ABSTRACT
The article reports on the increase of furniture and furniture products imports in the U.S. According to the report, the Chinese-made product has led the way with an 18 percent increase, bringing its shipments to nearly 11 billion dollars which are enough to account almost half of every dollar spent on imported furniture. The growth rate of furniture imports had slowed from the 30 percent plus rate of previous years, but its dominance has continued to build.
