About the data
Furniture/Today’s exclusive report, Beyond the Top 100, lists 100 furniture stores that are significant players in their respective markets. All sales figures and ranges are Furniture/Today estimates and are for total 2015 store sales, which may include revenues from the sale of products other than furniture, bedding and decorative accessories, such as consumer electronics and major appliances. Where possible, the percentage of sales from case goods, upholstery, bedding and decorative accessories is given. All sales figures and store counts are for the calendar year 2015. This list is by no means comprehensive. Many more than the 100 furniture stores listed here are vital retailers within theircommunities. This survey does not rank companies, nor is it a continuation of the Top 100 U.S. Furniture Stores, which published in the May 16, 2016, issue. Furniture/ Today chooses not to include some companies due to lack of verification of sales figures. Furniture/Today compiled this report by surveying retailers, researching business newspaper archives and speaking with furniture industry insiders. Information was gathered, compiled and analyzed by Furniture/Today’s research team.
