“Lori at Global Concepts has been my go-to person for all my office furniture needs for more than 15 years. She has helped with layouts for new offices, re-configured existing spaces as needed to accommodating growth, and even had custom pieces made for us when the need arose. Her and her crew do an amazing job, they are always friendly, efficient, and they get the job done working within our time constraints. I would never look anywhere else for any of my furniture needs.”
Lori Harris, Controller, Bogard Construction, Inc.
“During the last year the Santa Cruz County Probation Department has opened a new Community Resource Center to provide a broad menu of services and supports for individuals returning to the community from jail and prison. The design of the center required a variety of office spaces and solutions, and since participation is voluntary, we worked to make the space comfortable, attractive, and flexible. Issues of security, hygiene, and trauma-informed client flow were priorities.
We were fortunate to work with Lori Buffington, who was recommended by our local Sheriff’s Office. She helped our design team to select furniture that addressed our functional criteria while also being attractive, comfortable, and within our budget. From sit/stand desks for service providers to stacking tables and chairs for the classrooms, to colorful and inviting chairs for the informal client meeting area, Lori helped us establish a consistent look and feel that unites a complex series of spaces into a single, integrated whole.
We appreciated Lori’s knowledge and patience in working through a complex project with our team. We recommend her highly.”
Andrew Davis, Senior Analyst, Santa Cruz County Probation Department

“I love working with Global Concepts because they make everything easy. They’ve been our full service solution for office remodels for years. You can show them your space and they’ll come up with a layout, make furniture recommendations, provide carpet and paint options, and assess electrical and networking needs. Or, if you prefer to get into the details, you can tell them exactly what you’re looking for and they’ll make it happen to your specifications. Their assemblers are friendly, clean and competent. Our employees love their new workstations, and having a newly redesigned and remodeled office is great for staff morale!”
