Office Furniture: Spend Now or Spend Later?

Back to Blog
In tight financial times, finding a balance between the kind of office furniture you’d like and the kind you can afford may mean making sacrifices. (I’d love an office like the cool folks at Google have, but without a big lottery win, who am I kidding?)

When it comes to crunching budget numbers, though, long-term considerations are as important as your short-term needs. How long will your furniture need to last before the next upgrade? Will it be lightly or heavily used in the meantime? Are you likely to make big moves that mean disassembling and reassembling pieces? Higher quality items may cost more now, but their durability will mean less expense down the road.
