Bernhardt Furniture Company was established in 1889, in Lenoir NC, by John Mathias Bernhardt. We are among the country’s largest family-owned furniture companies and a leading diversified global furniture manufacturer. The company operates eight manufacturing facilities and its corporate headquarters in North Carolina, and employs some 1,540 people worldwide.
Our furniture has received numerous awards for product design excellence, in diverse market segments. Our company has earned AHFA’s environmental excellence award for corporate performance.
Now led by the fourth generation, Bernhardt remains deeply committed to the values upon which we were founded: high business standards, the artistry of furniture making, the generations of artisans who form the bedrock of our company, and the welfare of our local community.
