If you ended up on this page, it's certain that you received an email from us or saw an advertisement online. Now, it is my pleasure to take this opportunity to personally invite you to take a closer look at Furniture Affairs Intl.

Recently, there has been a particularly strong hunger for industry news from the most emerging markets of the CIS, Central Asia, and Transcaucasia. Appreciating the efforts of international business to approach new markets within the furniture industry, we aim to support them by extended and most recent market data in these areas of our operation. For cross-border furniture market players and event organizers, which are interested to promote across these Eurasian countries, we also provide digital marketing services, such as direct mailing and online advertising.

Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan are extremely promising markets, in terms of furniture consumption and industry development, worth ~100 million people of the total population. All of them have shown a remarkable real GDP growth rate between 4 and 14 percent in 2021.

We truly believe that private businesses and consumer markets deserve development under any geopolitical circumstances. That's why we also sincerely support the aim of Russia's furniture enterprises to withstand challenging economic conditions, as well as to expand to some new yet promising international markets abroad. We stand with the idea that industries and businesses focused on making people's life better, deserve support and promotion anytime.

Since 2018, we have been working as a research and marketing enterprise specialized in the furniture & furnishing industry of Russia. In 2022, after relocating our business and headquarters to Uzbekistan, we have extended our research focus to neighbouring countries of Central Asia, Transcaucasia, and CIS. Our media platform and market reports that we provide are aimed to bring a comprehensive analysis of these countries' furniture industries and macroeconomy to the attention of a global business audience, in English.

In fact, furniture industry in these Eurasian countries has never had any media platform actively promoting this sector in the international field in a consolidated manner. For many years, the global furniture market experienced information hunger about the prospects and opportunities of the national industries here, while export and import operators have been paving their ways to their foreign customers all on their own. From now on, they've got this media, too.


INDUSTRY PULSE | We monitor various indicators affecting and reflecting the situation of the national furniture industries in our focused countries, market potential and consumption, trends in production and sales, as well as macroeconomic background. We also make an in-depth analysis of imports and exports trade flows.

You are welcome to interact with our matrix of indicators being monitored and updated on a monthly, quarterly or annually basis. This section of the website is also of the highest interest to the local business audience, since there's a lack of easily accessible market data inside their countries, too.

KEY INDICATORS | Each month, we combine all the most important furniture production and trade indicators on one slide only (available for Russia's industry yet). This is to facilitate thevpresentation and perception of a large volume of constantly changing data.

MACROREGIONAL CONTEXT | We monitor the news flow on challenges that national economies are facing in our focused countries, as well as new prospects and opportunities, with special attention to what concerns manufacturing industries, transport and logistics, building sector, bank lending, developed solutions to support business, effectiveness of the regulatory measures taken along the way, as well as activity of large foreign furniture & interior brands within the countries. Briefly, essentially, live.

SHOWTIME | Cheering the return of trade fairs to the business calendar after the challenging time of the pandemic, in a separate section we publish all latest updates from various international furniture exhibitions. Areas covered include destinations at which furniture companies from our focused countries have been actively working before, as well as new and promising markets of the world.


With quite a small, yet well experienced and professional team, we aim to contribute to maintaining global business ties across the borders under the extremely difficult conditions of today.

We'd be glad to have you aboard, among the regular audience of
