When Cora co-founder, Sara, was decorating her apartment, it was frustrating process that included 30+ website and 10+ brick & mortar store visits, 5 returns and 60+ hours of searching and comparing. As Sara’s project was coming to a close, her family members’ house was hit by a tornado. Along with their house, almost all of their belongings were destroyed. Over the next year, Sara watched her family use all their spare time to decide and purchase replacements.
The sticking point for Sara's family was furniture, which must be paired together and compared across sites and stores. Although an extreme example, it is a painful process to find the smartest options available, for your unique aesthetic, from the overwhelming 2,300 online furniture sites in the U.S. Most critically, this led to massive time lost.
Sara’s passion for building digital experiences, love of design, 100s of consumer & business interviews and 5 High Point Market attendances were the basis of finding a solution to this overwhelming problem. She teamed up with co-founder / CTO, Chris Vuletich, who like Sara, loves creating digital solutions that people love.
