THINK OUTSIDE THE CUBE
A Strong Partnership: It's about the experience! While product and budget are important factors of a project, the experience is invaluable. We establish and grow our relationships to ensure each customer has an inspiring experience, no matter their needs. Sharing in responsibility, contribution, and vision, we aim to create an effortless dialogue between all partners included in the project process. We believe, projects are more than products; it’s about creating the right team to deliver the best solutions.
Furniture is the fun part! We understand specifying commercial furniture can be a daunting task, so we strive to simplify the process. Through a combination of specialized technology, live design, showroom visits, site tours, and customer service, we’ve made it a priority to ensure the experience is seamless and catered to your vision.
We have 4 locations, Rochester, Syracuse, Ithaca, and Corning New York. We invite you to experience Sedgwick and everything we have to offer as your complete source of innovative and classic interior furnishings, related services, and solutions.
