Many people would prefer to purchase a new bedroom set every few years for $1000 and have the latest trend in their home than to purchase a solid set for $8000 that has the same look but will last for years and years. The same goes for living room furniture. Making furniture with a modern look but for a fraction of the price can be done because of the lower cost of labor, materials, and machinery in overseas countries.
China is a major market for overseas furniture manufacturing. Many of the dining room set, bedroom sets, and other case goods are coming from this location. There are also factories in China that cut and sew upholstery pieces and then ship them to the US for final assembly to allow a piece to be said that it is made in the USA. This greatly reduces costs while still allowing for American-made products.
