Top 100 US Furniture Stores by Sales

Furniture Today

What are the biggest furniture stores you can think of off the top of your head? IKEA, Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel? Those were the ones that immediately came to my mind, so I was really surprised when I opened Furniture Today's 2011 Retail Planning Guide and found a list that included some humongous stores I'd never heard of.

Nebraska Furniture Mart? Badcock Home Furniture? Having lived in big northern cities for my whole life, these places have stayed outside my radar until now.

Another interesting thing this list proves is that while modern style might reign on Apartment Therapy, traditionalism is still the choice of most Americans. What's more, layaway plans and whole-room sets — as cheesy as they seem — must really work. Stores like Ashley, La-Z-Boy, Rooms to Go, and Bob's Discount Furniture dominated the top 25, listed and linked here:
