Home Furnishings Retailers

Home furnishings retail sales growth is strengthening once again in 2015 as employment and personal income increase at an accelerating rate. Home furnishings retailer sales have also outpaced furniture store sales growth as cautious consumers turned to low-cost furnishings to freshen up the look of their home over a period of economic uncertainty. Sales are also benefiting from the pick up in new home construction and existing home sales over the past few years. A purchase of a new or existing home stimulates the purchase of home furnishings.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Home Furnishings Retailers. This First Look also provides data on consumer purchases and retail sales of bedroom and bath linens, window coverings, kitchenware and bathware, and decorative accessories. In addition, competition from department stores, mass merchandisers, and other brick-and-click retailers is tracked. Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.
