Kabuni founder and CEO Neil Patel aptly describes his company as a “Pinterest meets Amazon” hybrid. The new Vancouver-based interior design business melds two key components—an app and a bricks-and-mortar workspace—to simplify the experience of redecorating a home. Currently, the Kabuni app allows users to peruse and create mood boards of approximately 60,000 products made by designers across North America—that’s the “Pinterest” part. The “Amazon” element? Each item can be purchased and delivered to one’s doorstop. To further grease the skids on any home-improvement project, Kabuni also connects clients with interior designers, who can offer guidance and have access to the company’s 480-square-foot Dream Room, where they may place 3-D holographic decor items around a virtual home—all the better to visualize the real finished product. Streamlined design, indeed.
