Direct-to-consumer home decor brand Revival Rugs needed an innovative way to help shoppers navigate through their catalogue of thousands of one-of-a-kind products. Founded in 2017 as an online-only brand devoted to sourcing unique vintage rugs from around the world, Revival Rugs began importing and restoring rugs from Turkey, Morocco, and India. They quickly made a name for themselves as the destination for finding decor as individual as each of their customers.

The D2C sensation has since grown to include a curated collection of home furnishings, tabletop items, and textiles, though rugs remain their core business. With over 6,000 SKUs in their inventory at any given time, Revival Rugs is laser-focused on creating an easy-to-navigate, delightful online experience.

Helping Each Customer Find Their Perfect Rug

With so many unique styles in stock and just one of each item, Revival Rugs understood they needed a way to help shoppers easily find the rugs that align with their design vision. After observing screen recordings of users navigating through their site, the brand quickly gravitated towards visual search as a potential solution that would complement the visual nature of home decor shopping. However, not just any technology would suit their needs.

Revival Rugs needed a visual AI solution that would:

  • Have the vertical expertise required to ensure accurate search results for rugs
  • Provide a premium customer experience for shoppers
  • Be easy to implement for their lean team
  • Include ongoing support and a dedicated customer success manager
