The Netherlands is the sixth Western European consumer, providing 5% of WE demand. It accounts for about 7% of WE imports. The Dutch furniture sector is traditionally characterised by a noticeable openness, favoured in this by its key geographical location as the doorway to Europe. After Switzerland, the Netherlands is the Western European country with the highest imports/consumption ratio. A peculiarity of the Dutch distribution system is the presence of a specific format for some categories of goods that is the boulevard. The boulevards dealing in furnishing products are called Woonboulevards. Furniture retailers in the Netherlands have been making substantial investments in online activities in recent years.
