Value of furniture sales sees annual rise but monthly drop

Sales of furniture and lighting dropped in February but the value was still higher than a year earlier.

Sales in England, Scotland and Wales dropped by 4.37% (£57.2m) from January to £1,251,812,000, according to the Office for National Statistics.

This was 2.5% higher than February 2022, 41.1% higher than February 2021, 1.4% higher than February 2020 and 0.58% higher than February 2019.

February was the 41st highest of the 446 months since January 1986, when ONS began recording comparable data.

The figures are not seasonally adjusted, do not take inflation into account and are subject to revision.
