Founded in 1889 by John Mathias Bernhardt, the Bernhardt company has become one of America's oldest and most well respected furniture houses.

Still owned by the Bernhardt family, the business is based in Lenoir, North Carolina. The company is a truly 'global' interiors company. Most of the furniture upholstery production is done in the seven facilities in North Carolina, but with many items also produced in various facilities across Asia.

Committed to high business standards and the principles of fine craftsmanship, this American enterprise ranks among the top U.S. furniture companies in annual sales worldwide. Bernhardt collections have won multiple Pinnacle Awards for outstanding product design, and the company has received the AHFA’s Environmental Excellence award for corporate performance.
