Office furniture typically does not wear out, it "ugly outs", meaning it just doesn't fit or look good any more. The only piece of office furniture that wears out or breaks is typically seating, which is the only real source of comfort. So, spend more on seating for your employee's since your employee will be effected by how comfortable they are, if they are not comfortable they'll get up and talk with others or suffer from aches and pains resulting in a loss of work. You can buy real nice new chairs for as high as $800-1,000 or buy pre-owned $800 chairs for 25% of the cost, but don't skimp on chairs.
