U.S. Office Furniture- Statistics & Facts

Although it is not often the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of an office, no office is complete without desks, chairs, and a water cooler. Though office furniture seems to have remained more or less unchanged in the last twenty years, there has been a great deal of innovation and growth in the office furniture market. Standing desks, for instance, are a relatively new fixture in offices and are perfect for those who prefer not to sit for extended periods of time for health or comfort reasons. In addition, ergonomic chairs and desks are perfect for combating back and wrist pain which plague so many office workers.

The United States is home to the largest office furniture market in the world, generating over 15.4 billion dollars in revenue in 2018. The U.S. office furniture market is expected to reach a value of 14.3 billion dollars by 2025. Some of the leading office furniture companies in the world are from the United States in Steelcase, Herman Miller, and Haworth. Steelcase generates the majority of its revenue from systems and storage products such as file cabinets and desks, while Herman Miller’s sales are driven by seating products.

The value of furniture imports to the United States amounted to over 54 billion U.S. dollars in 2017, making the United States the leading importer of furniture in the world. In terms of office furniture, the majority of the import value comes from wooden furniture rather than metal furniture. The United States exported about 168.6 million U.S. dollars of wooden furniture and 215 million U.S. dollars of metal furniture in 2018.
