21 Best Furniture Stores in 2023

In this article, we will be taking a look at the 21 best furniture stores in 2023. To skip our detailed analysis of the furniture sector, you can go directly to see the 5 Best Furniture Stores in 2023.

The COVID-19 pandemic was highly devastating for many sectors across the globe. However, with the exit of the pandemic, many impacted sectors, such as the furniture sector, have begun to recover. We previously reported that the furniture sector was the largest in the US in terms of revenue since it produced about $226.78 billion in revenues in 2021. This large scope of the sector and the easing market conditions in the absence of the pandemic have worked together to enable the continued growth of the furniture sector. For instance, in 2022, we witnessed this clear recovery in the upholstered furniture industry in particular.

The Recovering Global Upholstered Furniture Industry

According to a report published by the Centre for Industrial Studies in 2022, global consumption of upholstered furniture had increased to $81 billion in that year. This marked a clear recovery from the pandemic-impacted levels in 2019 since this figure marks a $10 billion increase since 2019 levels. The report also mentioned the largest markets for upholstered furniture. These are the furniture markets of the US, China, Germany, and the United Kingdom. These four markets, alongside six others, made up 80% of global upholstery consumption as of 2022. The report further mentioned that of the top 100 upholstered manufacturers analyzed, the largest companies in terms of revenue were based in the US and China, making these two companies the global leaders in the furniture sector.

Considering the fact that renowned furniture companies such as Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT), Walmart Inc. (NYSE:WMT), and Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST) are all based in the US, the status of the US as a global leader in the furniture industry is unsurprising. In the aftermath of the pandemic, a major trend observed in the global furniture industry is the increasing demand for online shopping. This new demand has rapidly become one of the main drivers of the furniture market. According to a report published by the Business Research Company in January 2023, this market's size is expected to grow to $935.9 billion by 2027, growing at a rate of 6.1% annually from 2023 to 2027.

Post-Pandemic Online Shopping

According to a report published by Fortune Business Insights on the regional forecast for the furniture market between 2023 and 2028, the pandemic significantly altered consumer preferences when it comes to their method of shopping. For example, in the 12 months leading up to August 2020, IKEA reported a 43% jump in its online sales from furnishing items globally. Additionally, the report noted that the presence of prominent e-commerce companies in North America, in particular, has also aided the growing demand for the online shopping of furniture. Many e-commerce companies, such as Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA), provide fixture items to complement furniture products. Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA) has also invested about $2.88 billion in furniture retailer EasyHome since 2018 to expand its own fixture products business in Canada, where EasyHome is based.

Such actions by e-commerce companies show how these corporations are also banking on profiting from the growing demand for online shopping when it comes to furniture. However, the rise of online shopping in this sector is merely one trend among many that are helping the sector expand and grow in the aftermath of the pandemic. We have compiled a list of the top furniture stores to shop at in 2023 in recognition of this undeniable growth.
