DAVIS' sweet spot is truly understanding the vision of the client and design team — and then translating that into a reality. In this case, we sat down with Allsteel and Hickok Cole and immediately grasped exactly what they envisioned. The results speak for themselves.

Allsteel, an innovative office furniture company that designs cutting-edge commercial furnishings, and DAVIS, speak the same language and transform spaces. This time, it was Allsteel that was ready to renovate its DC showroom — and they trusted us to make that vision a reality.
Purposeful in the Details
It was time for an Allsteel showroom that matched the modernity and sleekness of their furniture. We got to work — creating custom features that would become the highlight of the expanded gallery floor space. Wowing clients when entering the space was key.
From the moment we were brought on board, we partnered with the design team to ensure the atypical finishes were executed perfectly. From the perforated black steel atrium wall with custom-branded logos and backlighting, to the polished epoxy concrete floors and a glass storefront entryway, these signature finishes give the space a unique vibe. Other accents include a custom credenza cabinet and custom-built steel pedestals filled with office copy paper as a creative way of displaying Allsteel’s expansive office chair selections.
Allsteel had relocated to another space during the construction so timing was critical. The project was delivered on time and on budget, within an accelerated three-month time period. Allsteel's team, from their Iowa headquarters all the way to DC, were thrilled with the results and we're proud to have delivered a space that represents their creativity.
