Bush Furniture's Envoy Line Debuts at Staples® & OfficeMax®

First Unveiled at Las Vegas Market 2010, Envoy Is Now Offered In-Store and Online

JAMESTOWN, NY--(Marketwire - December 2, 2010) - Bush Furniture, a leading global manufacturer of smart furniture solutions for the home and office, announced today that Envoy, the first product in the Office Connect line, is now available both in-store and online at Staples® and OfficeMax®. First introduced at the Las Vegas Market in August 2010, Envoy is designed for today's serious work-at-home and small business professional with the capability to adapt and evolve for a superior workspace and long-term value.

With eight different versatile SKUs in the Envoy collection, each piece can be combined in various configurations to create custom workplaces. Users have the ability to add, subtract and reconfigure elements to design a complete office set-up for less than $700.00 (suggested retail pricing). Currently, Envoy is available in various finishes at both Staples and OfficeMax to fit the consumer's furnishing needs. Beginning this month, Envoy will be displayed in many of the more than 1,200 Staples and 1,000 OfficeMax retail locations throughout the country. The line also is available for purchase on Staples.com and Officemax.com.

"Bush Furniture recognizes that a large number of office superstore customers spend a significant portion of the day at their desks, and therefore, require a solution that is not only high quality and feature-rich, but will help them thrive in their workspace," said Marcie Backer, vice president of Bush's Living Division. "We're excited to offer Envoy to professionals and are confident that our new line will enhance organization and maximize work efficiency for today's multi-taskers."

The Envoy line features a number of features to help integrate and streamline technology, including:

  • Integrated 4-port USB Hub -- Plug-and-play USB devices into one compact hub for easy connectivity.
  • Wire Management Pass-Throughs -- Grommets allow wires to be bundled and passed through furniture without entangling.
  • Wire Management CableQues -- Integrated solution organizes wires and cables, and keeps them neatly out of the way.
  • Recharge Trays -- Convenient stations for organizing and charging electronic devices.

"Today's workforce is always connected and therefore requires a solution that merges furniture and technology, allowing users to collaborate and share information seamlessly," added Backer. "Envoy not only improves the work experience, but also increases productivity by integrating laptops and mobile devices to create the perfect office."

In addition to features that support today's technologies, the Envoy line also provides ample storage and workspace. Work surfaces are durable and functional, made from wear-resistant materials that will hold up strong to tasks and time. Protective edge banding covers desks' edges and shields against bumps and scratches. Additionally, ball-bearing slides ensure drawers open and close smoothly, even with constant use over time. 

Envoy products are suitable for a wide variety of professional settings, including conventional and alternative office environments, as well as home offices. As part of Office Connect, the Envoy collection meets professional ANSI/SOHO standards for performance and safety, and is backed by Bush Furniture's six-year warranty.
