Transforming Office Spaces

At FIL Furniture we help our customers to create workspaces that are space-efficient, productive, healthy, sustainable and cost-effective. We use circular economy engineering to extend the lifetime of commercial grade used, second hand furniture through upcycling and in some instances, remodelling. This could involve re-upholstery with compelling colours, a furniture facelift or resizing to maximise space efficiency.

Cost Savings of Upcycling vs Purchasing New Furniture

Many of our customers are amazed at what we can do for half the price of a new furniture purchase. This is because the componentry, manufacture, transport and sale of new furniture all involves multiple products and services, each of which has a margin applied.

FIL Furniture offer great value for money because we source second-hand furniture and then go about reusing, up-cycling and in some instances remodelling it. It is taken back up the supply chain, negating the need for new resources, recycling or waste. There are no re-sellers or middlemen. A lot of the componentry in commercial grade furniture is built to last a lifetime so up-cycling is the logical approach from both economic and environmental standpoints.

Getting Things Done

The typical process for getting underway is to contact FIL so we can meet, understand your needs and assess the potential of your workspace. If your existing furniture is still there we can discuss either the re-usability or ethical clearance options that are available.

The next step is to have our design team consult with you to understand the look and feel you envisage. We follow this by providing a draft spatial layout. Once you’re happy with the layout we will then go about costing the job at hand. All services are provided by our FIL staff so we can do everything from the concept right through to full installation. If you need an office clearance we will factor this into the costing as you may want us to take everything away or remodel and reuse some of the existing furniture.

Once you’ve given us some feedback on the costings and we have agreed on a final quotation, our work begins. You will only have to deal with one person for the entire project, so there’s no chasing furniture suppliers, installers, tradespeople or transport companies.
