Challenges

The furniture industry is highly competitive. Traditionally, furniture produced in the East was thought to be cheap, with little or no originality and not much emphasis on design. Most famous designers originate from European countries like Spain, Italy and France. Many Asian manufacturers hence find it hard to command a premium on their products.
