Covered in this report

- Living and dining room furniture
- Bedroom furniture, including beds and mattresses

“The furniture market remains robust, as resilient consumer confidence, the return of real wage growth and a rise in new households maintained spending even as housing transactions cooled for a second year. The industry is dominated by furniture specialists but stores are taking an increasingly intermediary role as consumers migrate online at the start and end of the purchasing journey. However, the clouds of Brexit and growing confidence in making big-ticket purchases exclusively online sit on the horizon.”

This report will look at the following areas:
- Some consumers appear increasingly willing to complete big-ticket purchases exclusively online
