An article for MiBiz recently referred to positive changes within office furniture industry, according to information cited from the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association and IHS Global Insight.
Last month, these sources predicted a growth in furniture shipments that will exceed $10 billion by the end of the year, and the source says that shipments within the first three years of 2015 alone have increased by 9 percent.
In general, furniture sales seem to be higher than they were in 2014, at least according to this source. It referred to other positive signs of growth within the industry, such as a high office furniture activity index reported by Michael A. Dunlap & Associates.
The CEO of furniture company Herman Miller Inc., Brian Walker, spoke to the source about the general patterns that are encouraging strong performance for furniture producers. He also referenced some of the ways that new economic trends have impacted furniture business decisions for the future.
“The industry is in a pretty healthy spot right now from a demand perspective,” he said. “I think that’s because we finally have a period where — while the economy hasn’t been super robust in the recovery — there’s been enough length that companies are doing well and investing in their facilities.”
Of course, businesses need to not just purchase more office furniture, but prioritize items that will make a positive impact once they are purchased and put into use. Quality Office Liquidations features Herman Miller quality office furniture products among its inventory, including the Aeron Task Chair and telemarketing and benching stations that can be adapted and modified to fit into the workspace.
