| Powerhouse Specialists|
Powerhouse Specialists, lists 70 casual furniture specialists that are significant players within their respective markets. This list is by no means comprehensive. Many more than the specialists listed here are strong retailers within their communities. Companies are not ranked, but are listed alphabetically.
Casual furniture specialists, including hearth/patio specialists and pool/patio specialists, qualified for the listing. Sales from big box retailers such as Wal-Mart, Kmart, Lowe's, Home Depot and Target are not included.
All sales figures and ranges are for total 2009 store sales, which may include revenues from the sale of products other than outdoor furniture and accessories. Where possible, the percentage of sales from outdoor furniture and accessories is reported.
Sales figures and store counts are for the calendar year 2009. All sales figures, except for publicly held companies that break out casual furniture and accessory sales as a separate line of business, are Casual Living market research estimates.
Sales estimates were derived through direct mail surveys, faxes and telephone discussions with the companies themselves and with industry analysts and suppliers.
