Household furniture retail sales have benefited from increased consumer purchases as new and existing home demand rebounded. This market is expected to strengthen further during 2015 due to stronger gains for employment and personal income. Chains and big boxes have benefited from these trends as cautious consumers continue to seek out value retailers to purchase home furnishings.
