    Will Amazon dominate the online furniture market?

    Great points ... the wild card is Amazon adding the home as a channel. Unlike omnichannel retailers and even Wayfair, Amazon's technology such as Echo Show is a critical differentiator. The ability to scan a room for size, render furniture options and show what it looks like "in place" represents as close to a perfect furniture buying experience as possible. Better than uploading pictures, better than providing room dimensions and style preferences ... better than even VR. With the expected install base of Echo Show, Amazon will truly have a diabolical advantage. In my humble opinion.
