Ikea started the trend of profiling customers in furniture, but it accelerated about 10 years ago when other retailers began designing their own furniture rather than buying it from a manufacturer. Only a huge corporation such as Ikea can afford extensive home visits, but smaller companies have their own methods, such as attending trade shows and reading trade publications.

“Each time I go, I know I’m going to drop a few hundred dollars,” she said. “I equipped my son’s entire room from Ikea. I built a drafting table out of their sawhorses and a wood plank.”

Ikea sends about 1,000 employees each year to sleuth in homes worldwide from New York to Shanghai to find out what people need. They watch residents get ready for work, eat and entertain friends. They observe them cooking and doing laundry and ask why they store their pots and pans where they do and how they use the clothes hamper when it’s not holding clothes. The researchers even spy on how people use their bathrooms.

In New York, Ikea found, 51 percent of the population wakes up before 7 a.m. and 12 percent do some work from home before leaving for the day. More than 60 percent of New Yorkers eat breakfast at home, and 56 percent take their showers in the morning, for an average of 14 minutes.

“Since more people are moving into cities, space is becoming less available. We are moving away from rooms that have a dedicated purpose,” the 2015 Ikea Home Report reads.”Having one specific room for just eating, watching television or working is a thing of the past. Nowadays, we don’t just eat in the dining room; we eat all over the home.”

The smaller spaces means furniture that can be moved easily or used in more than one way. At the same time, the home has to serve other functions as well, Ikea research found.

Though many of Ikea’s ideas are drawn from visiting small apartments, the furniture is desirable in any sized home, Bomberger said. Saving space leaves room for other uses no matter where one lives, he said. “Even in a big house in Geist, people want efficiency.” he said.

“For example, retailers might tell the manufacturer that people are asking for high-back chairs or more recliners, and the manufacturer will respond,” he said. If the pieces do well at the stores, the owners will ask for more the next year, or one with certain alternations, depending on what customers are saying.

In addition to home visits, the company produces intense, specialized behavior studies. A report on how and where mothers play with their children led to the the design of a coffee table with rounded corners. Research about how lighting affects a home dweller’s mood produced an app-based dimmer that can adjust light color, tones and brightness.

Many of the home visits are in densely populated cities, such as New York, London, Moscow, Shanghai, and Paris, where living spaces are tight and rooms have several functions. A 2015 report on how people prepare and eat food revealed that 35 percent of people never eat in the kitchen. The information is used to consider how pieces of furniture in other rooms might accommodate dining.

In one of its reports, researchers probed how people make their apartments homey. About 40 percent said their homes have a distinct smell, and 65 percent of millennials said they play music to generate atmosphere. More than 18 percent said their homes were too bright. Home is also where friendships are forged; 48 percent of respondents said their most important relationships are cultivated at home so they need space both to entertain and to find solitude.  At the same time, many said Wi-Fi and working spaces are increasingly crucial in maintaining social relationships so furniture is being developed that serves those purposes.

“Apparel has been doing that for 40 to 50 years, walking the streets in Paris to see what end users are wearing,” said Bomberger, who worked for The Gap Inc. and Paul Harris and is a consultant for furniture companies.

Tucker said usually retailers gather feedback from customers at their stores and tell manufacturers what the consumers want. The manufacturer then produces three or four prototypes that are displayed at big furniture shows in High Point, N.C., or Las Vegas, and the store owners can order them

“Typically, clients walk in to a furniture showroom and are serviced by either salespeople or in-house designers or both,” Woolley said. “The idea of a presale home visit runs contrary to the norm.”
