Benchmark is our Supplier of the Week, 7 – 13 November.
Set up with the intention of creating a craft-based workshop that could provide customers with quality and value, the Benchmark team have worked on perfecting this over the years. To this date the company has a strong view towards sustainability, both in terms of materials and production, as well as supporting apprentices and fostering young talent.
We spoke with the team to find out more.
What’s the story behind Benchmark?
Sean Sutcliffe and Terence Conran founded Benchmark in 1984 with a dream of creating a craft based workshop that produced furniture on a scale that would provide customers with high quality, beautifully designed furniture made in a responsible way and at a reasonable price. Now one of the leading and most technically advanced furniture makers in the UK, we make and sell our own furniture collection as well as working with many of the world's top architects and designers on bespoke projects fitting and furnishing offices, hotels, bars, restaurants and public buildings.
