Refurbished furniture can save you money

Our refurbishedpre-owned "as is" and used furniture can be thought of as "recycled" office furniture. Instead of old furniture being discarded in land fills, and excess energy being used to create new furniture from ever more limited natural resources, Prose offers an alternative that is not only affordable, but just makes sense in the world in which we live today.
Normally the type of available furniture includes tables, office chairs, conference rooms and cubicles in various conditions. We specialize in buying factory discontinued furniture, scratch and dent, factory showroom close outs and more.
"Recycled" does not mean old or in disrepair; it simply may mean that the furniture, such as an office chair or a cubicle, has been "gently used," but is still very affordable and usable, and will provide years of service.
For more information visit our website and ask for Lucas tell him Joe sent you!

Used furniture by PROSE

Prose offers a variety of used furniture such as desks, chairs, and cubicles purchased from a variety of sources. Much of the inventory consists of brand name furniture such as Steelcase 9000, L and U shaped desks, reception desks, executive chairs, office chairs, reception chairs and more. Prose also offers conference tables and chairs in a variety of sizes to fit most office needs.
Most of our office furniture is slightly used with blemishes that are hardly noticeable. These furniture items sold originally, in some cases, for hundreds up to thousands of dollars, but Prose is discounting them for immediate sale in an "as is" condition. All used furniture is inspected for safety and usability and is then priced appropriately to sell. Our used workstations are mostly Steelcase, and are top of the line products such as Steelcase 9000 which comes in multiple sizes, widths and lengths.
Prose has always stood for quality products, and when you purchase a used piece of office furniture from us you can be assured of quality items.  Contact us at (913) 441-4499 OR

Electrostatic painting

Do you know what electro static painting is? Prose uses this application when it works on updating or refurbishing furniture.  Here is a bit about what this is:

Electrostatic coating is a manufacturing process that employs charged particles to more efficiently paint a workpiece. Paint, in the form of either powdered particles or atomized liquid, is initially projected towards a conductive workpiece using normal spraying methods, and is then accelerated toward the work piece by a powerful electrostatic charge.[1]
An addition to the electrostatic coating (or e-coating) process is dipping electrically conductive parts into a tank of paint that is then electrostatically charged. The ionic bond of the paint to the metal creates the paint coating, in which its thickness is directly proportional to the length of time the parts are left in the tank and the time the charge remains active. Once the parts are removed from the paint tank, they are rinsed off to remove any residual paint that is not ionically bonded, leaving a thin film of electrostatically bonded paint on the surface of the part.

Process characteristics

  • Uses a high voltage electrostatic charge which is applied to both the workpiece and the sprayer mechanism
  • Uses 95% of sprayed paint due to reduced over-spray and better wrap-around
  • Paint materials can be either powdered or liquid
  • Process can be either automatic or manual
  • Workpieces must be conductive
  • Workpieces are usually baked after coated
  • The baked on paint adheres extremely well and is difficult to remove without aggressive means of removal.
Prose uses these techniques and more to produce the best quality look and feel. Call Lucas at (913) 441-4499for more details.

Choosing Office Chairs

Choosing Office Chairs

Your back requires support that's right for you. An adjustable lumbar support helps maintain the natural curve of your spine, which allows blood flow to the discs in your spine. Find chairs that work with the body, maintaining the alignment of your spine for a healthier posture and improved lower back comfort.

The chair should allow you to sit comfortably with your feet flat on the floor, with your knees at a 90 degree angle.

Your shoulders should rest at a comfortable position when you are working. This is important if you are typing for a large portion of your day. They should be adjustable for different users and activities.

The backrest should support the natural curve of your spine, providing support in the lower back. It should be high enough to support your shoulders and neck, while allowing for movement for reaching when you are sitting.

The seat should provide comfortable support to your hips and behind, and should measure from your back to 2-4 inches from the back of your knees.
