Amazon sells thousands of home furnishings, including couches, carpets, chairs and tables. Finding out which ones are suitable for your living room can be a daunting task.

But this week Amazon quietly rolled out Amazon Showroom, a tool that lets you place furniture in a virtual living room, making online furniture shopping more visual.

With Amazon Showroom, you can swap out different pieces of furniture to see how they look in a room or as a set.

The result is a photorealistic rendering of a room that answers the question: 'How will this all look together?' It is currently being tested on Amazon.com and in the Amazon App for home furnishings for the living room.
