By Laura W. Rosen, Director of Marketing | 1 Source Office Furniture
As an owner of 1 Source Office Furniture in Baltimore, Maryland, I devote much of my effort to clarifying people’s thoughts, goals, and misconceptions about office furniture. CEO’s of growing companies choose 1 Source for mid-priced, value-driven products for all areas of the workplace. We help office furniture buyers understand which products are best for their workplace, based on the needs of their staff and the office they will occupy.
To help with the process of choosing and purchasing office furniture, I have provided some common questions and answers.
What size furnishings will fit in my office?
When custom sized furniture is needed, LogiFlex (in Canada), is just one of our go-to-sources for custom laminate tops, conference tables, desks, and reception counters.
This initial consultation and space plan are complimentary because it is important for clients to hear all of their best options when planning a newly furnished workspace.
Which brands or manufacturers are best for me?
Tell your office furnishings dealer in Maryland whether you prefer furniture that is American-made, green (environmentally friendly), quick-ship, or anything else that may be important in the final decision.
1 Source Office Furniture is Baltimore’s leader in mid-priced business furnishings since 2010. 1 Source sells furnishings that business owners don’t typically see in a dealer showroom. When office furniture buyers want the major brands, including HON, National, 9-to-5 Seating, All Seating, Open Plan Systems, and LogiFlex, 1 Source has a wide selection. A brand name is kind of like a favorite pair of jeans; it’s not about the label so much as how well they fit you and look good year after year.
Should I buy modular office furniture?
1 Source also recommends mobile file pedestals because they can pop in anywhere, switching from right to left side at a desk or any other place within the office. With the addition of an upholstered top, the mobile pedestal doubles as a seat.
Many office furniture manufacturers have modular products and that’s why this is a great time to invest in quality office furniture in Maryland (or beyond) which will handle the needs of your growing business.
Are workstations right for my office?
1 Source has workstations and benching by Open Plan Systems, LogiFlex, Friant, and AMQ Solutions. Many of these products have sit-to-stand option so that employees can adjust their desks to work in comfort all day.
Is office furniture financing available?
How long does it take to get furniture after I order?
These suggested timelines allow for consultation, proposal, revisions, and delivery of all the desired furniture. In addition, some manufacturers offer select chairs and desks by quick ship when the time is short.
