Miss Amara is a small family business that strives to deliver an exceptional, uncomplicated and most of all enjoyable journey for the customer who is in search of their perfect rug.
We're Amie, Aaron and Alex & I guess it's no secret, we love a good rug. (There are no secrets with family right?!).
Each of us have all tried to buy a rug (numerous times) at some point before Miss Amara came into existence. One of us (Alex) bought one, but two of us gave up! So what happened here? We all started the same - enthusiastic, excited, picturing our dreamy rug with star studded eyes... But then somewhere along the way - something ruined it for us.
Maybe it was slogging it out to big warehouses and showrooms that left us tired and lost. Maybe it was the never ending closing down sales, (by the way - WHAT is with that?!). Or was it the endless searching, mouse points and clicks?
Needless to say it left us exhausted, and the dream of the shiny new rug seemed not like such a good idea after all.
Miss Amara exists to inspire, entertain and delight you. Sure - we love that we can build and grow a company that does things differently, but at the end of the day our customers are at the heart of our business.
So if we can continue to add value, to educate and encourage customers to create more living spaces that inspire happiness - well then, we've achieved our purpose ;)
We want to help! At Miss Amara, we're changing the way that people shop for rugs.
Firstly, we want to keep the buying process online. Coming from a strong technology background, you should know that we're strong believers in e commerce. It's speedy, efficient and convenient - (door to door - who doesn't love that!) and we strongly believe it gives customers the best end to end experience.
BUT WE UNDERSTAND THAT A RUG IS A BIG PURCHASE (quite literally, some of our rugs measure in at 3x4 meters!).
So we want to give customers all the confidence (and more) that comes with the "face to face" (or rather face to rug) experience.
