Some of our design team had the opportunity to visit one of our furniture supplier’s manufacturing plant. JSI is part of the Jasper Group family brands, and they manufacture furniture for business interiors. They provide seating and casegoods in traditional, transitional, and contemporary styles. They offer a full range of seating from lounge to task chairs, and their midwestern roots and hospitality is just one of the many reasons why Rieke Office Interiors partners up with them for many projects!
Just like ROI, JSI manufactures much of their product in the USA, Indiana to be exact. The facility tour was extremely inspiring, and we were able to see firsthand their manufacturing process. Our design team was very excited to see the wood working area. We were so impressed on how they bend wood to make their beautifully crafted chairs.
We learned the step by step process of how they upholster their seating as well. It was very impressive to see skill behind stapling fabric to the chairs. Watching these craftspeople at work further confirmed the high level of quality we expect from JSI. JSI takes extra steps to ensure their upholstery does not shift, unlike other brands of chairs on the market. Their quality standards differ from other manufacturers, and this truly benefits our clients.
The impressive corporate headquarters had an open view to the showroom that was quite spectacular. The company’s motto is “love what you do,” and that certainly comes through not only in the quality of the furniture, but in the innovative design, and passion we felt from their entire team.
Seeing the showroom sparked our design team’s creativity and enthusiasm in the products we already provide our clients. The cherry on top of our team’s tour was being able to see some prototype products set to launch in the near future. The finishes and textiles paired so beautifully together. So, if you are in the market, let us specify some high quality, gorgeous seating from JSI for your next project.
