Carpets and Floorcoverings - UK - March 2012
“Tomorrow’s flooring retailers will need to be more compelling places to shop, give a better customer experience and create a source of inspiration for people wanting to create the best results for their interiors. We expect to see more design literate sales people and more imaginative ways of illustrating the way that carpets and flooring can influence the look of a room.”
– Neil Mason, Head of Retail Research
