Mood boards went from analog to virtual cutting, clipping, and pasting with the help of the mobile app Morpholio Board (macOS and iOS, free with in-app purchases), released originally in 2014. Today, the app’s namesake creator, a New York–based team of designers-turned-software developers, announced a new version of Board for the desktop—specifically, Mac computers running MacOS Catalina.

Board for Mac shares the same “key features of its app,” according to Morpholio’s press release. Users can comb through virtual libraries containing thousands of furnishings and products to aggregate on virtual pin-up boards. Supplied in collaboration with major manufacturers, such as Herman Miller and Porcelanosa, and with emerging and boutique companies, such as Uhuru Design and Wallshoppe, the selected product and accessory images can then be arranged on boards and silhouetted with a magic wand tool that eliminates white backdrops.
