What Does The Supply Chain Disruption Mean For My Furniture Order?

It’s the new year, so it only makes sense to move on from some of your older furniture pieces that need to be replaced. You’ve gone to showrooms, looked online, and found the exact furniture pieces to fill your home. Maybe you’re planning on moving to South Florida and already have your order in for brand new furniture to arrive. However, when you arrive you might notice a distinct lack of furniture anywhere. That’s because furniture suppliers are suffering from crippling supply chain shortages and delays, leaving you without a mattress to sleep on. But what exactly is going on with the furniture supply chain, and what can you do while your furniture is missing?

What’s Happening To The Supply Chain?

From your brand new sofa to computer chips to breakfast cereal, we are experiencing a significant disruption across the global supply chain. This disruption has been going on since the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, affecting everything from the manufacturing to the transportation. Factories have been shut down and there’s a lack of employees to make the same level of production pre-pandemic. Production centers that were able to stay active were operating in a drastically reduced capacity.

Because of this, many of the things we utilize daily now come at a premium due to limited supply. This also means that the furniture you likely ordered is well behind its delivery schedule. This could leave you in a compromising position, as you’ll have nothing for your home while you wait for your full furniture delivery. So what can you do in the meantime?
