What we do

Cora’s to-the-trade marketplace & industry-specific business management tools are created to give designers & vendors relevant alternatives to the industry status quo.

By providing new, more efficient solutions to traditionally cumbersome processes, such as trade account applications, creating quotes, managing members of your organization, and navigating unruly sales channels, our goal is to lessen your load without sacrificing integrity.

By removing barriers that have long existed in the interior design industry, your potential for growth is now limitless.

How we’re different

Unlike other sales channels, Cora will never be the middleman between designers & vendors, only the conduit to support direct, unobstructed communication and relationships.

We always have your growth in mind, and offer vendors a fair commission structure and designers the best pricing when possible.We champion vendors & designers of all shapes, sizes, price points and budgets, not just the .01%.

We welcome both trade and retail vendors in order to provide designers with an experience of the way they actually want to shop today.
