    Is furniture ripe for the sharing economy?

    Here’s something to keep an eye on. The other day, Furniture/Today received an email from Gorilly, a new online shopping service that could become the Uber or Airbnb of furniture. The San Francisco-based company lets consumers “try before they buy” by essentially turning previous buyers of products into showroom operators of sorts. Thinking about buying an Oru Kayak but can’t find a local store? Check out the listings on to see if a previous buyer in your neighborhood is available to show you the very kayak you’re interested in. If you end up buying ...

    Port bottleneck has cost industry dearly

    The announcement last week that U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez was headed to San Francisco to get involved in talks between the International Longshore and Warehouse Union and Pacific Maritime Assn. to end the slowdown at key West Coast ports is a welcome, if overdue, sign that the situation is finally getting the attention in Washington that it deserves.
