Why Contract Furniture?

Posted by Karyl Walker on Mon, Jul 02, 2018 @ 08:51 PM

Maybe you’re new in this field or maybe you’ve been working in it for years but this is the first time you’ve been tasked with ordering new furniture for your facility. No big deal, everyone has bought furniture before—you go online or you go to the store, you pick out what you want, maybe from a show floor or maybe from a catalog, and within a matter of days, a week or two at most, bam, you’ve got a new room.
