Our track record of delivering for our clients is long and proven, going back to our founder, Abraham Gaslow.

Today the company is still owned and led by the Gaslow family, who are deeply involved in every facet of the business and personally committed to its future success.

Peter Gaslow, Abe’s grandson, is President and CEO. Larry Gaslow, Abe’s son, serves as Empire’s Chairman.



Like most small businesses, our story started with modest beginnings. Empire Office Furniture was founded in New York City by Abraham Gaslow 77 years ago. Our first sale was a desk which we hand-delivered from our office in downtown Manhattan to our financial services client on Wall Street. Over the years, our client list has even included Marilyn Monroe, who purchased a file cabinet in 1959.

Today, Empire is the largest Steelcase dealer nationwide with 400+ manufacturers represented and 500 employees across the US. We are proud to be ranked as one of Crain’s New York Business’ Largest Privately Owned Companies year after year.
