Isn’t it frustrating to search for fabrics or wallpapers? The sheer number of available patterns is overwhelming, and the lack of a cohesive way to identify similar patterns is enough to drive anyone crazy.
And, what if you see a pattern on the web that you like, but can’t find any information on it? Or if you have a discontinued pattern and need to find a substitute?
We have a solution.
We have just launched a recognition technology that let you find pattern quickly and easily, as well as identify new ones.
Simply put, you can pull up a pattern from our site, or anywhere in the web, and we will show you all the patterns that are similar to it.
What if you like a color within the pattern, and want to find coordinating patterns with that color? No problem!
Or, what if you like the style of the pattern, and want to see more of it? You can do that.
See below for an illustration:
First, pull up a pattern, any pattern from our site. Or, if you see it from anywhere else, right click on the image and copy the url of that image, then go to our search box and type:
Like: xxxx (xxx being the URL you just copy over-see illustration at the bottom of this page).
Let’s look first at one of the pattern found on our fabric store.
There are several pages of results and you can scroll through hundred of patterns.
To search for image from anywhere on the web, follow the instructions below:
Go to the image that you found. Right click on the image and it will give you the option called “COPY IMAGE URL”.
For example we use this pattern found on Pinterest. By right click on it (using Google Chrome) we get this URL:
We then type this in the search box of Inside Fabric or InsideWallpaper:
You’ll see the results below. Your pattern is found!
You’ll see that this is a very efficient way to search for patterns, especially if you are in the discovery mode. It’ll let you find results that you probably haven’t thought of, and find coordinating/matching patterns quickly.
We hope you’ll enjoy using this tool. Please let us know if you have any feedback or need any assistance.
