It’s Not Too Late to Start Out Q1 with a Refresh


It’s Not Too Late to Start Out Q1 with a Refresh
Mammoth Office Furniture in Herndon, Virginia

Maybe you’re stuck inside in the winter cold and snow, and you look around and start seeing that your furniture looks a bit drab. Is there still time to upgrade before it’s time for spring cleaning?

There is. In fact, many offices choose the month of February to purchase new chairs, desks and other furniture. Did you know that 80% of all used furniture shopping is done in February because St. Valentine was the patron saint of used furniture?

Okay, no. Just wanted to make sure you are paying attention. But really though, there’s no better way to say “I love you” to your whole office – and not in a creepy way! – than to purchase the right assets for the workspace and give people the gift of ergonomics and comfort.

It’s certainly better than a handful of sugary hard candies.

As for cost – your used furniture doesn’t have to break the bank. Check out Mammoth Office Furniture’s used office furniture price guide, where you can get chairs starting at $40 a piece, desks starting at around $300, cabinets for under $200 and various shapes and sizes of tables for conferencing and group work and anything else. Also, we work to fully re-condition our pre-owned inventory to a real, evident standard. We don’t just “recycle” – we curate our inventory to appeal to the purchaser. We know you have hard decisions to make – we want to make those decisions a lot easier!

Unlike stocking an office with candy, getting good replacement furniture is a real investment in people’s workspace and quality of life at work. Just ask us at Mammoth about how our customers have benefited from getting the right furnishings into their offices. Come down to our convenient Herndon, Virginia location and learn more about how we accomplish great delivery service, excellent customer service and a real dedication to quality.

We also like to outfit our clients in style – take a look at some of our new upholstery textiles from Guilford of Maine to get eye-popping colors with green materials that really drive innovation. We’re happy to show you around and help you to find the best new resources for your office – so that when the robins start singing and the tulips are popping up outside, you’ll have an interior that’s just as bright, colorful and pleasant as a fresh spring day!

Back to School – Looking for a Good Desk?
Mammoth Office Furniture in Herndon, Virginia

It’s that time again – all over the country, students of all ages are heading back to the classroom. From kindergarten to college, Americans are sharpening their pencils and getting their notebooks ready – and that means they are looking for everything they need to succeed!

Back-to-school season is always a big season for furniture retailers. Customers are looking for desks for young students who need a better place to study and keep their books and school supplies. Of course, some are also looking for a study desk for a commuting college student, or a home office desk for an adult who may be taking additional course work or starting a new career.

New and Used Desks Available at Mammoth Office Furniture

At Mammoth Office Furniture, we excel in helping our customers to find the best home desk solutions. Whether it’s a home office setup or a study desk, we can point our visitors in the right direction to get the furniture that will fit their budget while providing great results and long-lasting use.

With our extensive collection of new and used furniture, our customers have a lot to choose from. Take a look at these Aberdeen height adjustable bow front desks that really set the bar high for business or personal use. When you want a top of the line product, desks like these can be a good fit.

If it’s a student desk you’re looking for, you may want something a little more basic; for traditional wooden designs to fit into an elegant home environment, items like the Keswick table desk offer simplicity in design. Or here’s another choice from our catalog of suppliers –the Lorell Essentials Computer Workstation is just one of our designs that retails for under $300.

We also have used desks available: take a look at our Used Office Furniture Price Guide to get deals on desks and more. A 48 inch student desk starts at just $175!

Sitting and Standing or Adjustable Desk Options

Here’s another question you’ll want to ask when shopping for an office or study desk: what’s the best solution for your purchase, a sitting, standing or height-adjustable desk?

For business, standing desks are becoming extremely popular. Medical science is telling us that it’s a good idea to stand from time to time, to lower the pressure on the body’s circulatory system and generally to stretch your legs, preventing some of the problems we find come with long-term sitting.

On the other hand, for students, a standing desk is often unnecessary. Young people tend to be more active, and their studies don’t usually leave them sitting at their desks eight hours a day, so it may not make sense to invest in a standing desk model.

Come take a look at everything you can get for back-to-school time at Mammoth Office Furniture. Get great prices, excellent customer service and convenient delivery from our Herndon, VA location. We’re ready to help you bring your new desk home!

Your Modern, Minimalist Office

When it’s time to use a new office furniture plan to give a workspace a makeover and foster productivity and engagement, the big question is what to buy – and how to lay it out. At Mammoth Office Furniture, we invest in offering our customers our space planning design service because we know that it’s so important to approach this on a case-by-case basis. There’s no one single easy answer for creating the right modern minimalist look. However, we also know that there are specific guidelines that we see every day that are helpful ways to make your business look its best. We deal with customers day in and day out – we see the demand for a modern minimalist style. We know what this looks like, and we can help your company to plan your needs out quickly and effectively.

Low-Profile Furniture

We’re not in the days of King Louis anymore – and the kinds of grand oaken desks and tables that were so en vogue in past centuries are no longer what most of our customers are looking for. What companies want (or really, need) is sleek, modern designs that give the right impression – the impression of productivity and competitive modernization – the impression that there’s a lot going on in the room. Another big benefit of minimalist modern style, though, is that it gives people room to think. You might laugh at this idea unless you really walk through hundreds of offices and felt the effect of a lean, mean layout model compared to a cloistered, clustered mess.

Desk and Chair Designs

For some of our most popular desk and table designs, the key is slimming furniture down to a space. Browse our collection of popular minimalist desks and you’ll see pieces of furniture that are ultralight and ultraportable with “stick figure” design – immaculate white polished tabletops, or titanium or black surfaces with slim straight legs that allow people to see through the furniture into the room. There’s a lot that’s helpful about this design, as we can explain while we’re putting your design space plan together.

Chair Designs

Power chairs are important – and even some of the best models from ten years ago really don’t measure up to what you can get now. We like to promote certain types of Herman Miller chairs and other chair designs that go with your modern table or desk – for example, a rib-backed black executive chair that is, again, slimmed-down and streamlined as opposed to padded and bloated. There’s no room for extra padding in today’s office – in a wide variety of ways, less is more, and minimalist style is allowing companies to push their boundaries and explore the future. If this all sounds kind of abstract to you, come in and see what we’re about. Our furniture experts can show you why a clean, minimalist style is so engaging and what it does for a business every day. Let us help you to replace old, broken or worn furniture or design an entirely new space to take your business to the next level.
