The purchasing of furniture for Western has been greatly streamlined through the use of Western Marketplace and the assistance of an expert buyer available Tuesday thru Thursdays. Here are a few guidelines to help in the process.

For Standard Furniture Needs

(Seating, tables, sit-stand desks, file cabinets, side chairs, etc. using department budgets)

Log into the Western Marketplace and shop the furniture suppliers with whom we have preferential pricing, excellent warranty, and delivery direct to your office location!

There are a range of options and price points to meet any budget needs. Delivery time for most items is 2-3 weeks. Placing your order directly through the Marketplace is a quick and efficient method of getting your order processed.

Need a Quote or Planning for a Larger Project?

If you are in need of a quote for specialized furniture or are planning a larger project (eg. new building or office refresh), complete the furniture esign form.

The furniture buyer will reach out to you after receiving the esign form to begin the process.

Major Renovation or Remodel?

Furniture and office equipment for a major renovation or remodeling project must be coordinated with Capital Planning and Development and are generally funded under capital budget allocations. A Project Manager will have been assigned to these and you should coordinate with them on your furniture needs.

If you receive furniture that is not what you ordered or is damaged, please contact the Procurement Department as soon as possible with as much detail about the issue as possible (photos, incorrect model numbers, etc.) so that we can contact the supplier and arrange for the problem to be fixed.
