Chocofur is a new Blender oriented webshop that offers modern furniture models for sale, all ready to render in Cycles. The individual model packs sell for €24.95 (simple models are €4.90 each), but there is a choice of free models available as well.

After almost a year of intense work I would like to proudly announce Chocofur.
Chocofur is currently an on-line store with over a hundred paid and free furniture models created for Blender and Cycles rendering engine. Models are divided into 7 categories basing on their material (wood, steel, concrete etc.) but you can also get them separately as well.
One of the main purposes I had working on this project was the will to popularize Blender as an excellent tool for creating professional interior, furniture and architectural visualizations. With Cycles on board, I've been using Blender in my commercial works for almost two years. However, I've noticed one thing slowing me down for the most time and it was not the lack of any tools or special features Blender could have. The thing I really missed were professionally prepared 3d models and shaders I could just "drag and drop" to my scenes in order to save time and effort. That's when I thought about creating some furniture packs for me and perhaps other people too.
Right now Chocofur works only as a furniture models store, but in near future I plan to develop the website and add few tutorials for all the people that would like to improve their architecture/design rendering skills. I also plan to release other models like vegetation, cars etc.
I strongly recommend trying out free models you can find in the store. There are 14 different furnitures available separately or in packs (7 in each). If you can, please spread the word amongst other Blender users. I really look into your support in carrying this project in near future :)
