Design Is Not Just What It Looks Like. Design Is How It Works.

Egowall gives you the tools to create a rich online environment which best represents your real self - one that anyone can visit at any time.

To do so, we provide you with access to 16 unique 3D living spaces as well as hundreds of custom furniture items (available in several styles).

In this blog post, we want to provide some information on how to manage those furniture assets with the spaces via the following short videos and accompanying text.

In the subsections below we will be discussing the following:

  • Placing Furniture Objects

  • Cloning Furniture Objects

  • Removing Furniture Objects


Placing Furniture Objects

"Placing” refers to the act of placing a 3D furniture object in a legal location (i.e., one allowed by the game's physics) within a room.

To place a furniture object follow these steps:

  1. Click the Inventory button at lower left of the user interface.

  2. Using the available drop down menus, navigate to the desired Theme / Furniture type (e.g., Contemporary | Seating).

  3. Click on one of the furniture objects to display its Furniture Detail Panel.

  4. Click the Add to Space button, which highlights the Move button on the Palette Menu and opens the Grid Snapping Menu.

  5. Click on the desired Grid Snapping resolution (Large/Medium/Small/Off).

  6. Place the object by moving the cursor to the desired destination spot and clicking there.

  7. After initial placement, you can tweak the location of the object by

    • clicking-and-dragging on the X, Y, or Z axis arrows to move the object along those axes, OR

    • clicking on the cube in the center of the X/Y/Z axis arrows and dragging to move the object freely in the space.

  8. Once you've settled on the final position for the object, click anywhere in the UI to place it; that action will clear the arrows and the Grid Snapping menu. The Move button remains selected.

Cloning Furniture Objects

We make it easy for you when you want to place a second (or third, or …) copy of a particular furniture piece in a room. You can quickly pull from inventory or buy one on the spot if you don’t already own one.

To clone/duplicate a furniture object placed in the currently occupied room, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Clone button on the Palette Toolbar or type the "c"/"C" shortcut key.

  2. Click on the desired object.

  3. If you already own at least one more unplaced instance of the selected object

    • Click on the desired Grid Snapping resolution (Large/Medium/Small/Off)  

    • Move the cursor away from the selected object and a copy of it (pulled from your existing inventory) will appear

    • Click on the spot where you want to place the cloned object

    • After initial placement, if you want to tweak the location of the placed object, you can do so by

      • clicking-and-dragging on the X, Y, or Z axis arrows to move the object along that axis, OR

      • clicking on the cube in the center of the X/Y/Z axis arrows to move the object freely in the space

    • Once you've settled on the proper position for the object, click anywhere in the UI to place it, which will also clear the arrows and the Grid Snapping menu.

  4. If you do not already own at least one more unplaced instance of the selected object

    • Click on the Buy Now button to purchase another instance of the object

    • Click on the Add to Space button

    • Click on the desired Grid Snapping resolution (Large/Medium/Small/Off)  

    • Click on the spot where you want to place the cloned object

    • After initial placement, if you want to tweak the location of the placed object, you can do so by

      • clicking-and-dragging on the X, Y, or Z axis arrows to move the object along that axis, OR

      • clicking on the cube in the center of the X/Y/Z axis arrows to move the object freely in the space

    • Once you've settled on the final position for the object, click anywhere in the UI to place it, which will also clear the arrows and the Grid Snapping menu.


Removing Furniture Objects

When it’s time to redecorate a room in your living space(s), you need a place for that old furniture. No need to turn to Goodwill. Just return any placed object to your inventory.

To remove a furniture object from a room follow these steps.

  1. Click on the Rebox button on the Palette Toolbar or type the "x"/"X" shortcut key.

  2. Click on the desired object. It will immediately be returned to inventory.

  3. Verify its return to inventory by clicking the Inventory button and using the available drop down menus to navigate to the object’s Theme / Furniture type.

What You Do After The Bear Eats You

"[S]ometimes you eat the bar, sometimes the bar eats you."

- The Stranger in The Big Lebowski (1998).

That's sort of what happened to us last week when there was so much going on that we were unable to complete our scheduled Most Popular on Instagram post.

