Top 3 Stylish 3D Model Sites
Here are some sites that have stylishly designed 3D models and websites.
No. 1: Viz People

On this site, graphic designers, photographers, makeup artists, and musicians work together with 3D modelers to create the contents.
As a result, the quality and color schemes are reproduced as if they were photographed, and a wide range of products are available from furniture to HDRI photos and music.
The number of 3D models available is small, but they are stylish and of high quality.
