New Products and a Refreshed Brand: Beaufurn Unveils A Bold New Look And Innovative Collections for NeoCon

Beaufurn is pleased to announce we will be exhibiting at NeoCon 2022, where we will highlight many superb new products in support of our commercial interior product line. Still more exciting is our unveiling of a complete brand refresh across all of our platforms, with a fresh look and feel that reflects the company’s evolution into an all-encompassing commercial furniture manufacturer. Beaufurn’s new look and logo will more accurately represent our commitment to innovation and our company’s role in furnishing inspired environments.

“While our business has transformed dramatically over the past few years, it became clear that perceptions of the company have not evolved at the same pace,” said Thomas Bongaerts, CEO of Beaufurn. “The brand refresh marks a new Beaufurn both inside the company and out, with a strategy hyper-focused on the commercial furnishings audience.”

The new brand identity, including a new logo, visual elements, and a streamlined user interface, makes its formal debut on the web as the company prepares to display at NeoCon 2022.

So what are design solutions for climate change? Designers and furniture manufacturers can make a promise of environmental responsibility. They can fulfill this by incorporating sustainable practices company-wide and utilizing eco-friendly materials.

Virtual Tours: Design Trade Shows Re-imagine Hospitality

Every year, we look forward to attending HD Expo in Las Vegas, then Neocon in Chicago, and BDNY in New York.  There are other shows, of course, but these are typically the big hospitality showcases in which Beaufurn participates.

Beaufurn modular furniture line for flexible design

This year, however, was a year of not-so-typical trade shows and exhibits. So, we adjusted, pivoted, and reimagined how to showcase our hospitality furniture to thousands of “visitors” unable to physically visit these expos.

The design industry has had to reimagine how it showcases its products and creative services while in quarantine. The “new normal” is now design revealed through webinars, virtual tours, digital showcases, and online conferences.

Beaufurn Training: “Old-World Apprenticeship” for the Future

In the 20th century, handmade products were all the rage. Apprenticeship opportunities boomed and so many of the products circulating the country were proudly built in the USA. However, the mid-1990’s marked the “near-death of furniture manufacturing” in North Carolina, when manufacturers began cutting costs by outsourcing labor; first to Mexico, then in China.

Thanks to this rise in outsourcing, we’re missing an entire generation of craftsmen; one polling determined that only employees over 45 years old have the hands-on upholstering experience and finishing skills needed to create the standard of furniture we see today. Beaufurn, on the other hand, has outlasted this outsourcing trend and is taking action to combat the worsening situation.
