The IMVU Catalog offers designs for every taste, but if you want to add a personal touch to your room, this is your starting point for creating furniture with your own custom look. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to make your own version of IMVU’s Tutorial Couch.
Let’s dive in and make your first piece of furniture. After you have learned how to customize an existing furniture item, we will show you how to start from scratch.
1. Getting the Required Textures
For this tutorial, we will be deriving from the Tutorial Couch.
To get the textures required to make your own version of the Tutorial Sofa, click here to open the product page. You will see the links for the different texture downloads.
The textures should now be downloaded to your Downloads folder or to any other folder you selected.
2. Customizing Your Textures
Once you have the images, you can make the texture your own by customizing them in your preferred image-editing software! We have provided tutorials for two popular applications, Photoshop and GIMP.

3. Creating Your Product
Once you have completed customizing your textures, it’s time to create your very own version of the Tutorial Sofa by importing and applying your customized textures in IMVU Studio!
Once the product has loaded, apply your customized textures.
After the texture is uploaded, you can preview how your sofa looks like.
Once you are happy with the result, you just need to edit the product information (thumbnail, product name, category, search keywords, and more) that will show up in the Shop.
After submitting your product to the Shop, a message indicating that the submission has been successful pops up.
CONGRATULATIONS! You have derived your first furniture!
