Refurbishment partnership delivering circular economy furniture solutions
Increasing customer confidence to purchase quality refurbished office furniture over new is important to help our customers be more sustainable in their furniture decision making and the recently announced partnership between Crown Workspace and Herman Miller helps deliver exactly that.
For over ten years, our award-winning Renew Centre has focused on Circular Economy outcomes by bringing redundant workplace furniture back into use based on both standard specifications and bespoke customer needs. Herman Miller products have always had a place in our services in this time, and we are delighted to have cemented this relationship by becoming a Herman Miller Authorised Refurbishment Partner.
Herman Miller products are well known for their meticulous performance, inspirational design and their safety and environmental quality standards. With our approved refurbishment processes, secure access to genuine Herman Miller parts and our knowledge sharing approach, our customers can now have complete peace of mind that our refurbished products meet these high expectations and standards.
We offer further reassurance with continued support post-purchase. All of our products come with a minimum of a 1-year warranty and we have a buy-back scheme for designer workspace products when they are no longer needed.
Aside from assurances on quality and support, there are weighty financial and environmental benefits to choosing to purchase quality used over new. A refurbished product can create a cost saving of up to 70%, and each purchase contributes to a circular and therefore sustainable approach to furniture.
When buying a refurbished item of furniture, instead of new, customers are saving carbon and also reducing waste. As an example, 15 refurbished Herman Miller chairs bought from us would save just over one tonne of CO2e. This is equivalent to the carbon needed to fully charge 120,000 smartphones.
Customers of Office Resale can enjoy iconic Herman Miller designed and manufactured furniture, refurbished with the highest quality processes and know they are also making a sustainable and cost-effective choice.
“We share a vision with Herman Miller around sustainability, and we will be helping to keep Herman Miller’s high-quality products in use for as long as possible, ensuring that Office Resale remains the best place to buy used office furniture from top brands.”
