The European market for outdoor furniture

The European market offers interesting opportunities for the outdoor furniture sector both in the residential and contract segment. Gardens, terraces and balconies become increasingly an extension of the living room, dining room and kitchen. Hence the barrier between indoor and outdoor is disappearing and garden furniture tends to imitate more and more indoor furniture (living room). This report offers a comprehensive picture of the outdoor furniture industry for ten Western European countries, analyzing the sector performance, product trends, type of destination (residential vs contract), distribution channels, the competitive system and its main players. The report offers data on production, exports, imports, consumption of outdoor furniture by country. Short profiles with addresses, turnover range and product type of over 100 outdoor furniture manufacturers and importers are provided for each country. The countries covered are: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom. Products covered include: seats, tables, benches, sun loungers, garden sofas, swing seats. Product destination: residential and contract segment including "street contract" (restaurants, bars, cafés) and hotels, wellness hotels, public spaces.
