Crafting a budget that works for your office is a matter of making the hard decisions about which things need to be prioritized and which will have to fall by the wayside.

Buying all-new office furniture could run you thousands of dollars or more, depending on the size of your office and the scope of your needs. Restoring your current furniture, however, does not cost nearly as much. You have the structure already, now all you need to do is to update and revamp the materials! Chairs can be reupholstered, desks can be refinished with wood stains or polishes, and shelving can be repurposed to suit a variety of needs. And you do not just have your own furniture to work with- buying restored office furniture from other sources through American Design Associates gives you a much wider range of options from which to choose, still at that budget-conscious price you love.

The investment that you make in office furniture should be one that pays off for years to come.

The Benefits of Restored Furniture

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Why should you restore your old office furniture with American Design Associates? We’ve got plenty of good reasons, and they might make you think twice about buying expensive new office furniture.

First, the line that all businesses are interested in, that is, the bottom line. Restoring your old office furniture saves you money. New furniture is expensive. Our restoration services are not only reasonably priced, but they also do a very good job at restoring your old office furniture to its former glory. Even if your office furniture is beyond restoration, it could be repurposed for use as a new piece.

Another reason to consider restoring your old office furniture is for the environmental benefits. Office furniture uses a lot of high quality wood, and you can slow the use of this wood by simply getting your old furniture restored. Restoration is a great way to reuse resources that are already available instead of using new ones. Not only that, but new furniture requires more energy to make than it does to restore furniture, meaning less CO2 is released into the atmosphere. For example, providing new furniture for a 100 room hotel would release about 125.32 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere. By comparison, restoring the old hotel furniture would only release 1.24 tons of CO2. That’s a huge difference, and really speaks to the environmental friendliness of restoring furniture.

If your Baltimore office is thinking about buying new furniture, first consider furniture restorations services from American Design Associates. You’ll be doing your wallet and the environment both a great favor.

Restore or Repurpose Your Furniture with American Design Associates

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

If you have old or outdated office furniture that you feel isn’t serving its full function, why not get it restored or repurposed? That old office furniture can be made into a green, environmentally sound refurbished piece of furniture that will serve you with many more years of usage. Stephen Ulrich at Bay Integrated Marketing had a few good (and green) reasons why you should repurpose or restore your office furniture:

  • It conserve natural resources – Since you’re not buying new furniture, you are saving the raw materials and energy that it takes to produce that furniture. It’s like you’re recycling your furniture and making those old materials new again!
  • You’ll reduce any waste – It is estimated that between 5 to 9 pounds of original materials is used in the manufacture of new product. That’s reduced to only a pound of natural resources when repurposing furniture. In addition to that, the labor that is involved in producing new office furniture is also conserved.
  • It can create a healthier office environment by reducing VOCs – There are a certain level of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) used in the production of office furniture. These VOCs are relased in the form of gasses that are given off during the first few years of a piece of office furniture’s life. By repurposing furniture, you are greatly reducing the VOC profile of that furniture and creating a healthier environment for you and your employees.
  • Utilize the lifespan of your office furniture – Furniture is built to have a 20-30 year lifespan on average. Getting rid of that furniture wastes the extra use that your company could have benefited from. Just because your office is changing doesn’t mean you have to discard useful furniture that can serve your new purpose or goal.

American Design Associates can help you repurpose or restore you office furniture to a useful condition. If we can restore or repurpose your existing furniture, there is nothing “Greener”. We can also remanufacture andor refinish your existing furniture. You can even consider selling us your current office furnishings. We’re flexible with whatever you decide to do with your current office furniture. The benefits and value is unmatched, let us prove to you what refurbished office furniture can do for your business.
