Kentwood Office simplified the task of moving several locations into one larger, coordinated, cohesive space.
A large counseling services company wanted to centralize their operations.Â They consolidated several offices into one newly constructed facility.Â Their existing furniture was a random mixture of many different products.Â To outfit the new space, Kentwood Office Furniture blended new and remanufactured furniture.Â Kentwood was able to coordinate a buyback for what the product that they no longer needed.Â The customer was going for a more contemporary look with a soothing color palette.Â The 120 degree workstations suit the open call center and allow for additional seating when needed during a busy time.

Our office has now become a showplace for us versus the drab, dark space that it was.Â The color selections are outstanding.
A large marketing fulfillment company had added furnishings to their space over time and faced a random mix of furniture that was bland and outdated. They desired to brighten and update the office to fit their current brand. Kentwood suggested lowering the panel height and adding glass tiles to the panels to allow in more natural light from the front windows. These changes also helped create a more collaborative space between the workers. The addition of color created a fun, efficient workspace that fit the companyâ€™s personality.
