In 1992 our leadership team, then Herb and Nancy Stoller, established lasting stewardship principles. The people we work with—employees, customers, suppliers—aren’t just business associates; they are our business family and community. This perspective inspires us to create brilliant workspaces for customers and to give back to the communities we serve. In the last decade, we’ve donated time, money, and furnishings to more than 125 non-profit organizations.
Non-profit organizations give so much of themselves in order to achieve their missions, often leaving little or no budget for office furniture. In order to recognize these unsung heroes, we’ve developed Widmer Wish, a unique program that awards a local non-profit organization with office furnishings, courtesy of Widmer Interiors.

Our Partners are Green too!
In order to offer the most earth-friendly products, we partner with industry leading green manufacturers including environmental pioneer Herman Miller. Herman Miller is the only furniture company to be a founding member of the U.S. Green Building Council, and they incorporate green principles into every product they design.
Herman Miller is also a founding member of NextWave Plastics, a consortium working to develop the first global network of ocean-bound plastic supply chains. By integrating this transformed plastic into our products and processes, they're reducing the volume of plastic waste, little by little.
An estimated 234 metric tons of ocean-bound plastic diverted from the ocean annually. (That's the equivalent of 23 million water bottles!)
