Carefully chosen office furnishings not only create an efficient workspace, they contribute to the overall atmosphere of the business for both employees and clientele alike.
Dave Metrinko of DCL Office Furniture Solutions, Inc., knows that well-planned office environments don’t come together by chance. He relies on more than 15 years of experience in the office furniture industry to help clients choose furnishings that are as beautiful as they are efficient.
Dave, along with his wife Cosie launched the business in June of 2006. Dave spent years before that fine-tuning his expertise in commercial furniture at another organization. Cosie’s innate talent of selecting colors, fabrics and textures to create cohesive and inviting spaces completed the team.
As a result, DCL Office Furniture Solutions provides free interior decorating services for every client from choosing paint and fabric colors, floor and wall coverings, window treatments and even art and accessories to compliment the space.
If desks fall apart and inefficiency promotes clutter; however, the most beautiful office space will not stay attractive for long. DCL carries a variety of high-quality products from 75 manufacturers including Paoli, HON Company, Inline Systems and Patriot Seating. Not only are these well-made products, they carry warrantees and service agreements to ensure durability. “We can fill anyone’s budget from moderate range to luxurious tastes,” assures Dave. “We listen to our clients, not just the size space they are working with but their budget as well.”
For new business owners who want to save money by purchasing at office supply wholesalers, Dave suggests calling him first. “If you want to spend $750 to set up your home office, let me show you what I can get for you. You are going to get a much better value and furniture that is going to last longer as well as free space planning to make sure it’s going to fit in the office.”
Additionally, many of the furnishings can be expanded upon to fit a client’s changing needs. Once furnishings are chosen, Dave takes precise measurements of the space and generates a three-dimensional schematic including furniture placement so clients can visualize how the space will look in advance. If the client is building a new space, Dave will work from blueprints, advising space design for maximum efficiency.
Two of DCL’s recent clients are Hospice of Queen Anne’s and Choptank Electric. DCL Office Solutions not only covers Maryland’s Eastern Shore but also Virginia and D.C. as well as clients from New England to California as several clients who moved their businesses wanted to stick with DCL.
“We pride ourselves on our service,” says Dave. “If something needs to be repaired or replaced, we take care of it.” So far, Dave says they have not had a dissatisfied client yet and continue to grow the business on referrals.
DCL Office Furniture Solutions carries a variety of products in stock so clients can get needed items such as chairs or filing cabinets quickly, but the majority of the furnishings are custom made with finishes and edge details chose by the client so it arrives exactly to specification. DCL also orchestrates the installation of any window treatments, wall coverings and flooring as well as furniture placement.
A family-owned business, D and C of DCL stand for Dave and Cosie’s first initials. L represents their son, Luke. Even the dog in their logo is inspired by the Harley, the family’s Labrador.