But we're making up for that by highlighting two images (well, one image and one video) this time around - one for each of the last TWO weeks.

Week Ending November 6, 2016

This week's image (seen at right) was a diptych of our Contemporary Showroom 2 space.

This showroom style is a large urban spacethat is nearly 1.5 times the size of the Contemporary Showroom.

Its characteristics are as follows:

Theme: Contemporary
Rooms: 1
Square Footage: 6186
Cost: 400 Ego Points
Default Entry Room: Showroom

It includes a fully open floor with no walls or dividers, with a wide floor-to-ceiling window on the highway side of the space to allow entry of natural light.

And if you wish, you can use our construction tools to break this expansive area into smaller and more manageable areas.

Once you've designed and assembled your own showroom space, it's easy to make it (or any other type of living space) public so that any of your friends or family can visit.

We invite you to visit the Egowall Kitchen and Dining Showroom to get a better feel for what the Contemporary Showroom 2 looks like.

Week Ending November 13, 2016

One of the most popular playlists on our YouTube Channel is the list of ten videos which illustrate Egowall's key features.

One of them took the honor this week as our most engaged Instagram post.

By entering Customization Mode, Egowall users are able to change the physical appearance of nearly every surface in a living space.

After enabling this mode, just click on the area you wish to modify to select it.

Then use the scrollable Customization Menu to specify the new color or material for that surface. 

Click the Apply button and the change is immediate.

Lather, rinse, and repeat until you have made all your desired modifications.

We provide you with the canvas - it's up to you to complete the painting and make the space truly your own.

Don't forget to check out the rest of our Feature Videos to learn more about the power of Egowall to help you showcase your life's memories and achievements.


We're posting images (and videos) like these daily on Instagram (and Pinterest) to expose them - and Egowall - to a larger audience.

How Many Of These Videos Have YOU Seen?

In the coming weeks we are going to be publishing blog posts highlighting some of our favorite YouTube gaming accounts.

Before that, we thought it appropriate to showcase our own YouTube Channel and to provide an overview of the video content available for you there.

There's a lot of great information available to help you learn about Egowall - even before you sign up for a free account.

We have organized the videos in our Channel into the following playlists:

Living Space Previews

These short (less than 30 seconds) fly-throughs of most of the available Egowall living spaces are designed to give you a quick look at their design and layout.

A particular highlight is the Princess Castle (seen at left), which is a customized version of our Great Hall space.

Feature Instructions

Ten videos (20 seconds to 2 minutes in length) which provide an overview of Egowall's key feature capabilities. Included are:

  • Compose - Write public or private messages and drop them off while visiting other spaces.
  • Customization - Change the color and material of nearly any surface in a living space.
  • Fly Mode - Elevate the camera to get a different perspective on your living space (seen at right).

  • Fluorescent Abstract - joe creates colorful abstract art and then hangs it on his wall in a custom frame.

Put On The Ritz In Your Own Castle

Egowall offers its users sixteen living spaces spread across five different themes: General, Retro, Contemporary, SciFi and Castle.

Over the last couple of weeks, we have been sharing preview videos for each of these spaces from our YouTube Channel on Instagram.

These short video fly-throughs show the layout and look of a fully decorated space better than still images, and one of them - possibly the most unique of all - was our most popular Instagram post for the week of September 4-11, 2016.

The Great Hall (seen at right) is a medium-sized (3612 square feet) one room Castle-themed space.

Are you a collector of medieval or gothic furniture or other related home decor?

Or perhaps you're a fan of horror movies like Boris Karloff's Frankenstein or any of the scary films created by Universal Studios between the 1920s and 1950s.

Or maybe you just loved the late, great Gene Wilder's performance in Mel Brooks' classic Young Frankenstein. Sorry, Frahnk-un-steen.

(BTW, you will have one final opportunity to see Young Frankenstein in theaters next month.)

If any of these apply to you, the Great Hall is a perfect space for you to document and share these interests with your friends, family and colleagues.

Great Hall Living Space

But a Great Hall space does not have to be dark, dank or even scary.

Imagine using Egowall's customization tools to change the look to something a bit more child-friendly and then adding furniture and other decor from our kid's collection.

Well, you don't have to - we did.
