Are you thinking about decorating your corner office with an upgraded suite of furnishings? Buying used executive office furniture may not seem very glamorous, but there are a couple of good reasons to go with pre-owned items instead of buying new.
Reason #1 – Status
Let’s face it – your desk, credenza, and shelving are all status symbols that let others know you are talented, experienced, and worth every penny of your salary. However, this doesn’t mean you have a lot of money to blow on expensive furnishings. Because used office furniture is deeply discounted, you can actually afford to buy something very posh for the same price as mid-level new items. As long as the pieces are refurbished nicely, no one will ever know they aren’t straight off the assembly line.
Reason #2 – Leadership
Sometimes, you want people to know that you are making sacrifices for the greater good. In a tight economy, buying used office furniture for yourself sets an excellent example for your subordinates. You are showing that reusing/recycling is something you take the personal initiative to implement. There’s no shame in being responsible with your company’s budget and kind to the planet!
