"Vibrant" for some. For others, not so much.

Does he mean the vibrant consumer market for over-priced wicker? Dovetails nicely with Ikea's over-priced balsa wood furniture strategy.

I think that's what we're looking at here. After all, Mr. Jacobsen's European retail chain is described as a "Danish Ikea."
