From Modest Origins to Global Acclaim 

Orphaned at 13, John Bernhardt jumped a box car to Oregon, hoping to become a government surveyor. He returned home three years later to pursue a career as a timber cutter. After buying a sawmill, he saw the opportunity to use timber to make solid oak bedroom furniture. Pretty soon, folks in Chicago and New York City started buying this furniture for their homes. 

And so, in 1889, the Bernhardt Furniture Company was born in North Carolina. Berhardt’s skill was leveraging the area’s plentiful supply of beautiful timbers and local woodworking skills. He was never one to do things by halves, so he opened his factory with 25 employees. Over the ensuing decades, Bernhardt expanded into all aspects of furniture for the home and office, building a stellar reputation for quality and integrity and becoming one of the premier furniture companies of the 20th century.
