This report updates Furniture Today’s biennial Upholstery Terminology Fabric and Style Survey for 2019. Each store’s 2018 unit sales of upholstery were used as the basis for the market share data. Contacted during
October, retailers based responses for different styles and fabric covers in stationary sofas, motion sofas and reclining chairs at low, middle, upper-middle and high price points.
The findings contained in this report are qualitative in nature. They are derived from a small sample of respondents and should not be projected in numeric terms to larger populations. As such, the findings are directional and should be considered descriptive rather than explanatory. The survey was conducted and analyzed by Furniture Today’s Strategic Insights team.
