UK sales of home office furniture soar

Thursday 12 April 2012

Sales of home office desks and chairs have soared in recent months, suggesting that a growing number of people are planning to work from home during the Olympic Games, according to a new report.
Retail giant John Lewis said sales so far this year were up by 14% compared with 12 months ago, adding that customers were clearly getting their houses ready for home-working during the summer.
Demand for office furniture has been highest in the South East, especially London and commuter areas close to the capital, where workers will be affected by the increased number of visitors using public transport this summer.
Sally Hudson, of John Lewis, said: "We've seen more and more of our customers getting their homes ready for home-working - either for the Olympics, or longer term.
"Despite the advent of laptop computers and Wi-Fi, most of us still require a designated work station in order to work from home productively."
