Waldner’s Partners with Spectrum Designs

Waldner’s recently called on Spectrum Designs for support with our annual Cupcake Wars event, at the Steelcase Worklife Center in NYC. Ten teams of 4-5 designers/architects from throughout the Tri-state area compete by decorating cupcakes to a holiday theme. The team with the most creative and well executed  cupcakes wins the title of Cupcake Wars Champions!

With all this sugar-filled fun (and potential for spills and splats), we called on Spectrum Designs to deliver 100+ custom aprons for everyone at the event. The entire process – from the initial call to placing the order, to opening the apron-filled boxes a couple weeks later – went as smoothly as icing on a… cupcake! We were able to keep the competitors (relatively) mess-free, and all the participants got to take home a custom souvenir apron, courtesy of Spectrum Designs!

Spectrum Designs is a nonprofit custom apparel business with a social mission – to help individuals with Autism lead productive and meaningful lives through the world of work. To date, Spectrum Designs, has impacted the lives of 70 individuals and their families and created over 15,000 paid hours of meaningful work for individuals with Autism.

Favorite Furniture Friday – Steve

We’ve challenged Waldner's employees to pick just one piece of furniture as their favorite. In the following Fridays, we’ll reveal their choices to you!


Happy Favorite Furniture Friday! This week we bring you Steve Peck, Sales Account Manager here at Waldner’s. Steve’s favorite piece of furniture is the Gesture chair because it is the only chair that puts his previous favorite chair (Aeron chair by Herman Miller) to shame. The gesture chair by Steelcase supports the greatest range of postures in three ways: the back, the seat and the arms. Gesture changes shape and mimics the natural motion of the spine contouring to the user and creating the deepest recline.

Leigh’s favorite piece of furniture is the Coalesse Lox Chair because of its modern, contemporary look. It provides sleek and comfortable seating for social spaces or for planned collaboration in meeting rooms. You can individualize the black or white shell with fabric or leather and swivel with ease on a polished aluminum base.
