Our Sales Executive and Designer, David Cashner, was recently awarded the project to furnish a beautiful, spacious office for L.H. Frishkoff, a 35+ person boutique accounting firm in Midtown. In this blog, we will chronicle the preliminary phase of this project.
L.H. Frishkoff hired the architectural design firm MKDA and worked with their interior designer, Heather Gershen. After listening to their specific needs, requirements and aesthetic preferences, Heather created a design concept for their new space. L.H. Frishkoff was a longstanding client with OFH and included OFH in the bid process. David set to provide them with the information they needed to make an informed decision. He presented different furniture lines and brought the client and the design firm to numerous office furniture showrooms. From hundreds of different options, David helped them narrow down their selection and choose the perfect furniture that fit their aesthetic and budget.
With the pending office move, L.H. Frishkoff saw this as an opportunity to create a fresh new look for the firm. As an accounting firm, the client was concerned with having enough storage space to store away important documents. Much of the furniture the client chose was also custom, from executive desks to a unique reception desk. Working within budget and meeting the client's timeline were critical considerations. David was able to provide different visualizations of the furniture chosen, alongside the finish and textile selections to create an idea board that illustrated the look and feel of the space.
The project was sent to two bidders. OFH provided the most competitive pricing and the most well-executed ideas for furnishing the space. David’s background in design, knowledge of construction and attention to detail proved necessary in helping the client decide on the right furniture for their space. Once awarded the bid, David sat down with Heather and the client to make the final color selections and finalize the furniture specifications.
David is currently collaborating with the architects, contractors, and trades to coordinate the project and construction details. More images and information about this project are soon to come.
