About Us

Making History

With roots dating back to 1920, the Home Furnishings Association (HFA) is the nation’s only non-profit trade association devoted specifically to the needs and interests of home furnishings retailers. With more than 1,200 retail members and 7,000 storefronts, their success is our business. The association creates opportunities for retailers to connect with one another at markets, conferences and events, to learn how to delight and enchant customers, and to identify ways to run businesses that are profitable and supportive of communities where members work and live.

With your company’s HFA membership, all employees are members. You and your team have access to tools and resources to help you and your business thrive. Most importantly, you become a part of a community of peers who want to share in the industry’s success just like the founding members did 100 years ago.

The Home Furnishings Association is focused on making home furnishings matter.

“To grow our industry we need strong future leaders to carry us forward. The association is committed to help identify and develop those future leaders.”
Mark Schumacher, Executive Vice President

Next Generation Now is an HFA hosted community of young and passionate home furnishings professionals who are the future of the industry.

Giff and Nick represent
the past and present of
Next Generation Now.

The Story Behind Next Generation Now

Twenty-five years ago, a furniture dealer from Olympia, WA was discussing his concerns of trying to transition his five children into the family business. He was concerned that the furniture industry was losing the next generation of retailers to “sexier” industries such as computer technologies and financial brokerages. Thus, Next Generation Now was born.

Developed to assist the sons, daughters and key managers in becoming the future leaders of their family’s furniture business, the group holds meetings, social events and round table discussions all focused on critical skills the youthful group needs to transition into leadership roles.

Poised and ready to develop its next group of leaders, Next Generation Now provides professional development and hosts forums to give a voice to the unique needs of family run businesses.

These energetic, curious, savvy young individuals are your future customers. Your support of Next Generation Now can help to develop even longer relationships. Working together, this community will develop the next group of industry leaders through educational events, social networking and give a voice to the unique needs of future generations in the furniture industry.
