Meet the Manufacturer: Friant

WRITTEN BY rightsize

Rightsize approaches each new project with a commitment to find the best solutions for a client’s timeline, budget and preferences. We work closely with our clients to PLAN every detail of their office space, whether it’s a move, expansion or consolidation. We do a thorough needs analysis, then specify and procure the right pieces to FURNISH your space.

Because all of our clients have a unique aesthetic and set of requirements, we partner with a variety of contract furniture manufacturers. By selecting from more than 200 premium lines, Rightsize can find the perfect fit for every project.

Friant, one of our contract furniture partners, has a mission that we share: to make beautiful offices accessible to everyone. Paul Friant, president and CEO, launched the company in 1990 with a $1500 loan. Since then, he’s grown Friant into an innovative furniture manufacturing company with a 150,000 square-foot custom wood and fabric shop located in Oakland, California.

Friant’s office furnishings range from custom casegoods and conference tables, to panel systems and seating. The company aims to streamline its production to offer high-quality products at reasonable prices. It serves cost- and style-conscious clients from around the country, configuring the installations to fit each space and working environment.

Friant is committed to incorporating environmentally-friendly practices into every stage of its production. The company has found ways to save energy, minimize packing space, cut down on fuel costs, and decrease fabric waste. It also features eco-friendly finishes and fabrics made from a blend of recycled polyester fibers. These green business ideas are good for the planet, but they’re also good for Friant’s bottom line – cost savings that are reflected in the company’s affordable rates.

Rightsize is proud to partner with Friant and offer its furniture to clients throughout the country.
