France is one of the largest furniture markets in Europe. Due to Covid-19, Lockdowns and social distancing measures affect retailers with physical stores more than online retailers and may ultimately accelerate the ongoing shift from brick-and-mortar to online retailing. For example, in France, the market share of e-commerce rapidly increased to almost 10% of total consumer goods sales during the confinement period, compared to less than 6% in 2019.

The home furnishings market in France has been growing year on year till 2017. The decline in the housing, real estate, and construction markets, combined with actions by the social movement, led to a decline in home furnishings in 2018. These factors affected the France furniture industry. However, a return to growth was seen in 2019, as consumers took advantage of bargain prices. Despite all these issues, the future of the furniture market in France is expected to remain positive. Companies like IKEA, Conforama, Nobilia, and Roche Bobois are some of the prominent names in the home furnishings industry, which control chains of stores that offer the complete range of home furnishings under one roof. Rising smartphone numbers, 4G penetration, millennials preferring online viewing compared to store visits, and virtual reality showcase of furniture products are some factors driving the France online furniture market.
