Bernhardt Furniture Company was established in 1889, in Lenoir NC, by John Mathias Bernhardt. They are among the country’s largest family-owned furniture companies and a leading diversified global furniture manufacturer. Truly fine furniture has always demanded painstaking attention to detail - and that's still true today. Bernhardt blends modern technology and traditional craftsmanship to carry on time-honored standards of fit, finish, hardware, and construction. Now led by the fourth generation, Bernhardt remains deeply committed to the values upon which they were founded: high business standards, the artistry of furniture making, the generations of artisans who form the bedrock of their company, and the welfare of their local community.
