August 2013 Furniture Insights
According to our latest survey of residential furniture manufacturers and distributors, new orders in June rose 9 percent over June 2012 but fell 6 percent from May, which is somewhat normal. The drop from May is usually caused by some market orders placed in May which would not normally be placed in June. Still, the increase over June a year ago was good news. New orders were up for 64 percent of the participants down slightly from 68 percent for May.
