“Patio Playground provides users with a new way to find design inspiration,” said Wayfair co-chairman and co-founder Steve Conine in a statement. “Virtual reality is a truly transformative discovery platform, and we are excited to harness this technology as we continue to deliver an exceptional shopping experience.”

The app is available for free through the Oculus Rift Experiences store.
