized with products from dozens of stylish brands.

myWebRoom is not just a step forward in vision board development. It's a platform for creating, assembling and organizing your online experience in a way that can express your unique style today, as well as the lifestyle you aspire to for tomorrow. The virtual objects within a WebRoom are clickable and intuitive gateways to Web services, content and social connection. Once personalized, your WebRoom's Dorian Bookcase, for example, can link to the New Yorker or Audible.com. The television can connect you to frequently enjoyed entertainment services like Hulu, YouTube or Netflix. Even the map on the wall can link to travel sites like Kayak.

Available through myWebRoom's creative Designer Tool, and directly through Web search, myWebRoom Shop inspires your personal sense of style with a unique shopping experience, where you can discover and live with products you love, even before you buy them. myWebRoom Shop features include:

  • PRODUCTS: Each clickable product in a WebRoom has a retail page that includes two options: "See It In My Room," which enables you to try out any products for free in your WebRoom, or "Buy," where you can make any myWebRoom product your very own at home. Along with photos and descriptions, there are links to social sharing, the online seller, related collections, and recommendations.
  • TRENDING: Photos and links make it easy to locate the most popular and newly added products, as well as the hottest items trending across myWebRoom. Editor's picks are also painstakingly identified weekly by interior designers and other trend and fashion influencers.

  • COLLECTIONS: Collections are handpicked and curated sets of products related to specific themes. Collections make it simple for new users to get helpful recommendations on products and styles.

myWebRoom also provides unique insight into how users interact with products. Further, it lets consumer brands find meaningful new ways to enable potential customers to experience their goods.
