Frequently Asked Questions
What is an independent furniture dealer?
As an independent furniture dealer, Joyce Contract Interiors is not tied to any single line of furniture. This is an advantage for our clients because we can pick and choose which manufacturers provide the best deals based on quality, warranties, and price point.
What is the process for ordering office furniture?
We often get questions about the process of selecting and ordering new workstations or other significant office purchases. To help envision the process, we’ve outlined our basic steps:
- We first suggest that our clients take a look at the examples on our website to help them get an idea of the systems they would like to see in their space, offering to answer any questions or make suggestions.
- We then communicate with our clients to get a full list of their furniture and accessory needs based on the types of work that is being done in each area. After this discussion, we request a scaled CAD plan of the space in order to test fit and lay out the discussed furnishings. This process allows us to make sure the furniture will fit before it is purchased. Often during this process we will go to the site and perform field measurements to confirm the client’s floor plan.
- Once the layout is complete and has been approved by our client, we will create a 3-D visual to help visualize the furnishings within the space. Clients next select their choices of fabric, paint, and laminate colors.
- After all of the details have been ironed out, we send an official detailed quote to the client, which needs to be signed and returned before the order can be placed with our manufacturers. We require a 50% deposit on all orders.
- After the furniture is ordered, it typically takes about 3-4 weeks, depending on what was ordered, to reach our installer’s warehouse. We will then call and schedule an install date for that week. Upon completion of successful installation, the client will be invoiced the remaining balance.
You may find it helpful to review our Helpful Tips for Office Moves and Installation & Purchasing Office Furniture.
How long will it take for us to receive the furniture?
Typical lead times are about 3-4 weeks depending on what you are purchasing. Some products may be ordered and received faster as part of a quick ship program, but in those cases the types of furniture and finish options may be more limited.
What is the cost to get my product delivered?
Delivery costs are calculated by our installers based on many factors: the amount of product being ordered, the location to which it is being delivered, whether or not the building has a loading dock or an elevator, whether the building is union or non-union, and if the delivery can be done during regular business hours or if it needs to be done on overtime.
Because each job is different, it is best to call and get a quote from one of our knowledgeable salespeople. (Note that because of the complexities involved, getting a quote may take a few days.)
What is Benching?
What is the difference between Benching and Cubicles?
- As a general overview, cubicles are panel-based workstations that provide the most privacy from other employees; benching has either no or minimal panels and provides an open-style row of desks meant to encourage collaboration.
- Cubicles can come in many sizes and configurations depending on the client’s needs. Panels come in 39″, 47″, 53″, 67″, and 85″ heights, comprised of fabric, glass, and whiteboard finishes.
- Benching or desking is typically used in smaller workspace configurations and can measure anywhere from 3′ to 7′. If privacy is needed, privacy screens with heights of 8″ to 24″ can be added.
What are Sit/Stand or Height Adjustable desks?
As more research has been conducted on the effects of sitting for long hours during the work day, it has been found that over-sitting can have significant negative effects on your health.
As a way of combating these negative effects, height adjustable desks have been introduced as a way for people to stand periodically throughout the work day. They can be programmed at different heights if electronic or pneumatic, or they can be hand-cranked to the height you need.
How many chairs can you fit around a Conference Room Table?
A typical conference room chair is about 22″, and as a rule you should leave 4″ on either side of the chair. So, expect to leave 30″ for each chair. A general rule is:
Number of chairs = table size or circumference / (width of chair + 8″)
For example, if you have a 60″x 36″ table and divide each side by 30″, the 60″ side would allow 1-2 chairs and the 36″ side would allow only 1 chair, giving a total of 4-6 chairs at that table. Note: with round or oval tables you
What is a Huddle Room?
As cubicle walls go down, noise goes up; although collaborative workstations work well in some situations, there is still a need for space that is private. Thus, small areas/rooms called Huddle Rooms evolved. These rooms are typically designed to hold 2-4 people and are ideal for impromptu meetings or phone and video conferencing.
