Smith Brothers is owned and operated in the town of Berne, Indiana—the same place we've been since we opened for business in 1926.
Unfortunately, there has been a trend in recent years for furniture manufacturers to outsource their production to other countries such as
China, where labor is much less expensive. They believe that's the best way to do business. We don't see it that way.
Smith Brothers's founders knew it a hundred years ago, and we still know it today: the people of Berne
and the surrounding area are hardworking and dedicated, and they're the reason we’ve been successful.
From engineering and product development through actually building and upholstering, cleaning, and finally delivering furniture,
we are focused on quality. We believe our work is too important, and requires too much talent, skill, and dedication
at every step, to trust it to be done to our standards by a bottom-dollar workforce in another country.
Manufacturing overseas means that the product blueprints have to be simple—a handful of options may be allowed, but anything more
complex is simply not feasible. Overseas production is about cutting costs, and that's it.
When you choose Smith Brothers, every last detail is up to you to decide, from our hundreds
of fabrics and over 80 leather options, to the various pillows, nailhead, welt cords, fringe, and wood finishes. You can even build a fabric collage of
your own design, or provide your own fabric! If you can dream it, chances are we can build it.
We want you to be as happy with your furniture as we are, and that means:
