“Wayfair is changing the way people shop for their homes,” noted Niraj Shah, CEO, co-founder and co-chairman, Wayfair. “Part of that process is helping consumers discover all of the new possibilities enabled by our online retail experience in terms of selection, price, service and inspiration. Catalog is typically a medium used to explore a limited selection of higher end furnishings, but for Wayfair, we're featuring great sofas starting at $299 and pillows starting at $14.”

The Wayfair catalog is the latest customer touch point powered by quantitative and algorithm based insights. Wayfair’s team of buyers and editors created the new home catalog based on proprietary analytics technology developed by Wayfair’s 450 engineers and data scientists. This innovative approach is also the backbone of Wayfair’s national television advertising and content integrations and partnerships with media brands such as HGTV, Coastal Living, Real Simple, Sunset and This Old House.

“Technology enables us to serve our customers better than anyone else in the industry,” added Shah. “We are using our proprietary data and insights to make the shopping experience more tangible while not limiting our customers' access to selection and great prices. Our focus on technology is expansive to new formats that deliver a positive and immersive retail experience to our customers in the home. We will continue to raise the bar on what is possible in home retail.”
