On behalf of Arlington Community Federal Credit Union, I want to express my sincere thanks to Washington Workplace for the superior support we received in relocating our operations center to Columbia Pike. The products and value offered by Washington Workplace allowed us to completely furnish our flagship location in a most cost efficient and professional manner, and allowed us to provide staff and credit union members alike with an absolutely first class facility.
Paramount of the support we enjoyed was the personal, responsive assistance we received from Christine Miller-Langemak, Project Manager Katie Grier, and your installation crews. Given the myriad tasks required to relocate from our old site and establish a completely new operation, I never had to worry about Washington Workplace. Delivery, receipt and installation of all office and systems furniture went without a snag, on schedule and expertly. Follow-up support has been equally impressive, with Katie taking a sincere interest in making sure all products are functioning properly and satisfying our needs.
We thank Christine, Katie and your staff for all of your efforts, and look forward to dealing with all of you in the years to come.

Sarah was suggested to me by another designer in my firm. The project I worked on with her was very last minute, with crazy deadlines. She was extra attentive to a difficult client, as well as flexible and met every deadline with a smile.

Over the more than 5 years that we have been working with Karen Taylor of Washington Workplace, she has consistently helped us improve the work environment for our staff and the image we present to visitors. We value her suggestions and advice which consistently yield furniture selections that look good, feel good, and match our corporate identity. With Karen's design expertise and recommendations, we discovered that we did not have to have a Fortune 500 budget to have a coordinated office that reflects well on us and is well suited to our needs. As an added bonus, her communication skills and sense of fun make her a delight to work with. Karen also has been a great resource -- passing on several solid referrals for other services needed as well as unexpected tips that we have benefited from. We highly recommend Karen to any organization seeking to develop or enhance their physical environment. Thank you very much Karen!

It's been a number of years since we started working together, and I just wanted to give you and your staff at Washington Workplace a HUGE thanks for all of the excellent work (and fabulous design services) that you've provided. When The BOSS Group started its growth strategy many years ago, I was looking for a furniture/facilities partner that could grow with us in all of our geographic markets. I didn't want to maintain multiple vendor relationships in different geographic markets, and with that in mind, I interviewed a number of commercial office furniture providers; many of them much larger than Washington Workplace. But after meeting with you and discussing my business challenges, I decided to give Washington Workplace a chance. I haven't regretted it since.
Your personal commitment to excellence, your understanding of the products you sell, your ability to focus on the "minutiae" of building an office while still keeping an eye on the macro vision, and your engaging personality (I consider you a friend now!) all combined to give me exactly what I was seeking many years ago...peace of mind that I had an expert in office furniture/design as my partner, which freed me to concentrate on growing my business. Once again...THANKS.
Rossi Bonugli, Chief Operations Officer, The BOSS Group
Working with Sarah is so easy. She anticipates needs and is quick with alternative solutions. She takes on my project with enthusiasm and focused dedication, as if it were her only project. I wish I had more work for her to do for me!

Hogan & Hartson has worked with Karen Taylor, at Washington Workplace, for many years now. She makes the process for our Partners purchasing office furniture seamless and enjoyable. Karen is always available when we need her assistance, offers a great selection, and is responsive and professional. Karen has become part of the team here and we rely on her expertise.

If I could choose every "top attribute" to describe Sarah, I would; she has been one of the best vendors I've ever worked with! My company purchased a new headquarters building and needed new cubicles and furniture throughout, but we had very little experience in the world of office furniture. Sarah walked us through the entire process with expert knowledge, unsurpassed attention to detail, faster-than-light responsiveness, and the patience of a saint. And she has a fabulous personality that made the whole process enjoyable! I would gladly recommend her for any project you have in mind, big or small - she won't disappoint, and you won't want to work with anyone else ever again!

Sarah did a great job working with my firm when we were constructing our new office. She listened to everything we wanted and envisioned for our space and made recommendations for us to choose from. She was a great person to work with. The whole concept of moving into a new office and almost completely furnishing it was new to us. She stepped right in and stayed with us from start to finish. I would definitely recommend Sarah as a furniture consultant. When you choose Sarah, you not only get a great business person, but you also get a friend.

If you are looking for a furniture consultant, as well as, needing interior decorating guidance, I highly recommend Sarah Gabriel, Washington Workplace. We are a nonprofit association and have a very high profile office. Our office appearance is extremely important to both our members, customers and members of Congress. We have always been extremely happy with Sarah Gabriel's recommendations on furniture and design consultation. They work within our budget, timely delivery of products and have enhanced the appearance of our office.
Mary Lou Fine, Director, American Hospital Association
It truly is a pleasure working with the Washington Workplace team. They are a dedicated group of people who offer a balance of good work ethics and personal touch! I love how we are friends as well as co-workers. Many nights while watching "Dancing With The Stars", Christine and I will be emailing back and forth NOT talking about work but who we think will be eliminated. The next morning, we are back at work solving the world's furniture needs. I love working with the WW team. You should be proud of what you have built.

Sarah came to me through a referral from another colleague in the contract furniture industry. At the time I was desperate to find a consultant who would provide a "look-a-like" suite of furniture for our partially furnished offices. Our current manufacturer had become so expensive, the lead times were ridiculous and the manufacturer's rep was performing very poorly. We needed to maintain our "standard look" and cut costs, but not quality, all at the same time. In flies Sarah Gabriel; with her superhero contract furniture powers and saves the day .....I have benefited from her "powers" on many occasions! Sarah's attention to detail, superb follow up skills and expert knowledge of her many product lines was a godsend to us. Sarah has made the contract furniture portion of my life as a Regional Facilities Director effortless. I was able to cut costs and maintain our company's look.... all the while, posing as the "real" superhero to my bosses!! Oh, and did I mention, Sarah is a delight to deal with? She is friendly and creative, very connected in the industry and has a great sense of humor. I highly recommend Sarah for anything you've got!!!
