On Jan. 1, 2019, the Trump administration plans to enact a 25 percent tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese imported goods, including furniture, lighting, home decor and their respective parts, At press time, there is no indication that this will not happen, so retailers and designers heading to winter markets in Atlanta, Dallas and Las Vegas will have to contend with this as they meet with vendors.
In preparation for winter markets, Furniture, Lighting & Decor reached out to manufacturers and asked for their 2018 and 2019 plans. Below are the responses we received. While we, of course, did not reach out to every single manufacturer, some did not respond and others declined to comment. We recommend you reach out to any vendor not listed if they haven’t already contacted you.
