The National Upholstery Association, the only national nonprofit trade association supporting the upholstery trade in North America, recently concluded their second annual pricing survey. “Knowledge of the pricing within one’s marketplace is so important to balancing return on investment with gaining market share! This year’s survey has the added benefit of comparing the results to last year at a time of rising inflation.” ‑Lewis Mabon, Board Member
The pricing survey collected data from 215 upholsterers and workrooms in the inaugural 2021 year. The data collected helps workrooms across America reevaluate their current rates, and become more competitive with any new services they might want to offer. The interactive survey collects data points on pricing metrics such as shop rates, pricing by service, and pricing by furniture type. Additionally, results can be broken down by region, service area size, and/or number of employees. This year, the survey will be presented in the same fun interactive format with visuals and easy controls to toggle results. Survey results will be posted the first week of January and are open to members of the National Upholstery Association.
Membership to the National Upholstery Association provides ample benefits to its members, and in turn, supports the association’s goal of increasing the health of the upholstery trade. In addition to survey results, members enjoy monthly webinars, special events throughout the year, industry newsletters, special promotions from Industry and Education sponsors, and more.
