He always had a really great attitude and made friends with every one he spoke with. Hunter wasnt just an employee here at Sams Office Furniture, he was family. He always took the time to make someone feel important and loved even on his worst days. One of his favorite topics to talk about was sports, it didnt matter it was the NFL, NBA, or the World Cup, he could tell you any team or players stats off the top of his head. You could walk in to work and knowing it was going to be a rough day but he would take some time and give you a little pep talk or say something to boost your self esteem up. His lingo was hard to understand at times but you alway sknew his intentions were good and his laugh and smile was genuine. It didnt matter where you were in the warehouse if he laughed you could always distinguish it from across the room. Sadly late tuesday night Hunter passed away and left behind many memories, friends and friendly faces. Hunter you will be missed and no matter who ends up at your desk you will always be "The CEO". Fly high man and we know you are up there looking down on us and no longer dealing with this Texas summer heat.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 24 Jul 2018 05:00:00 +0000 http://samsofo.com/blog/post/sit-to-stand-desk-the-future-of-the-work-place Sit to Stand Desk, The Future of the Work Place http://samsofo.com/blog/post/sit-to-stand-desk-the-future-of-the-work-place <p>Health is something that should concern everyone. We only have one life on this earth and taking certain steps to maintain a happy and healthy life makes total sense. We learn more and more each day about how our bodies react in certain situations, and we have learned as of late, that sitting for the average 6 hours a day is bad for your health. Lead standing desk researcher James Levine of the Mayo Clinic found in a 2011 study that 43,000 cases of colon cancer and 49,000 cases of breast cancer annually are caused by prolonged sitting. Sitting for long periods of time also increases your obesity risk and shortens life expectancy. Another study showed that Americans can increase their life expectancy 2 years by reducing sitting time from the average 6 hours to just 3 hours per day. Who knew that something as simple as sitting for long amounts of time would lead to all of these problems. These are some real reasons to make the switch to a Sit to Stand Desk.</p><p>When switching from the standard desk to a Sit to Stand Desk there are some things to keep in mind to make the transition easier. Its important to start slow. Do not try to go from 6 hours of sitting each day to no time sitting at all. Start with 20-minute increments and add time as you get more comfortable with the setup. Standing does not sound like much work, but if your body is used to sitting for most of the day, standing too much too fast will put a strain on your body. Use a mat if you have any concern about pain or discomfort from standing and make sure to shift your weight around, not putting all the pressure on one foot. A gel mat will help relieve stress on your knees, hips and ankles. While it is important to stand more often, make sure you are getting your work done. Stand up desks can be a little distracting when you first make the change, so use your sitting time when you need that extra concentration to get the work done. Though the Sit to Stand Desk can be a little distracting at first, you’ll adjust and learn to refocus with time. Another good tip is to keep your set up comfortable. Keep the screen 15-30 inches from your eyes, with eye level even, or slightly below the screen. This will keep your posture correct and help avoid any neck or eye pain. Keep your wrists flat and elbows at a 90-degree angle. If you feel any part of your body straining, you need to make adjustments to find the most comfortable position for you. If you want to make this change we have a range of different Sit to Stand Desks available. We can get Straight and L-Shape Desks with electronic button adjustments, or a pneumatic lever adjustment. If you aren’t wanting to replace your entire desk we also have desk risers that you place on top of your standard desk and use them to switch from seated to standing. One small change in your workplace can make a world of difference for your personal health and wellbeing. Let us help you make that change.</p> Sat, 23 Jun 2018 05:00:00 +0000 http://samsofo.com/blog/post/what-is-our-passion What is our Passion? http://samsofo.com/blog/post/what-is-our-passion <p>What is our passion?

A big thank you to Kevin Meyer with CBS19 for the great job he did in directing it. Also a huge thank you to our friends at Finance of America in Tyler. Rusty and Cody are the best at what they do and friendly as all get out. They sacrificed their time&nbsp;and office space for us and we cannot thank them enough. It will probably take 4 weeks to get the commercial finished but we hope to have a look at it as soon as editing is done for the first part of the commercial.

In his 40 years leading the company, Clyde's dedication to the pursuit of making stylish, beautiful, well-made furniture propelled the company to become one of the nation's premier importers and manufacturers of furniture. In 2000, Clyde passed the torch of leadership to Paul B. Toms Jr, grandson of the company's founder, making Hooker a third-generation company and one of the few furniture firms still led by a member of the founding family.</p><h3><strong>CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS</strong></h3><p>Headquartered in Martinsville, Va. where we maintain a corporate office and several distribution facilities, Hooker Furniture employs around 800 people at our Virginia and North Carolina locations. Our high-fashion custom upholstery by Sam Moore Furniture is manufactured in Bedford, Va. Much of our upscale leather upholstery line is manufactured in Hickory, N.C. by Bradington-Young. Hooker also imports an extensive line of wood bedroom, living room accents, dining room, home office and home entertainment furniture and some leather furniture from factories around the world. These include factories in Asia, Mexico and Central America. The design and engineering of these imported furnishings is all carefully overseen by Hooker or Bradington-Young in compliance with our high quality standards.</p><p><br></p><p><br></p><!--EndFragment--> Tue, 05 Dec 2017 06:00:00 +0000
