Designing Custom Senior Living Furniture for Accessibility

Designing Custom Senior Living Furniture for Accessibility

Senior living furniture needs to be durable and built to last. While choosing from manufacturer’s senior living furniture collections may be easy for some companies, others have a more specific design in mind. At Northland Furniture, if one of our senior living furniture collections doesn’t meet your specifications, we can custom design and manufacture the perfect pieces for your community.

We’ve been manufacturing senior living furniture in Bend, Oregon, since 1976. Some of our dedicated craftsmen have been with Northland for 30 years and many other upwards of 15 years. Our craftsmen known senior living furniture inside and out. The longevity of our team and our ability to design and manufacture furniture to your specifications gives us an advantage in the industry.
