Welcoming Heartwork Furniture to CENTRL


CENTRL Office is excited to welcome our newest dedicated desk member, Katie Griffes, to the Pearl community. Katie believes that a workspace aligned with your needs can enable both pleasure and productivity and that is exactly what her company, Heartwork, sets out to accomplish.

“Our name says it all,” says Griffes. “Heartwork was founded on the principles that everyone should do what they love and that great design can inspire and celebrate those pursuits. With a commitment to producing quality, commercial-grade products, Heartwork designs and delivers modern furniture and accessories that reflect your unique values and culture.”

Karen John, the Founder and CEO of Heartwork, got her start at Design Within Reach in San Fransisco. Karen helped launch start-ups and witnessed first-hand the need for creative workspaces. With that in mind, Heartwork’s products are designed to support innovative companies and the passionate individuals who drive them.

“I love the inspiring and talented people I get to collaborate with every day.” Says Griffes. “I love providing options that allow people to work better and feel happier. And I love our amazing colors!”

Katie is also hoping to help solve design and storage dilemmas for CENTRL Office members. Heartwork is offering discounted rates and has items in stock that ship within one week. This includes credenzas, lateral files, storage cabinets, pedestals, desks, white boards, and monitor stands. All of the products are modular and scalable to adapt to your needs today and tomorrow. Everything is constructed from heavy-duty, commercial-grade, 18/20 gauge steel and made in the USA. She encourages you to mix and match with the exclusive Heartwork colors.

What’s Katie’s favorite piece? She especially loves the two feet deep storage cabinet and the pedestals (pictured below). She is looking forward to connecting with the CENTRL community and continuing to grow Heartwork in Portland and Seattle. Feel free to stop by and say hi to her at the ground floor dedicated desk area. In a few weeks her desk will also be home to a shared library where members and can take and book or leave a book.
