Based on current population projections, Households in the Age Segment 55 to 64 will continue to increase at a staggering rate.  With an estimated rise of 77% from 2000 to 2020, Ages 55 to 64 will make up the vast majority of the furniture buying population.  While Ages 25 to 34 are projected to rise 15% over the 20 year span,  Ages 35 to 44 (considered the prime furniture purchasers) are estimated to fall (-7.5%) with Age Group 45 to 54 finishing flat at a 0% growth in 2020.  In 2020,  Age Segment 55 to 64 is projected to make up 19% of the furniture buying population, while the three younger generations will each be responsible for roughly 16%.
