Abstract: This chapter focuses on the role of credit in relation both to the furniture retailer and the consumer, with particular emphasis on the period 1850-1980. It was during this time that the retail furniture business expanded to meet the growing demands and purchasing power of the British population. The majority of the study relates to domestic furniture, but in many cases, the commentary considers attitudes applicable also to other durable commodities.
