About the data
In this exclusive report, Furniture Today presents the most detailed consumer information available on case goods furniture buying. The consumer data originates from the responses of 2,528 U.S. households to an online survey conducted in February 2017. On a product-by-product basis, U.S. households told Furniture Today what furniture they shopped for last year, what they actually purchased, how much they spent and what types of furniture they plan to buy in 2017. Because of the sample size and a respondent profile closely matching the demographics of all U.S. households, survey data can be projected nationally with a margin of error of plus or minus 2%.
