We are delighted to announce that Herman Miller has formed a global strategic partnership with UK-based Naughtone, a leader in upholstered soft seating, chairs, stools, and occasional and meeting tables.
Naughtone’s products complement Herman Miller’s core offer, enabling us to provide customers with a more complete furniture package to support our Living Office concept and reflect the way that offices are designed and planned today. Through this partnership, we will also leverage naughtone’s upholstery expertise and existing operations to continue expanding our production and product development capabilities around the world.
Based in Harrogate, Yorkshire, naughtone was founded ten years ago and has grown rapidly in the collaborative market. Under the leadership of Kieron Bakewell, Mark Hammond, and Matt Welsh, naughtone has become known for their high quality manufacturing and innovative products such as the Hush wingback chair, Trace table, and the Always chair range. By partnering with Herman Miller, naughtone can leverage our extensive distribution network to introduce their products in new global markets.
