About the Client

Lotari is a Polish company that offers high-quality products: blinds, roller blinds, wallpapers, and more. Moreover, the brand also sells original interior accessories, such as posters or frames, which complement the home arrangement.

Lotari has been using a Magento 1-based website for a couple of years. However, with time, the software couldn’t meet the client’s needs and required refreshing. 

Logo Elasticsearch

The client wanted a scalable, secure system that would keep up with the introduction of new products and improvements. The goal was to fit the store into current trends and maintain a timeless color scheme. Due to the addition of product personalization to the offer, the client expected the existing configurator to be refreshed as well.

Lotari - the goal
Background element

Lotari was satisfied with the Magento platform. Thus, the company wanted to continue working on it. To make that possible, a Magento upgrade from version 1 to actively supported v. 2.x was necessary.

Due to vast differences in Magento 1 and 2 structure, the migration is not a typical upgrade like in many platforms. It resembles an e-commerce development from scratch. The process requires, e.g., adjusting the theme or rewriting modules incompatible with M2.

Lotari migration required a lot of work due to the numerous custom modules and functions included in Magento 1. Moreover, we were responsible for the new graphic design and its implementation, now showing the brand’s modern character and enabling intuitive navigation through the website.

Thanks to that integration, customers can choose between millions of high-quality graphics in the Adobe Stock catalog to print.

Product configurator

Product Configurator

Lotari has already used the product configurator on the Magento 1-based online store. Our team modernized the obsolete solution so that it enables better product personalization. The new configurator allows for:

  • putting photos on blinds, pillows, pictures, and wallpapers prints;
  • adding effects (alignment, reflection, pattern duplication);
  • selecting product size;
  • choosing fabric and accessories.

We wrote a custom module that generates print visualization on a particular product. Thanks to that, customers can see an illustrative view of the product before the purchase.

Custom solutions made the shop as streamlined as possible

Lotari customers can now enjoy the new website layout and facilitated purchase process while administrators can safely introduce further improvements. The main changes we introduced were:
