We often get calls from customers asking what size office desk they should be buying, but it is an impossible question to answer easily without more information .
It’s a bit like someone asking a car dealer what type of car should they buy. There are so many factors that to answer the question you do really need to give your office furniture dealer as much information as you can.
You need to think about this question logically, which means starting with factors that you cannot change.
For example the size of the office space and the number of people which have to be fitted into this space. Most office furniture dealers know the minimum square meterage of space, including walkways, which they need to allow per person, so can easily come up with a benchmark size of desk per person.
Producing an office furniture catalogue can be a nightmare. Firstly, you have to understand the furniture market. Furniture manufacturers don’t usually sell directly to end users, they normally have a network of dealers and re-sellers and most business furniture dealers have a large number of manufacturers on their books.

Not all furniture dealers are the same…..when choosing an office furniture dealer you need to be aware
of a number of factors. It is worth remembering that most furniture manufacturers will not deal with individual customers: they usually each make a limited range of products, for example boardroom tables or office chairs, and they don’t have the logistics and sales organisation to service individual customers. Usually they operate through a network of business furniture dealers.
The office furniture market is particularly competitive at the moment. There are far fewer furniture projects around due to the fact that there are fewer companies being created and relocation and office refurbishment projects have been cancelled or delayed due to budget constraints. Many smaller furniture dealers are feeling the pinch, particularly those with high overheads associated with local showrooms and high staff numbers.
