In addition to the manufacturing process and the language used by a manufacturer to describe their furniture, take care to get a feel for the manufacturer’s values. Are they a family-owned company
that has been in business for decades or a major corporation known for churning out pieces of furniture in massive quantities? Does the manufacturer have ties with reputable small businesses and local organizations, or can their pieces be found just about anywhere? What does the company claim its values are, and how does this stack up against the way they produce their furniture, deal with other businesses, and implement their procedures? Ultimately, a company’s values will inform the degrees of care and craftsmanship that are used to construct their furniture. Additionally, these values will also set the foundation for their business relationship with your hotel.
