Spotlight: Car Dealer’s New Construction Gets Designer-Style Furniture

The Perry Office Plus furniture team worked closely with an interior designer to select the style and finishes for this new construction at Cleo Bay Subaru in Killeen, Texas. The result is a cohesive, high-end look, perfect for a car dealership.

As a previous client, they brought us into the process early and selected their furniture prior to the building’s completion. As a result, the building’s millwork and countertops were selected to match the furniture, rather than trying to match the furniture to finishes already in place.

The reception station by Darran, with its frosted glass accents and WilsonArt solid surface reception top, offers a custom look at the entry. The client appreciated the attractive, easy to clean, non-porous solid surface material so much — as well as the wood finish on this piece — that they chose to use it throughout the built-in elements of the building.

The varied heights of the reception top adds visual interest and creates and even more custom look.

In the Sales and F&I offices, we selected JSI Vision veneer desking for a high-polish appearance. Glass tops were added to preserve the finish in a busy office environment. Encore Signal guest seating with coordinated wood backs complete the spaces.

Each space utilizes different storage options, including lateral files and overhead storage.

These JSI Solara chairs create a high-end conference area in a fabric coordinated with the room’s carpeting.

In the Service area, Advisor Stations at an elevated height allow staff to stand or use a stool. The Allsteel Terrace tiled system provided the framework, with metal perforated tiles and a contrasting silver trim for a high-design aesthetic.

Spotlight: Local Law Firm Collaborates with Perry for a Cohesive Office Renovation

The Carlson Law Firm in Killeen, Texas, purchased and renovated a building to relocate their offices in 2016. Management brought in Perry designers early in the project’s timeline, which ensured power & data placement during the renovation would coincide with furniture’s placement.

As with most renovations, floor plans were in flux throughout the selection process and Perry designers worked closely with the Carlson team to adapt the design to accommodate changes as needed. The result is a completely cohesive look where the furniture and the building are in sync.

In the lobby, Hon Convera Lounge seating in Silica Leather adds a professional, yet relaxed look to the calming space.

This look is echoed in the three executive conference rooms (below), which are outfitted with Allsteel Merge tables in Cafelle Walnut. These tables have an expanding center section that reveals a central power bay for plugging in devices as needed, and hiding it when not in use. Cord management in the table’s legs keep the floor clear, which was designed prior to the installation of the power outlet to ensure proper placement.

The training room uses mobile, nesting Allsteel Aware tables that can be easily rearranged. In fact, the room is often cleared for the staff’s morning exercise session, and can then easily be moved into a meeting or training arrangement as needed. The room is completed with nesting Allsteel Seek chairs.

Allsteel Optimize panels with Allsteel Involve storage were chosen for two call center-style rooms housing a total of 35 staff members. For the smaller room, lower panel heights allow for privacy without feeling closed off, while the larger room fits 20 workstations with varying panel heights, so both staff and supervisors can share the space. All workstations have power and data access built into the panels.

Low credenzas in some workstations offer varied, layered storage options, including lateral filing.

The large staff break room is filled with HON Motivate chairs and stools, and HON Preside & Flock tables in both diner and bar heights.

The owner’s office is the crowning jewel of this project. This space needed a traditional, executive look while remaining functional to meet with clients and guests. The walnut finishes of the JSI Brogan desking were chosen to coordinate with the wood flooring and built-in cabinetry. Multiple seating areas and a conference space were also included.

JSI traditional seating completed the space.

Furniture Project Profile: West Temple Orthodontics [ Healthcare Lobby Furniture ]

West Temple Orthodontics in Temple, Texas, approached us at Perry about updating the patient waiting area. They were concerned their seating was dated and not serving their patients. They asked for:

  • An upscale waiting area that would coordinate with their beautiful building and interior décor.
  • Appropriate seating for all size of patients accomplished in a subtle manner.
  • Accommodation of a children’s play area.
  • Dedicated space for patients who use laptops and do homework in the waiting area.

We worked with the owners to select the Gateway series from Legacy Furniture for the lobby seating. Gateway offers beautiful wood frame chairs with classic details, and includes benches and bariatric loveseats that were used in conjunction with single seat chairs. Perry staff worked with selections by the client’s interior designers to create a color palette of fabrics and wood to compliment the building.

For the student work area, an Allsteel Merge table with post legs was selected to provide maximum kneespace. Hon Pagoda chairs work double duty as small scale enough to fit comfortably at the table but heavy duty enough for different body types.

The final effect is a sophisticated waiting area, with invigorating colors and practical spaces for patients of all ages.
