To be a leading manufacturer and supplier of contract seating, building strategic partnerships with designers, specifiers and end users whilst working to provide quality interior solutions.
Harris Contract Furniture is a British, manufacturing based, business making seating and tables for the contract market from its dedicated 4500m2 factory in Bristol.
At Harris Contract Furniture we believe the design and manufacture of truly original, high-quality furniture is the result of passion, care, design integrity, experience, craftsmanship and an unfaltering dedication to quality. This commitment could not be realised without fully integrating the design and manufacturing processes. At our factory in Bristol we start the process with trees and finish with beautifully crafted chairs.
“Good design is not just beautiful, it is functional, it is a combination of great care, attention to detail and its style and quality will always endure time.”
Harris Contract Furniture is a passionate exponent of lean manufacture and, through its actions, clearly demonstrates how this approach delivers mutual benefits for company and customer. Significant reductions in waste have produced corresponding environmental gains and cost savings for the customer while, at the same time, operational efficiency has been increased resulting in improved lead times and even higher quality of product and service to the customer. We employ highly skilled, committed and motivated people, with a passion for furniture, and an ability to interpret and satisfy our customers’ needs.
We source much of our timber from European sustainable estates that are controlled with felling licenses, and are given PEFC/FSC certification or are EUTR compliant. The logs are air dried, kilned and conditioned for between four months and two years which produces high quality timber suitable for furniture making.
We have always been concerned by sustainability and the environmental impact of our activities, as well as our social responsibility to the wider community and we design furniture so as to reduce its overall environmental impact throughout its life cycle. We continually assess the environmental impact of our operations and through minimising the use of materials and resources; we will reduce our wastage to the lowest practical level.
Our customers can be confident that they are partnering a company fully committed and assessed to the environmental cause.
