Office Furniture Warehouse is hosting a community celebration of its 10th year in business on June 8, at their showroom and offices in East Chattanooga. John Jerman (JJ), president and founder of OFW, is an architect by trade. Working in Atlanta around 2007, he received a call from a distressed client. He had helped design and furnish the client’s office space roughly six months earlier (a six-figure project) – now, they had to move, “and they’re going to charge me $30,000 to throw it all away,” the client told him. Mr. Jerman was floored – hundreds of thousands of dollars in new furniture was going to become hundreds of thousands of pounds of landfill waste. “Let me call you back,” he said. What ended up happening was a brokered deal with one of Mr. Jerman’s other clients to keep the furniture out of the landfill, but what really occurred was the inception of OFW.

Office Furniture Warehouse (OFW) opened up shop at a repurposed, three-bay car garage in Cleveland. Since beginning with used furniture, the company has branched into new furniture and furniture services, growing to a staff of 22 that coordinates operations across the greater Southeast.

“We’ve simply responded to our clients’ needs,” said Mr. Jerman. “In these past 10 years, OFW has continued building relationships with business owners and management through sustainable solutions unique to each work environment. Anyone can sell you furniture – we’re here to make your workspace work as hard as you do.”

Office Furniture Warehouse, LLC, will be hosting a celebration of its tenth year in business on Friday, June 8, from 4-7 p.m. at 1900 Stuart Street, Chattanooga, Tn. 37406 in their offices and showroom. Guests of at the free event can enjoy local brews on tap, barbecue plates and a chance to win door prizes including tickets to the July 4th Lookouts game.
