About The British Furniture Confederation



The British Furniture Confederation (BFC) maintains regular dialogue with Government and other influential stakeholders to ensure that all policies and initiatives support a thriving furniture, furnishings and bed sector. Many of its activities are channelled through the All Party Parliamentary Furniture Industry Group (APPFIG), chaired by Stephen McPartland MP.



The sector is larger than many envisage, operating within a diverse marketplace including houses, offices, hotels, schools, cruise liners, hospitals, restaurants, residential accommodation, stadia, airports and other public spaces.



8,000 manufacturers produce £10 billion of product and employ 106,000 people. In addition to this, 147,000 individuals are estimated to work in associated wholesale and retail activities.
