The University's preferred office furniture supplier is Haworth.  This arrangement was in place through March 2013 and has not yet been renewed.  Haworth products, including Ergonomic and Environmentally Friendly furniture, can be viewed at www.haworth.com.

University authorized dealers may also provide service to the Rutgers community.  In addition to the Haworth furniture line, these dealers can provide pricing for "B" line (or lesser quality furniture) such as Hon, Global, National or Lacasse.

Please note that furniture may not be purchased through office supply vendors such as Staples or WB Mason.

Design and layout drawings supplied by our vendors are free if the quoted furniture is purchased.  It does not happen often but if you have asked a furniture vendor to supply you with drawings on the furniture layout you desire and you choose to purchase from another vendor, then you will be obligated to pay for the design.  If this is a possibility, obtaining a price for the design at the beginning of the process is strongly recommended.  As a word of caution, drawings often come with some errors and need review and revision so please do not proceed with any furniture purchase without a thorough review of the design documents. 

The University Approved Vendors are:

  • Commercial Furniture Interiors - Located in Mountainside, NJ.  Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.
  • Bellia Office Furniture - Most often used to service the Camden campus and is located in Woodbury, NJ.  Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.
  • Meadows Office Furniture - Located in Fairlawn, NJ.  Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.

Additionally, furniture may be purchased from vendors on the NJ state contract, particularly if matches need to be made to existing Steelcase furniture in certain departments.  This is sometimes more expensive, but the Purchasing Department can provide further guidance regarding this option.  The University contact for such purchases is This email address is being protected from spambots.

Design services are available through the Facilities Project Administration Senior Interior Design Specialist, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. at 848-445-2530.

 

In all cases, new furniture can be received, delivered and installed by the University's Surplus & Material Services division.  Information regarding these services and associated costs can be found on their webpage.  Individual dealers also offer delivery and installation services at an additional cost.

If the existing furniture will be sent to the Material Services Warehouse, it is considered Surplus and a Surplus Form is needed. Please make arrangements with Material Services to have existing furniture picked up in coordination with new furniture deliveries. Departments are issued Fire Code Violations when surplus furniture or equipment is left in hallways, so it is imperative that surplus pickups be coordinated to coincide with new furniture deliveries.
