Bernhard's story is nothing short of inspiring. In 1889, John Bernhardt saw an opportunity to start a small sawmill business and John began buying lumber. He started with manufacturing products out of White Oak. His drive and vision led him to get in contact with distributors and merchants in large cities around the US to provide and supply well built furniture.
Slowly but surely, John Bernhardt started to make a name for himself through his brand as a well known businessman in the furniture industry. The experiences garnered from his youth shaped John Bernhardt’s nature and character.
Being in the furniture industry for such a long time, the brand had its fair share of ups and downs. From their humble beginnings and being able to expand and become well known, Bernhardt furniture encountered some roadblocks back in the day. Labor and material shortages during the World Wars, the factory getting caught in a fire which almost took everything from them and also the Great Depression during 1929-1941.
All of these events challenged the brand but John and his family did not lose hope and strived to get back up and improve. Working hand in hand with their loyal and long time employees, Bernhardt furniture got back on its feet and blossomed. As generations passed by, Bernhardt continued to produce quality products. As a result of their life long work, Bernhardt has expanded outside of the USA and is being sold in 51 other countries.
Throughout the years, pieces produced by Bernhardt have garnered various accolades. Which include American Furniture Awards, House and Garden Designers Best and Pinnacle Awards.
All of these are not possible without the passion, vision and drive of John Mathias Bernhardt.
