The History of Workplace Resource

30 Years Strong in Colorado

30 years ago, Herman Miller opened a Colorado dealership called Office Pavilion in Denver’s Larimer Square. And while our name has since changed, our specialties and values remain the same.

Workplace Resource specializes in commercial, education, government, and healthcare spaces throughout Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, and Nebraska. We're a leading provider of workplace environment solutions, products, and services, and the trusted source for the industry’s most innovative and inspiring brands. We are the region’s only Herman Miller Certified Dealer.

At Workplace Resource, we don’t just see an office; we see your vision, mission, culture, and values reflected in that space. We don’t just see employees; we see the power of human potential to produce, collaborate, create, and be happy and healthy. We don’t just see furniture; we see inspirational places and spaces that awaken, inspire, elevate, and foster all things possible in the workplace.

We believe in the power, spirit, and possibilities of the workplace. Yours and ours.

We approach your workplace strategically, designing it to yield the most from your human capital. We work with the world’s leading thinkers and designers to apply a greater understanding of people—how we think, how we are motivated, and how we create and collaborate. We tailor this knowledge to your organization to create a more natural and desirable workplace that fosters connection, creativity, productivity, and greater prosperity for all. And we promise a flawless, timely execution of your project.
