Good news out of Michigan, according to the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Associations, or BIFMA, expect a nearly 5 percent uptick in business furniture sales for the year 2014.
HOLLAND, MI — West Michigan office furniture executives are feeling optimistic about the future of the industry, which is expected to see a nearly 5 percent uptick in sales in 2014.
Their personal outlook is at its highest level since January 2006, before the recession sent the industry into another tailspin, according to analyst Michael Dunlap. He tracks the pulse of the industry through his quarterly MADA/OFI Trends Survey.
That improved perspective is the highlight of Dunlap’s latest survey, which shows “the industry is on solid ground and on a positive track.”
