At Harveys, we now have a large proportion of our shoppers buying coffee tables and footstools with clever storage features, as well as the usual innovative wardrobe and cupboard designs. As far as Harveys are concerned, the trend in house sharing has definitely led to increases in sales of new and innovative furniture lines.”
