Hi, everyone! We hope you all had a wonderful and productive January! If you’re new here, I want to take a little more time to introduce ourselves and our brand!
There are a few things you’re going to encounter when purchasing from The Furniture Lady. Besides quality furniture and cheap prices, one of the key elements to our store is that we are a business ran by women. Our name isn’t “The Furniture Lady” for no reason! We are a company owned and operated by women, and believe it or not, that is rare in the furniture industry. Would it surprise you if I told you that most furniture businesses were owned and operated by men? The furniture industry is well known for its male domination. A Harvard Business Review published article titled “The Female Economy” estimates that 94% of home furnishings being purchased were by women. Yet, it is a reasonable speculation that at least 90% of leaders in manufacturing are male. Really surprising, right? It will also come as a surprise to you that in 2013 there were only 80,000 women employed in furniture retail stores and 133,000 men according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
At The Furniture Lady, you’re getting a product for women actually ran by women. A very, very passionate family of women. We are consumers just like you, so we carry products we would want in our own homes. Pieces and decor that are functional yet beautiful at even better prices. Who doesn’t want that, right?
We hope that in the process of building our business and female brand, we are empowering other women to go after their dream careers, even if those careers are currently dominated by men. We are a business of women empowering other women and mothers empowering our daughters.
So we would like to take a second to share with you each of our favorite pieces we carry and our prefered style. We have quite the collection, and I think between all of us we can find a style and product for everyone!
