Bensons for Beds and Harveys have received the BSI Kitemark for Domestic Furniture accreditation across 34 products, for the first time in the brands’ history.

BSI is one of the world's best-recognised symbols of expertise and safety, and 18 items from Harveys’ range of products have received the accreditation, plus 16 of Bensons' bespoke mattresses, chairs and ottoman boxes. Bensons was the first bed retailer in the UK to receive the accreditation.

Before certification is received, a lengthy testing period is carried out, including assessments on factory process control, technical reviews and sample product testing.

Bensons' MD Alan Williams says: “Quality is paramount to our business and this accreditation is testament to our high-quality products. We’re delighted to have such a wealth of products receive the BSI Kitemark – an accreditation consumers know they can trust. This certification goes a long way in showing our customers what they can expect from both Bensons for Beds and Harveys – which is incredibly high standards and quality across the board.”
