Inexpensive Ways To Dress Up Your Rack System

In today's spaces, the task of effortlessly corralling the now ubiquitous equipment rack has become somewhat complicated.  Occasionally, the solution is a simple if unappealing one: leave it in the corner of the room. The result? A high-end space with a frame of switchers, amplifiers and media players spewing out heat and cables from every direction.  Rather than leave the rack system bare, or hide it in a closet somewhere, consider dressing it up within a properly ventilated and attractive furniture solution. Marshall Furniture offers many inexpensive, high quality rack systems for your individual needs. Each model includes several standard features with room for a variety of options to personalize and blend your piece into a space.

Design & Decision-Making: How Architects & Interior Designers Ease The Custom Furniture Process

During the month of April, we at Marshall Furniture decided to hone our focus on all things architectural. Although we focus a lot on our products' ability to accommodate a wide range of technology, we also strive to make sure each build is a beautiful, one-of-a-kind piece. Even our Quick Ship line, developed as a low-cost alternative to our custom builds, elicits a high-quality feel. During the last thirty plus years of business, our furniture has evolved partly in response to customer, consultant and architect/designer feedback. As a whole, architects and interior designers in particular play an important role in the aesthetics of the custom furniture process. They have experience with what design elements work and are constantly keeping up with the latest design trends. Their ability to translate customer ideas into an architectural illustration acts as a concise framework for a furniture vendor.

Trends change, as we all know, and it's a designer's job to keep up with these trends. From the latest sustainable resources to what traditional aspects retain the most value year after year, designers are tasked with consistently updating their knowledge. So, regardless of whether a project needs a modern redesign or a unique incorporation of existing room architecture into a furniture build, a lot of insight can be gained from architects and interior design companies.

2016 Year in Review

Every January, our team at Marshall Furniture looks for new ways to continue our success and growth throughout the new year. To do this, we often look back at the previous year to evaluate our accomplishments and to determine our upcoming product and marketing focuses. Looking back at 2016, however, had a two-fold purpose for us. Last year, we were lucky enough to celebrate our 30th year in business. We celebrated in a variety of ways, like giveaways and prizes, but also by showing off our high-quality custom craftsmanship skills at tradeshows like Infocomm. What we discovered when we discussed last year's sales was that 2016 was filled with a variety of interesting and creative projects. Our design team each had their favorites so we felt it was only appropriate that we give those designs the attention they deserve. With 2016 still fresh in our minds, we'd like to take the opportunity to share, in detail, aspects of our most memorable projects.

Benefits of Digital Signage Furniture

Kiosks, Monitor Stands, Video Carts. Although these broad terms conjure different images for different people, they all link back to one general purpose: to display information, through images, video or direct interaction, to a specific audience. Regardless of the product chosen, these methods of communication have become integral to everyday life. Now more than ever, commercial businesses, schools and courtrooms are integrating some form of information display into their space to provide general information about a subject, a map for navigation or an interactive interface meant to answer questions quickly and efficiently. As various types of digital signage make their way into the mainstream, what follows is the need for a stylish and seamless way to blend technology into an existing space. Although the display typically speaks for itself, it is important to make sure that it accurately represents an entity’s image. It would be beneficial, therefore, to consider a custom furniture solution that can unify digital signage with the characteristics of a space, whether it be a high-end conference room, a traditionally adorned ivy-league university or an upscale office with modern flair. By specifying an enclosure for a digital signage monitor, not only are users able to match the aesthetic properties of their space, but they can also incorporate custom security, ventilation and cable access options in their design.
