Does anyone have a good ideas on where to get office decor items(coffee tables, bookshelves, etc)
You mean other than a furniture store?
Craig's List. You can find just about anything on there. It'll be used, but unless you're wanting to go to the furniture store and drop big $$$ on new stuff, used isn't a bad thing. You may also want to look at consignment shops in town. Even antique shops would be a place to see what you can find. Just depends on what you're looking for.
Yeah I know, kind of a dumb question... Tried the usual places, can't find bookshelves that match the current decor, AND that I am willing to pay for(getting cheap)..
I was going to say what Spiff said, Craigslist.
Also do a search for auctions in your area. Most cities have a place that does auctions for companies that are going out of business.
I bought some pretty nice barely used furniture from my landlord....it was from a mortgage company that went and skipped out early on their lease, but left the furniture behind. Cost me pennies on the dollar.
Anyone interested in any real input: officefurniture2go.com
This is assuming you want quality and value, not cheap shit.
I bought some stuff from a furniture liquidator a few years ago - boardroom table, chairs, etc. But it was new, not used (overstocks I assume). I got the stuff, good price. Bizchair.com
We just outfitted our office and found internet deals on everything. Find what you want online then use a coupon-site to get discounts.
From indy's getting out of the business.
In larger metropolitan many wirehouse branches have been/are in the process of being shut down (excuse me, "consolidated") following a merger. Tons of suddenly surplus furniture there that they have to blow out - way larger opportunity than trying to find an indy shutting down.
