Best of Colorado 2017 – Office
The best venues to spend your 9-to-5 every day in Colorado
Where people work influences how people work. That's why the Best of Colorado includes the Best Offices in the state as apart of its annual people's choice coverage. Sure, a hot topic these days is how companies can capitalize on innovations that untether and mobilize employees – but not all work can be completed effectively from afar.
BEST OFFICE FURNITURE
In 2014, AFW launched Commercial Concepts by American Furniture Warehouse. The company says it not only carries a great selection of in-stock items but also has partnered with some of the industry’s top manufactures to help their customers create a custom workplace environment. The division has seen rapid success, completing large-scale projects like the Pepsi Center’s new Club Lexus and
conversion of the Historic Kacey Fine Furniture building into an eight-story office complex that houses Kroenke Sports & Entertainment. The Commercial Concepts by American Furniture Warehouse showroom is located inside the Compark Mega Store in Englewood.
BEST OFFICE SUPPLIES
Office Depot, which merged with OfficeMax in 2013, has annual sales of about $11 billion, employs about 38,000 associates and serves consumers and businesses in North America and abroad with some 1,400 retail stores. The stores offer free delivery, one-hour pickup, and, on the Office Depot website, articles such as “How to Create an Office Breakroom That’s Both Unique & Functional,” and “Inspire Creativity by Designing a Modern Collaborative Office.”
