Welcome to Home News Now’s inaugural ranking of the Top 125 furniture and bedding retailers. The Top 125 is ranked by estimated 2021 furniture and bedding sales in the U.S. and includes both brick-and-mortar stores and e-tailers. Accessories, rugs and other revenue sources are not included. In the case of a tie, retailers are ranked by the percentage growth of furniture/bedding sales between 2020 and 2021. All sales figures are estimates and were compiled from a variety of sources including retailer input, publicly-held company SEC filings and news releases, store websites and industry news reports. Rent-to-own retailers were excluded from the ranking.
HNN’s 125 combined for $79.2 billion in estimated furniture and bedding sales, up about 18% from an estimated $67 billion in 2020. The numbers were adjusted to eliminate double counting of sales that appear more than once on this list. (Think Ashley HomeStore network and the numerous HomeStore independents dealers in the ranking.) The list includes estimated results from more than 23,500 brick and mortar stores, and 12 online only retailers. See the Nos. 1-25 here and Nos. 26-50 here. There are two more installments to come.
