Bachelor Haus vies for Slice of the $9bn Online Furniture Industry, featured in LA Business Journal

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2014-01-16

Bachelor Haus was featured in an LA Business Journal article titled Moving In: Niche-focused Online Furniture Dealers work to click with Internet-Cautious Manufaturers. Bachelor Haus is an online furniture store featuring carefully selected room sets for young, modern men.

The company, and its Founder & CEO Adam Acheson, are Graduates of the Los Angeles Founder Institute

In the article, LA Business Journal writer Justin Yang examines the massive brick and mortar furniture industry, and how it is assimilating with online stores like Bachelor Haus that specialize on delivering curated products to very specific niches. 

 

"While the e-commerce companies try to take a small slice of the online furniture market, which Australian research company IBISWorld said had grown by 9.6 percent since 2008 to become a $9 billion industry last year, their greatest competition still comes from those retailers that do offer everything.

“We’re not being all things to everybody,” Acheson said. “When you walk into a big-box store, they are all things to everybody.”
