Augmented reality (AR) shopping is a trend that is quickly catching on, and Williams-Sonoma has become the latest major home furnishing company to jump on that bandwagon with the Friday report that it will purchase San Jose-based 3-D scanning company Outward.

Earlier in 2017, Outward created 3D Room View for Pottery Barn, owned by Williams-Sonoma, an AR app that lets users put 3-D models of furniture in images of the rooms in their home. It’s a new method of “try before you buy” that means shoppers may never have to leave their homes. It looks like this may be coming to Williams-Sonoma, known mostly for its wide array of kitchen furnishings, in the near future.
