Why You Should Consider Used Office Furniture For Your Office

office furniture

Whether you are a startup business working out of your home or you are a successful company ready for another round of expansion, the success of your business is directly tied with how you manage your finances. When it comes to where your money goes, you need to ask yourself what is important to you, your employees and your business as well as what you can afford. Prioritizing in a business is one of many keys to success and one huge piece that can often be overlooked when operating a business is the furnishings and decorations throughout the commercial space. Your office space is often the first impression potential clients and employees have of your business, so you want to keep it professional, clean, and up to date. But doing all three does not mean you have to outfit your space with the latest design trends or over the top furnishings. In fact, it does not even mean you have to race out to the store and buy a brand new set of desks, chairs, office partitions, or conference tables.

Used office furniture from a reputable store like Santa Fe Office Interiors in Overland Park and the greater Kansas City area is your one-stop-shop for finding the best line of used office furniture. Beyond saving money, you will be saving time because it will only take you one trip to our extensive 9000 sq. ft. showroom to find the best deals, quality products, and perfect style to match your office space and your budget.

Why should you consider buying used or preowned office furniture such as used desks, used chairs or used conference tables?

Reducing Environmental Impact

How about reducing environmental impact for starters? Plastics, rubbers and even some wood takes years to break down, if they do at all. Most materials used these days do not break down and therefore remain in the landfill forever. Every moment of every day around the world, waste is growing in landfills, natural habitats and our oceans. Of that collection of waste are used office furnishings as an ‘out with the old, in with the new’ mentality sweeps organizations globally. This often perfectly fine used furniture sees its end instead of seeing a new life at an affordable price. Whether the clearing is from stores that are making way for new inventory or office spaces who irresponsibly update their ‘look’ in an attempt to mask underlying issues, it is shortsighted behavior and mismanagement of resources that contributes to global waste. At Santa Fe Office Interiors in the greater Kansas City area, we believe that there is value and benefit in buying pre-owned furniture because in the act of saving the world from pollution and waste, every little contribution helps. Which brings us to another reason why you should buy pre-owned furniture for your next or first office redesign.


Let someone else take the hit for buying new office furniture. Keeping up with the trends of new furniture can be expensive and often result in taking a larger loss than reasonably necessary. Similar to a vehicle, new office furniture can depreciate rapidly while used office furniture often retains over 75% of its resale value. When you are looking to by the newest model desk or chair on the market, there is a high chance of unnecessarily breaking the bank. However, finding a similar design or style from a previous year, you are able to save money, not take a depreciation hit, all while keeping with the trends.
