Furniture, bedding and accessories sales for the nation's largest furniture stores jumped a healthy 8.3% last year despite a few multi-million-dollar hits taken by some of the biggest players. Furniture/Today's exclusive top 100 listing ranks furniture stores by sales of furniture, bedding and decorative accessories, including fabric and furniture protection and warranties. To qualify, a retailer must specialize in home furnishings. The mix may include electronics, appliances, home textiles, tabletop and other home furnishings, but furniture, bedding and decorative accessories must account for 25% or more of total sales. Also, at least 25% of a retailer's furniture, bedding and decorative accessory sales must come from its stores.
