the story

Launched in 2014, Laurel & Wolf make adulting easy. The company hires a massive team of freelance interior designers who personally pick out great furniture within your budget using the photo of the room uploaded.

why we like it

Because getting a real designer is, frankly, quite intimidating. Think about it. If I told you to hire a designer, what would you do? Post “designer wanted” on Craigslist?

It’s tough and kind of scary. Plus, hiring an independent designer can be a bit of a risk, and terribly expensive.

With Laurel & Wolf, all you do is upload photos of your room. Then a short while later, you’re getting hand-picked recommendations on decor that fits your budget, style, and space perfectly.

Your social anxiety, and cohabitants, will thank you.

the competition

A few of these have popped up lately. For example, there’s Havenly, which has a few slight differences. Or, if you prefer, try Houzz, which will let you do it all for free.
