Annual Sponsor Spotlight: PacificWRO

Company Name:

PacificWRO is Oregon’s only Herman Miller Certified Dealer, and we are passionate about designing and furnishing spaces that inspire people. As a contract furnishings dealer, we specialize in helping people design the right space, select the right furniture, and install the project in the right timeframe. In addition to Herman Miller, we source furniture from hundreds of other brands to ensure that our clients achieve the look and feel that they are proud to show off.

What is your favorite IIDA event and why?:
The Annual Design Crawl is our favorite event of the year. Think about it – we’re chauffeured around town in a tour bus, we get to visit some of the top design projects in Portland, and we get to spend quality time with friends and associates in our industry… it’s a win-win-win event for everyone!

What is your favorite product/service offered by your company and why?:
At PacificWRO our finish line is not simply furnishing an office, but rather it’s helping our clients plan every last detail so they end up with a space they love.

That means we obsess over the small details because the truth is – they’re not so small. In our industry, attention to detail is what makes a project. And our unwavering attention to detail is how we are able to offer a world-class furniture buying experience for our clients.

What aspect of your company are you most proud of and why?:
We are proud of the transformation that our company has made this past year. It’s no surprise that “PacificWRO” might be a name that is unfamiliar to some in our marketplace. It might be unfamiliar because it’s still a new name for us. This past Fall, two furniture dealers – Pacific Furnishings and Workplace Resource of Oregon (WRO) – merged into one company, which is now PacificWRO.

The merger gone remarkably well and our combined team is flourishing. We believe that we are better resourced now more than ever before to help our clients transform their space.

Today we are proud that our combined team has furnished some of the most iconic buildings, companies, campuses, clinics, and spaces across Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.

What value do you see in being an IIDA Oregon Chapter Annual Sponsor?:
We believe a transformed space doesn’t just improve a room; it improves the lives of the people in the room. There’s no doubt in our minds that interior design changes people and improves lives. That’s why we are a proud sponsor of the IIDA Oregon Chapter. Several of our team members are past, present, and future members of IIDA, and we are thrilled to be support the work of such a great organization.

What gets you excited about design?:
As a Herman Miller Certified Dealer, we come from a heritage and legacy of world-renowned designers – people like Charles & Ray Eames, George Nelson, Isamu Noguchi, and countless others.

Today, we find great satisfaction and excitement working with local designers who are pushing the boundaries to create timeless designs, just like Eames, Nelson, and Noguchi. Our local design community is a source of true inspiration every day.
