The UK recession has hit spending on household items particularly hard, and the discretionary element of home furniture purchasing is no exception. Some of those people considering an upgrade to their home will defer their spending until they feel more confident about their finances.
However, coupled with this is an increasing trend for the number of home workers. Changing work practices, redundancies and new technologies are making it both necessary and easier for more people to work from home. The result of this is that whilst furniture sales are declining in comparison to past years there is still a considerable demand for home office furniture.
According to Mintel* the most commonly owned and purchased items of home office furniture are workstations and office chairs.
BT Office, the UK supplier of value for money office furniture, has witnessed an increase in sales for home office furnishings, as well as economy furniture over the last few months.
