The article presents narratives from some business people. David Vokins, Vokins Furniture Centre, Hove, East Sussex, England says, "I am looking for something that is a move away from the oaks and brown leathers. I am particularly looking for more compact furniture. This is because the furniture that we have at the moment looks rather large and we need products that go with the smaller, more compact homes that are being built in the area." Julian Field, Furniture123 managing director, Leeds, England says, "This year we have a backlog of suppliers that we wish to list on our website, so our buying objectives are mainly to stay in touch with current suppliers and learn of product launches they may have."
