Contract Furniture Is What Exactly?

February 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 239

Have you ever wondered just what contract furniture is? It's a common question among those in the market for any kind of furniture and often misinterpreted as something completely different than what it is. Is it furniture built by commission? Is it furniture that contracts? Let's clear up any confusion on the subject and take a look at what it really is.

By Definition

The definition of contract furniture is simple yet leaves room for more questions. It is simply any furniture that is not intended for use in residential purposes. So office furniture is contract furniture, as well as any furniture that is used in waiting rooms, hospitals, restaurants, hotels, offices, day cares, schools, and the list is endless.

By Any Other Name

So if you are looking for office furniture, you are actually looking for contract furniture. What about some of those great comfortable chairs from luxury hotels, or that living room comfortable chair in your doctor's waiting room? Yes it is contract furniture even though it technically is used in the home. It is the same with furniture that the government provides for housing its military troops or foreign diplomats. Although it is indeed in a house, a residential setting, it has been contracted by the government and most likely in large quantities to uniformly supply the same pieces for every barracks or household.

What is the purpose?

The purpose is to ensure that a company or entity that needs a large number of furniture pieces can get them at a reasonable rate and specified delivery as well as possibly with a maintenance contract, and that the pieces are all the same or similar and meet with the standards of the company contracting for the furniture. It also means that if you are buying office furniture for your small business, whether or not you have a contract, your furniture is designed and made for just that purpose and most likely is made with more durable materials.

The Bottom Line

The bottom line is that contract furniture is made or provided to a company or entity by contract and intended for commercial use; even though some of it seems like the same pieces you have in your home or could easily put in your home. The pieces that are provided to homes such as for military housing are still of a higher standard of material or put together in a way that ensures safe and practical use.
