The success of high-end home furnishers lately appears to stem from a shift towards more expensive product lines rather than a broader range of products. This shift has partially been caused by reduced store traffic and a middleclass preference for discounted goods. Since strong store traffic statistics often correlate well with overall sales volume, furnishing companies are trying to squeeze more profit out of each sale. A wider range of prices often requires stronger sales volumes to sustain profits. Visit to see how companies in this industry have grown over the past years and how they are expected to perform in the future.

It's very similar to the success seen by discount retailers who lower prices and rely heavily on volume sales. High-end furnishers also appear to be capitalizing on the mid-range retailers who have been hit hard by a middle class consumer's preference for discounted goods.

It is not certain how long the success of high-end furnishers will last but sales are expected to remain strong through the holiday season.
