Our rich history began when Lou Miller founded L&M Office Furniture, Inc. in 1963. Lou’s first move was to buy four truckloads of furniture from All Makes Office Equipment Company in Nebraska. This office furniture, plus a healthy amount of used furniture, served as L&M’s first offerings in Tulsa.
The company’s humble beginnings began with two objectives. First, Lou wanted to sell great office furniture at affordable prices. Secondly, a large on-hand inventory was established to eliminate long lead times. In the 1960s, customers often ordered furniture and waited 16 weeks for the furniture to be delivered. Lou realized that by carrying a large amount of inventory, he could provide a timely, quick service to Tulsa businesses.
L&M Office Furniture quickly became Lou’s dream of being the “businesspersons’ department store.”
Through the years, equipment needs have changed. Old advertisements indicate that office furniture had to be easy to clean up should cigarette ash or whisky was to be dropped on it. Today, things are modular, clean, sleek, and often have multiple functions or uses. To accommodate the changing landscape of modern and traditional office furniture, the company has added many valuable services. L&M now offers full-time professional movers and installers, experienced repair technicians, space planning, financial assistance, consultation services, and much, much more.
In the 1980s, L&M opened an Oklahoma City location to greater serve all of the state. Between these two locations, L&M now has more than 40 professionals to provide exemplary customer service and help when furnishing office and other spaces.
