British Furniture Manufacturers


Stronger Together

The British Furniture Manufacturers (BFM) is a trade association, which has represented the interests of the nation’s furniture industry since 1947. We have a rich history that includes a range of well-known members.

Our mission is to be the voice of the industry, providing effective representation and a range of appropriate services that embrace the needs of our members and add value.

Membership is designed to enhance your business and your business interests as part of a collective body supporting your industry. It is open to manufacturing companies in all sectors including upholstery, cabinet, bathroom, kitchen, and office furniture, and mattresses and beds.

We provide regular industry updates through our news and blogs and also analyse key figures and trends in our Economic Updates, so members can easily identify opportunities within the sector.

The BFM also lobbies and advances the interests of the furniture industry directly with government and through the British Furniture Confederation (BFC) and the All Party Parliamentary Furniture Industry Group of the House of Commons.

As members of BFM, collectively we are 'Stronger Together'.
