Big Layout Data is a startup that develops a smart furniture selection widget and layout system.

What the company does:
They use a database of layouts and artificial intelligence libraries to combine furniture from local stores into sets that fit the layout, budget and taste of the user.

What does the user get?

  • A layout of his apartment at his address;
  • A list of furniture and other items in the chosen budget and style;
  • A layout of the items on the user’s layout;
  • A visualization of the future interior on the wiseboard.

How is Big Layout Data different from room planners?
They provide a ready-made solution, you don’t need to draw the layout, we already have it, you don’t need to make a furniture list – we do it for you, you don’t need to look for availability in stores – everything is in stock.

Andrejs Hmelovs and Elena Hmelovs are founders of Big Layout Data. The company is incubated at Microsoft for Startups and IN5, which is located in Dubai Internet City in Dubai, UAE.
