We were elated to celebrate another successful year for Williamson County Schools at their annual Superintendent Banquet.
Every year the board and school principals gather to celebrate the individual successes of each school in the district. This year's theme was "Boots Denim and Bling." A night full of awards, eating great food, and line dancing is just what these hard working county employees deserved!
GBI is proud of our partnership with RSM International!
RSM International forms the 5th largest accountancy professional services network in the world, and we have been happy to meet their furniture needs since early 2015.
GBI has executed furniture installation projects for RSM all over the United States totaling in 12 locations over 6 states. Our goal is to keep their team in comfortable ergonomic workspaces, so they can focus on the audit, tax and consulting needs of their customers.
Who says you need to brace yourself to go to the orthodontist's office?
We loved partnering with Hillsboro Orthodontics to help straighten out their space with some new furniture. We hope the update will keep them smiling!

GBI was proud to partner with Global Furniture Group to be this year's largest sponsor at the Love Helps Golf Tournament!
Love Helps' mission is to help children in Middle Tennessee become good citizens by promoting literacy, student achievement and positive character. Volunteers are able to partner with Metro Nashville Public Schools to influence and educate young people on the importance of personal accountability and strong character.
This is a vision strongly supported by GBI and Global. GBI is a minority owned business that has very strong ties to the local community. Any opportunity to help Middle Tennessee schools cultivate responsible involved adults is an opportunity that GBI strives to be a part of!
The 2018 Love Helps Golf Tournament was held at Vanderbilt Legends Club and hosted a sold out crowd. The event included 18 holes for golfing teams, an auction, food, and prizes. All proceeds directly affect the children of Middle Tennessee.
Thank you to all participants, volunteers, and sponsors for making this event a complete success! GBI is honored to work along side and serve this market with you!
Meet Craig Pyburn, GBI's healthcare furniture extraordinaire and Business Development Manager!
Craig is a Nashville native with 20+ years of experience in the contract furniture industry. He has worked on hundreds of projects ranging in size and scope. At GBI, Craig specializes in assisting healthcare and commercial clients.
We enjoy having Craig on our team, not only for his experience and product knowledge, but also because he always finds a way to incorporate humor and fun in in the mix of sales and business development.
For his employee product highlight, in true Craig fashion, he decided to have his own parking lot party. The Allseating Foster recliner was his chair of choice. Its supportive while maintaining a sleek design so he can comfortably enjoy his umbrella drink in style.
Another gorgeous installation! The industrial feel and airy natural light of the space perfectly compliments the clean lines of this furniture. This combination speaks professionalism and quality from the moment you enter the room.
Conference room usage trends show a move toward smaller conference spaces in the workplace due to the need for more personal collaboration. Have you noticed a need for this in your office?
The perfect solution for our small conference needs was the Nevins Volow media table accompanied by Knoll MultiGeneration chairs.
