The Furniture Industry Research Association

The centre of knowledge for the furniture industry

Consumer Guides

The role of the Furniture Industry Research Association is to support organisations across the furniture supply chain. The Research Association has over 65 years’ experience in developing and setting the Standards for furniture in the UK and Europe, to try to ensure the products you buy are suitable for use.

We are aware some consumers have queries about purchasing furniture, or flammability concerns, so we have produced some guides which offer general advice.
