Andy Stern’s Office Furniture, Inc. provides state of the art office furnishings and design services at competitive prices and our service is unmatched.
Established in 1948, our founder Sam Stern wanted to make a difference by providing customers with top quality office furniture at affordable prices. He opened his first shop in Washington, DC by reconditioning furniture pieces for the many offices throughout the area at night and delivering them during the day. Today, customers that are in need of office furniture can visit any one of our two showroom locations and experience that same commitment that Andy Stern’s Office Furniture, Inc. was built on more than 60 years ago.
What makes us unique is that we’re local, we’ve got over 60 years of experience, we’ve got three showrooms and we offer the best in personal service. Give us a call.
Take a look at our original TV ad filmed in 1988. It's only 30 seconds and it's really funny!
In 1948 our founder, Sam Stern (back from serving in Europe) opened the first Stern Office Furniture Showroom at 1159 21st Street, NW, Washington, DC.
A few years later Sam’s brother Saul, joined him in the business and by the 1960′s they had built a thriving business!
The Stern brother’s counted many of Washington’s finest businesses among their clients like this major bank they furnished in 1965.
By the 1970′s Sam’s son, Andy, had joined the business spending time in each of the company’s divisions learning how the company worked.
This is the story board for our TV ad. Filmed in January 1988 this commercial ran in the DC Metro Area until late 1989.
(See the video of the ad at the top of this page)
By the 1990′s Sam & Saul had retired and Andy had taken over the company renaming it Andy Stern’s Office Furniture, Inc.
Today we use state of the art Computer Aided Design software to design everything from a single office to a whole building . Everyone of our Account Executives are trained in its use.
Sam sold mostly war surplus office furniture which he refinished himself at night and delivered the next day on our first truck.
Always innovators, the Stern’s sold some of the first “systems” furniture ever produced in this country. This installation was from the late 1950′s.
The Stern’s became the first office furniture dealer in the Metro area to offer interior design & space planning services to their clients.
In 1975 the company had opened a retail division called the Office Furniture Mart that pioneered the concept of instock, affordable office furniture.
By the 1980′s the company had opened a state of the art distribution center conveniently located off of Rt. 495 to better serve the Metro area.
In November 2013 Andy and Sam were interviewed about the history of the company. To listen to the interview Click Here
