who we are

The HFA is a non-profit trade association that provides the opportunities and tools to help home furnishings retailers sell more, make more and keep more.

The Home Furnishings Association (HFA) was founded in 2013 with the merger of the three largest home furnishings retailer associations in the U.S. The HFA is North America’s largest organization devoted specifically to the needs and interests of home furnishings retailers, with more than 1,400 members representing more than 7,000 storefronts across all 50 states and several countries. Association offices in the East, West, and Central United States provide members with programs, resources, services, and a unified voice in government relations by partnering with home furnishings industry suppliers, vendors, affiliates, and other organizations.
