The year 2014 marked the 125th anniversary of Bernhardt Furniture. For Bernhardt, this milestone was not only a time to celebrate, but also a time to reaffirm the values that have enabled the company to endure. Foremost among those values: creating quality furniture...and a deep commitment to people and relationships.
Unique by today’s standards, Bernhardt remains a family-owned business that is dedicated to the welfare of the community that’s been its home since 1889.
The company’s history, spanning more than 125 years, is a story of pioneer spirit, of opportunities recognized and realized in spite of obstacles.
