Who can use Canoa?

Some people have said 'I'm not a designer, can I still use Canoa?' At Canoa, we believe that good design should be accessible to anyone; and to make that possible, we are building the tools that make interior design accessible to everyone. So whether you' architect, designer or decorator; work in commercial, hospitality, residential or construction; handle specifications or procurement; represent brands; manufacture furniture; design your own personal spaces; or just learning or exploring...

Canoa may have something to help you create and collaborate.

Getting started

You can sign-up for free with a Starter account or you can select another account tier here. Also, you can click on the Sign Up button found at the top right of our home page.

Account Tiers

We offer several different account options depending on your design needs. As you upgrade beyond our Starter account on the Team page, you'll unlock additional platform features. See here for current pricing.

  • Starter: Our free account for individuals who want to superpower their design process. You'll be able to create a limited number of Canvas mood boards, share your Canvas to those you'd like to collaborate with, access our database of products and brands, and get started with our design templates.

  • Pro: Great for individuals and teams working across projects & clients. If you'd like to add a team member to work within a shared account, then Canoa Pro is for you. You will incur a nominal amount per user per month to unlock a private workspace, create additional Canvas boards, access our Catalogs and Projects features, and take part in our beta developments.

  • Studio: For teams of all sizes working across projects & clients. As your team grows, you'll need an account with less constraints so you can design freely. For a nominal amount per user per month, Canoa Studiio unlocks those constraints. You'll have all of the features available with a Pro account but can create an unlimited number of Canvas boards and have an increase in custom products you can create in your Catalog. You'll also have access to upgraded features in our beta developments.

  • Enterprise: For medium & large studios with custom needs. Good design is never a one-size-fits-all approach. Our Enterprise tier recognizes that you may need a customized approach for your team. We can work with you to set up a system that is tailored for how you work.
