A Welcome from Paul Friant
Welcome to Friant, where our goal is to exceed our customer's expectations — in product selection, quality, service…and price. After growing up in the office furniture industry around my father's dealership, I started Friant in 1990 with the idea that quality furnishings should be accessible to everyone. We offer a fair pricing structure based on our true costs — by focusing on efficient manufacturing that keeps our overhead and production costs low, we can pass on the savings to you.
Friant offers a factory-direct process – we are the designers and manufacturers of our products, remaining accountable for its impeccable quality. With four U.S. locations and international manufacturing facilities, we build all our products with high-quality materials, skilled labor, and superior engineering. You'll notice the difference with Friant products.
Integral to our ability to keep costs low is our streamlined process — choosing from one of our standard programs (Quickship or XLT/Factory Direct) ensures you will receive both excellent service and product in the shortest timeline. Learn more about our Efficiency model here.
At Friant, we value our customers, our employees, and the integrity of our work. We are committed to the responsible use of resources – including using recycled fabrics, water-based wood finishes, and exceeding C.A.R.B. emission standards – while still offering quality products at the lowest prices.
It's our commitment to excellence.
