In the competition of all furniture, finished furniture obviously will not a winner. They will need to face the shrinking market as facing deep waters.
But, if you take it for granted that finished furniture is over its time, it will show you not the case. In March furniture fair, we can see many finished furniture suppliers had shown lots of energy to overcome this cold air in industry, like driving a boat backwards in the river. Tailor-made furniture supplier can make some changes in the difficulties, where finished furniture enterprises may be able to find a new way to develop. Year 2019 will not be a year of blooming finished furniture, but will be full of chance and challenges.
What are the chances for finished furniture companies? Firstly, most consumers still pay more attention to the designs of finished furniture. High end tailor-made furniture are too expensive also long lead time. However, you can buy any finished furniture at sight when you see it, which seems a better choice. Nowadays, most finished furniture suppliers stressed the importance of design, especially something related to culture. For example, new Chinese furniture designs are deeply rooted in the traditional Chinese culture, which will attract consumers’eyes in the culture recovery. Northern European or Italian Furniture enterprises will strengthen the designers’original designs to attract young people, which is hard for tailor-made furniture supplier.
More and more finished furniture companies starts to use the upholstered structure into design and bring out more combinations, like sofa matching easy coffee table, side table; then study desk with bookshelf and light also decoration etc.. Some consumers may be attracted by one piece furniture design then buy the whole range back. Finished furniture also decorates some “ showroom” to bring more attraction to more young family.
Traditional furniture stores are not the only way that consumers buy their furniture. More and more finished furniture enterprises had chosen big shopping mall to set up flag shop, street shop or fashion living house. Besides, social media has developed rapidly then leading to multiple channels, like hot items from internet can bring more people to the stores, which is really effective.
Some companies had planned in advance to set up semi-finished products plus tailor-made decoration, which can bring win-win situation to both finished and tailor-made furniture suppliers. For cabinet you can tell your required size, then for sofa/ table/ chairs/ beds that not easily to tailor made, you can choose from finished furniture supplier. Maybe it will help to sort out the stock problem for finished furniture supplier.
The difficulties of tailor-made will not active finished furniture’s recovery, but it will still bring some hope. In the furniture fair just past, it brings hope to lots of furniture enterprises. Maybe, it is not that hard as we expected in 2019 for furniture industry.
