Removing the guesswork from home design

SPREE SUCCESS STORY

 

Scout & Nimble is the world’s premier online marketplace for shoppable designer rooms and home décor. The company was founded by Jesse and Sam Bodine in 2013, a husband–wife team. What started out as a blog by Jesse in 2011 evolved into a successful home decor business extended to designers, stylists, and customers around the United States.

 

In addition to being an online home décor and furniture retailer, Scout & Nimble also provides their trade customers — interior designers — with designer tools and resources that allow them to grow and scale their business through brand awareness. Through the website, visitors can shop by designer, by “shoppable room,” or by item.

“We’ve had an amazing amount of growth this year. We’ve really had to control our growth in designers to provide excellent customer service.” – Jesse Bodine

Shoppable designer curated rooms

 

Scout & Nimble is a social commerce platform that works with interior designers to curate shoppable rooms utilizing the available software & products. Since it’s an online marketplace, everything is customizable for the consumer. They’re able to shop by room, designer portfolios, color, product, etc., all to fit their particular needs and interests.

 

Interior designers, decorators and design bloggers, who are all key influencers in this industry, create shoppable room designs using the unique room building software and products so that consumers can shop with confidence and purchase items from a room put together by perhaps one of their favorites, all without the cost of the designer.

Not only does Scout & Nimble allow designers to showcase their work in the form of shoppable rooms, but it also provides them with the e-design tools to help them scale and grow their business.
