David Cashner

Designer + Sales Executive


As a Sales Executive, David brings 30 years of design and office furniture experience to the OFH team. David has witnessed, first hand, the transformation of the office environment into an exciting, dynamic and fun place to work. “As a baby boomer, I have watched the work place evolve. What we called an ‘open office’ years ago was a space with countless mazes of panel workstations. Today, the walls and barriers have all been removed and we are free to collaborate with one another, brainstorm and problem solve. We can work at a desk, sit in a chair or relax on a couch. We get work done and have fun - how great is that!” 

Read more about David.

After receiving his BFA in Interior Design and Space Planning from the Ringling School of Art & Design in Florida, David began his career at a Knoll Office Dealership in Miami. Learning the business from the ground up, he discovered his passion for office interiors, furniture specifications and project management.  Over the next twenty years, David immersed himself in the furniture industry, first in his own project management, specification and design firm, and later with Baer’s Furniture—a 16-location Florida residential furniture retailer. Throughout his career, David has worked closely with both the design community and end users as a sales person, a sales manager and project manager.

As fate would have it, David met his partner Chris, a New Yorker in Florida, and together they relocated to NYC in 2012.  David quickly learned his way around the city by working in the corporate housing industry, and earning his Real Estate license but he missed the creative challenges of interior design. David joined OFH in 2016 and returned to his roots in the office furniture industry.

David enjoys architecture, the arts, and keeping up with the latest design trends. In their free time, David and Chris spend weekends in the country and travel whenever the opportunity arises.
