With Cora, you can instantly search 100s of furniture sites at once to easily find shoppable products based on images you love. Users upload a photo or choose from our library and Cora delivers precise matches through the use of proprietary computer vision (artificial intelligence) algorithms. The website is free for consumers and will soon connect interior designers (monthly fee) and wholesalers (listing fees). Cora is delivering a shopping and search experience that saves time while ensuring you never have to settle.
You shouldn’t have to sift through 10+ pages of a website to find the perfect piece. Instead, you should be able to instantly filter to personally relevant options based on your unique style.
The answer to FOMO is not more time and effort. Instead, you should feel confident you chose the best product without looking at every option.
You should be able to easily re-create the room in that picture you found online.
There are amazing (and often better) furniture options outside Google’s top search results.
No more feeling overwhelmed by options – decorating your home should be fun!

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.
