Our Story

In 2018, our CEO Veydon Clooney discovered a problem—buying office furniture sucks.

    After furnishing dozens of offices for a commercial real estate startup, Clooney realized the average office furniture company falls into one of two categories: high quality, but expensive and slow, or affordable and fast but lacking in quality and service. There wasn’t a great option for companies that wanted to furnish an inspiring office without taking forever or breaking the bank.

 

    When it comes to high-end office furniture, the issue is middlemen. Buying from furniture dealers means navigating dozens of options, unclear pricing, and markups up to 50%. As your team grows, your space plan and furniture don't adapt your furniture, your problem.

 

    That’s why we founded Nicoloi: to make it easy for teams of all sizes to create an office you love. We sell direct, so our collection costs half as much as premium furniture of comparable quality. And we provide end-to-end service: space planning, delivery, white-glove installation, even the ability to trade in used furniture when you move or grow.
