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.

Overcoming ADA Design Hiccups

During our 30 years in business, we've had several projects where space planning, ADA accessible furniture and equipment integration did not always play nicely. As ADA-friendly spaces increase, the ubiquitous, all-in-one solution to presentation furniture becomes all but obsolete.

Solid Wood Versus Veneer

solid-wood-vs-veneer

We're about to cannonball right into a topic that has been discussed and argued many times over.

Why? Well, there's plenty of preconceived notions and opinions out there that advocate for one method of construction or the other. Interestingly enough, people are still divided on this front with strong advocacy and exclusivity for one side or the other. In our own experience, we've come across plenty of instances where a client has asked us to build using their preferred method.

Infocomm 2014 Recap

Happy July and Happy (almost) Independence Day!

As many of you may know, the annual Infocomm extravaganza happened last month and there were a record number of attendees – over 37,000! This year's show marked the 75th anniversary of Infocomm and its growth over the years was certainly reflected in the amount the foot traffic and interest we received and perceived at the event. At the show, held this year in Las Vegas, Nevada, we showcased a number of new products as well as some classics that we'd like to share with you, in case you were unable to attend or visit our booth.
