Furniture Industry Research Association

Established in 1949, the Furniture Industry Research Association is the UK's largest furniture association and the only organisation that provides support to the whole furniture supply chain, across all sectors.

The Association is a unique, not-for-profit membership-based organisation, run by the furniture industry for the furniture industry.

Membership is open to all companies within, or with an interest, in the furniture market, giving access to unrivalled knowledge from standards to research, from regulation updates to the financial performance of the sector.

Additional membership benefits include discounts on testing and training with our service provider, FIRA International. Full members receive 'voucher credits' which can be redeemed against testing, consultancy, training and furniture aftercare from FIRA International.
