ITC Holds Public Conference on Wooden Bedroom Furniture Antidumping Case

The International Trade Commission today held its public conference on the antidumping petition filed by the American Furniture Manufacturers Committee for Legal Trade (AFMC) against wooden bedroom furniture from China. Among those testifying on behalf of the petitioners were John Bassett, Chairman of the AFMC and President of the Vaughan-Bassett Furniture Company as well as representatives from La-Z-Boy Inc. and other U.S. furniture makers.

This conference was unusual since a large number of U.S. companies testified in opposition to the antidumping petition, including Rooms To Go Furniture Corp. and J.C. Penney. Lynn Chipperfield, a senior vice president for Furniture Brands International, also spoke in opposition to import duties on Chinese imports. Furniture Brands International is the largest furniture manufacturer in the United States and owns Thomasville Furniture Industries, Broyhill Furniture and Drexel Heritage Furniture Industries.
