ABSTRACT
Indications abound that the home furnishings business will become saturated with the entry of new designers and companies. The trend will cause smaller retailers and designers to be pushed out of the market, some of whom have innovative products but no vendor numbers and little open-to-buy for floor space and other required advantages of the market. The competitive trend is also feared to cause department stores to adopt strategies such as preventing retail customers to photograph the product in case the pictures migrate to a vendor and to a competitive merchandise. Ultimately, brands with basic products will become winners in the market.
