Office Specialty turns 125

The contemporary look of the new brand is designed to appeal to the new generation of designers and communicate Office Specialty’s commitment to developing high-quality storage solutions is just as relevant today as it was 125 years ago.


The new Office Specialty website ( demonstrates the design freedom offered by the company’s wide range of options and finishes. “We offer the broadest options in the industry, making it easy for designers to customize solutions that work both aesthetically and functionally,” says Tim Baxter, VP, Product Marketing.

To celebrate its 125th anniversary, Office Specialty has launched a contest called “What Do You Store?” with a prize of $5,000 and a custom-designed pedestal. Designers can enter at by sharing a photo of what they store – on their desk, in pedestals, in shared office storage cabinets or wherever they store stuff in their office. Contest closes Sept. 30, 2013.
