DUBLIN (PRNewswire) – According to a new report by Allied Market Research, titled, “Global Luxury Furniture Market – Size, Industry Analysis, Trends, Opportunities, Growth and Forecast, 2014-2020,” the global luxury furniture market is expected to reach $27 billion by 2020.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth, owing to the rise in disposable incomes.

Wooden luxury furniture has gained substantial demand worldwide, followed by metal. The high acceptance of wooden furniture is primarily due to durability and the modern yet antique look, which makes it a good fit for both household and commercial usage.

Presently, Europe is the largest market for luxury furniture, followed by North America.

  • Duresta Upholstery Ltd.
  • Giovanni Visentin
