(NECN) – You may have visited websites like cookware.com or luggage.com in your search for the best deal online. Or maybe even bedroomfurniture.com or strollers.com, but now your searching is made a lot easier.

Formerly known as CSN stores, it has now consolidated all the websites into one: wayfair.com.

And the Boston-based company hopes to continue its huge growth.

Co-founder Steve Conine talks about his nine-year-old company that earned $400 million last year, surpassed Crate & barrel as the number two online retailer for home goods and recently reached $165 million venture capital investment.

Conine talks about name recognition, why they changed the name, convincing suppliers to have low pricing, employing Massachusetts people, hiring, future of brands AllModern and Joss&Main, co-founder Nor-Edge Wre and more.
