Everyone wants to feel secure that they are getting the best product for the best price when making a purchase; office furniture is no different. As such, we know that you will likely look at several different dealers before settling on the solution (and provider) that best fits your specific needs.
At Office Interiors, we understand that we may not always be the best fit for every organization or project. That is why we have compiled this list of the seven best office furniture dealers in Nova Scotia.
To remain impartial, I am recusing Office Interiors from this list.

How to Choose an Office Furniture Provider
Now that you are armed with some information on whom your options are, you might be wondering how best to compare these various office furniture dealers. From our experience in the industry, we find that the following four metrics will give you a pretty good baseline to compare your options.
- Measure their customer service experience with a metric such as Net Promoter Score?
- Offer the ability to customize their products or solutions?
- Provide ongoing (post-sale) service and support?
- Discuss budget early?
