Deciding on furniture for your office should be a fun experience — a creative outlet to express your corporate culture and communicate your brand values. However, it can also be overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. With the right furniture partner, no matter how big or small your office design project is, curating a well-appointed furniture collection can be a rewarding experience. To help ensure the best working experience for your employees, we’ve put together a furniture checklist to get the most out of your workplace partner.
Experience counts when it comes to working with a furniture partner. Approach your furniture wholesaler and designer as an extension of your design team. Equipped with the knowledge on the latest office trends and skilled in project management, they’ll be able to translate your furniture needs into practical, functional design, delivered on time and on budget.
In today’s personalized-centric world, having a variety of furniture options is a must. While most workstations are cookie-cutter, social and collaboration areas can be primed for your unique culture. Work with a partner who has access to reputable furniture brands and can offer customizable solutions to fit your agile office needs.

Value comes in all sizes. From competitive pricing to shorter lead times and having a design-eye. Evaluate your furniture partner on the three E’s to determine their added value.
1. Does your furniture partner encourage you to communicate your culture through design.
2. Do you feel empowered to achieve affordable design solutions with a sense of ease and control.
3. Does your furniture partner help elevate your workplace style to better serve employees.
