This Key Note Market Update examines the household furniture industry in the UK. In 2011, it rose by 1.7%, following 3 years of decline, due to the impact of the 2008/2009 recession.

The domestic furniture industry is diverse. This report breaks down the market according to room type. The living room category is the largest sector and increased the most in value in 2011, growing by 2%. This is because it is where consumers spend the majority of their leisure time at home, regardless of whether they are relaxing or entertaining. Meanwhile, the dining room segment rose by 1.9%, as a result of increasing numbers of consumers choosing to entertain at home. The other three categories: bedroom, kitchen and other furniture segments, all grew by 1.4%, respectively. The is because Britons are increasingly choosing larger, more luxurious beds, in addition to statement pieces in their bedrooms, while consumers are also opting to cook out of both necessity and for pleasure, and consequently, are investing in their kitchens to maximise the experience. The other furniture segment is gaining importance in the market due to the rise in office furniture as more Britons choose to work from home.
