Tvilum Furniture Line Top Seller at Office Depot®

May 17, 2011

Taylor, Mich. (May 17, 2011) - In early 2011, the Tvilum Prima furniture line was deemed the top-selling furniture line at Office Depot®. The collection was introduced to Office Depot stores in 2010 and is currently available in the top 500 volume-producing Office Depot stores and on OfficeDepot.com.

"We knew Office Depot was our partner of choice in the office superstore arena. We saw a huge opportunity with Prima to bring Office Depot something different than anything else on its floor," said Chad Turben, Tvilum sales manager. "This collection has introduced Office Depot to an entirely new customer base and, most importantly, it's given the retailer more trend relevance in the market."

According to Turben, the Prima line's popularity stems from the flexibility it gives consumers. The collection includes 14 products that combine into versatile office solutions from free-floating L-desk configurations to bookcase and wall storage systems in a variety of sizes. Consumers also can purchase kits that allow them to further customize storage systems with doors, drawers, or a combination of both. Additionally, pieces are built from durable commercial-grade material and feature modern styling with details such as metal legs and hardware, inset panels and a deep espresso finish.

"The entire collection is really designed to give consumers the style, function and quality they want, not to mention a great value," Turben said. "It's been quite rewarding to bring it to Office Depot so successfully."

Tvilum and Office Depot plan to expand the collection to more stores across the nation in 2011 and will soon offer four new finishes for existing products.
