The author argues against the notion that the furniture industry is a one-size-fits-all industry. He claims that the industry is one of the least homogenous industries, which is reflected by the High Point Market event that was held in North Carolina in 2007 in which diverse furniture products were featured. The author expresses his reluctance to make a generalization on the state of the industry.
