Figure 1 : Left: Initial layout where furniture pieces are placed arbitrarily. Middle and right: Two synthesized furniture arrangements optimized to satisfy ergonomic criteria, such as unobstructed accessibility and visibility, required of a realistic furniture configuration. Abstract We present a system that automatically synthesizes indoor scenes realistically populated by a variety of furniture objects. Given examples of sensibly furnished indoor scenes, our system extracts, in advance,

To deal with the prohibitively large search space, the cost function is optimized by simulated annealing using a Metropolis-Hastings state search step. We demonstrate that our system can synthesize multiple realistic furniture arrangements and, through a perceptual study, investigate whether there is a significant difference in the perceived functionality of the automatically synthesized results relative to furniture arrangements produced by human designers.
