Founded in 1889, Bernhardt Furniture Company is one of the largest family-owned and operated manufacturers of fine casegoods and upholstered furniture in the United States. Located in the foothills of western North Carolina, Bernhardt employs over 1,400 people and operates seven plants.
J.M. Bernhardt, a North Carolina entrepreneur, founded Bernhardt Furniture in 1889. As Bernhardt’s fledgling enterprise built facilities and honed the skills of its craftsmen, the company earned a reputation for making high-quality furniture that was both durable and beautiful. Known for intricate oak-grain finishes, Bernhardt sold thousands of sturdy chests and tables. Cabinets and cases were stacked like bricks and loaded into freight cars for transport to cities across America.
Since then, four generations of Bernhardt family members, who have been responsible for the success of this American enterprise, no doubt learned from J.M. Bernhardt’s experience and example. J.M. Bernhardt's sons, George and Christian, took the reigns and guided the company through the Depression era and the post World-War II growth boom. Today, Bernhardt is led by its Chairman and CEO Alex Bernhardt, son of John Christian Bernhardt.
Bernhardt family members continue to be involved in the direction and management of the family business. Actually, the company’s extended family includes more than 1,400 employees who work in Bernhardt factories and offices, as well as the dedicated salespeople who represent Bernhardt in the USA and more than 35 countries. Also included as members of Bernhardt’s furniture family are a host of retailers, designers, and decorators who are loyal partners in this enterprise.
Bernhardt’s story is a tale of vision, perseverance, and uncompromising commitment to high standards of doing business. This story continues today with a focus: to anticipate and satisfy the needs of customers who expect the very best furniture for their home or office.
