Putting you first!
No project is too big or too small, and regardless of the size of the project, we will pay as much attention to the comfort of one office chair as a whole office fit-out for 500 staff.
We believe in making the customer experience as smooth as possible, which is why we assign one of our Directors to champion every project from start to finish.
What’s the best thing about working with us?
We believe our strengths lie in sourcing the right furniture for your workspace. Regardless of your budget or how short the lead time is, we can develop solutions based on our extensive network of partners, who we know can deliver exactly what you need, when you need it.
We will guide you through the project keeping you updated about any developments along the way. We believe in working closely with our customers post-installation, which is why we offer maintenance services ensuring your furniture works for you over time and provides the value for money you should expect.
Why work with us?
As an independent furniture dealership, we have access to the broader market and can negotiate great prices. Our experienced, professional team offers a range of services from expert design, functionality and comfort specifications, showroom tours (virtually if necessary), mock-ups and fabric and finish reviews.
We always assign a single trusted point of contact for efficient and fast communication and all projects are overseen by one of our Directors. We believe in providing honest and transparent updates throughout the project.
The Collaborate team went the extra mile at all stages of the project, you can tell they love what they do! We would whole-heartedly recommend Collaborate London.
