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 https://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.

This is sometimes more expensive, but the Purchasing Department can provide further guidance regarding this option.
