About Us

Making History

With roots dating to 1920, the Home Furnishings Association is the nation’s only trade association devoted exclusively to the needs and interests of home furnishings retailers. Our business has one priority: the success of more than 1,200 retail members and their 7,000 storefronts. The world is changing, and the HFA is here to help you stay ahead. HFA creates opportunities for retailers to connect with each other at markets, conferences and special events, learn how to satisfy and delight customers, and find better ways to run profitable businesses that contribute to their communities and provide good jobs.

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.
