main-producing-countries-of-sofas

In 2017, the European upholstered furniture production amounted to around Eur 14.5 billion. Since 2012, the European upholstered furniture production grew by around +14%. This is the combined effect of a positive performance both on the exports and domestic markets, driven in particular by Poland, but also thanks to the recovery in traditional manufacturing countries (eg. Italy and the UK) and in other New EU members (e.g. Romania, Lithuania, Czech Republic). In general, the New EU Members increased faster in the six year time frame.
