Furniture/Today's exclusive report lists 30 online home furnishings retailers and flash sales sites in alphabetical order.
This list is by no means comprehensive. Many more than the 30 Internet retailers listed here are strong players within the home furnishings industry and online channel. This report does not rank companies, nor does it feature furniture retailers who have both a brick-and-mortar and online presence, such as Rooms To Go, Walmart and Williams-Sonoma.
All sales figures and ranges are Furniture/Today market research estimates and are for total 2013 sales, which may include revenues from the sale of products other than furniture, bedding and decorative accessories. Where possible, the percentage of sales from furniture, bedding and decorative accessories is given. Furniture/Today chooses not to include some companies due to lack of verification of revenue figures.
Furniture/Today compiled this report by surveying online furniture retailers, researching business newspaper archives and speaking with furniture industry insiders. Information was gathered, compiled and analyzed by Furniture/Today's research department.
