Frequently, furniture dealer partners are not brought in before the schematic design phase and this should not be the case. A dealer has multiple professionals on staff with valuable years of experience. Utilizing a dealer when brainstorming private office layouts and the ideal workstation can help save time and money to both the client and design firm.
Usually, the dealer only sells the furniture. The additional services a dealer provides are considered to be free of any charge.
A dealer designer is able to provide multiple idea starter layouts based on client’s desire and budget. This, in turn, allows a design firm to focus on materials, finishes, and overall look of the space. By freeing a Design firm from research and time put into the necessary details to provide a feasible, and well thought-out furniture solution, they are, in essence, saving the client money.
