A local real estate company was ready to update their office space located in a historic downtown Lafayette building. The client’s current furnishings included 25 year old dark and tired workstations which did not reflect their current brand. Kentwood Office Furniture’s design team evaluated the current space and provided a proposal for the client’s review. The proposal included a mix of products that met the customer’s design, functionality and budget needs. Kentwood utilized remanufactured Herman Miller Action Office workstations with glass toppers to brighten the space and improve sight lines throughout the office. New, streamlined seating provides a sophisticated, high-tech aesthetic with employee comfort and ergonomic benefit at the forefront. A custom reception station provides the perfect first impression. As central Indiana’s real estate needs continue to grow, the client is now positioned to provide the ongoing leadership the region has come to expect.

A local health care organization was looking to improve their community health care program. To do so, they needed to move from their current location to a new building that was better located and had more space. To complete their health care offerings, they partnered with a dental clinic and a mental health counseling service. While they had some furniture pieces that could be reused, they needed to replace many old, worn out and mismatched pieces. Kentwood Office worked with the client to create a cohesive design and efficient space plan. Kentwood suggested remanufactured Herman Miller stations to outfit the space with functional, up to date stations to house staff and residents in training. The use of glass stackers kept the space open and full of natural light. Trendway TrendWall was the perfect floor-to-ceiling application to create additional private offices that could easily adjust with future changing needs.
