Has your dream project turned into a logistical nightmare?

Logistical nightmare.

It is a glorious time for end users and designers – the accessibility to many different ancillary products, options and choices is exciting and promises to create a unique and perfect space.

However, once you’ve loaded up that Pinterest page and started contacting vendors, you realize its not as simple as it seems. Lead-times vary, order process and terms vary, order errors can have you waiting months for some items while others arrive all on the same day, with no where to store them.

Planning and specifying spaces should be inspiring and easy.

Steelcase Marketplace is your answer to a smooth process for ancillary furniture. The Steelcase Marketplace tool gives you access to new and unique brands while making your job simpler, saving time and bringing together project teams – beautifully.

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.

Waldner’s is a proud client of Spectrum Designs and we look forward to working with them on many more orders to come!

Cheers to 80 Years!

“It’s incredible, 80 years and three generations! But as of June 1st Austin Waldner, great grandson of Daniel Waldner, founder of Waldner’s, will be joining as the 4th generation. How many companies can say that?”   – Stephen Waldner, Owner

“As Waldner’s celebrates our 80th Anniversary, this provides a special opportunity to look back and appreciate our storied past which continues to serve as the basis for our success and our vision for the future. Many of our clients and the professionals we have had the privilege to work with over eight decades know that our company was originally founded by our grandfather, Daniel Waldner in 1939. He instilled in all of us the importance of providing outstanding service with a commitment to excellence.”- Meredith Waldner-Stern

“Today, Waldner’s is proud to be a thriving business with over 100 remarkable, talented employees over three locations and clients throughout the nation.  We have all evolved from the traditional office space and come a long way from the standard metal desk of 1939 to providing cutting edge solutions in furniture, technology and service for multiple industries. What makes it most meaningful for us in celebrating our history is to know that since 1939, Waldner’s has and will continue to grow with our clients and provide innovative solutions for all of those we serve into the future.” – Meredith Waldner-Stern

Each of Waldner’s local markets – Westchester, New Jersey, NYC, and Long Island – are excited and ready to respond to our customers’ demands for the workplace of the future and seeing our company and our clients continue to thrive over the next 80 years!”
