In 2020 Covid-19 hit the world by storm, nationally closing retail stores for a long extended amounts of time. In the UK stores were closed from March 2020 till July and shut again at the end of November continuing to present day, sadly throughout the Christmas and January sales busy season. Because of this drastic shift to online shopping for consumers there has been a significant increase in online sales, particularly in certain industries relating to the Home Furnishings Industries. With most consumers spending the majority of their time at home due to National Lockdowns as well as social distancing many people have turned to creating their home spaces into something more special for them to enjoy and live in.
