The Story of CFI

CFI, an exclusive Knoll dealer, is defined by our people, our clients and our performance. We believe that inspired workspaces transform businesses by expressing their image, values and culture.

CFI Headquarters




We thrive on integrating design into real life. For us, it’s the details that trigger curiosity and new ideas. We are here as a resource and collaborator, guiding you through each decision in support of making your project reflective of your style, values and functional needs.



Our collaborative team approach enables us to treat projects of any size and scope with equal enthusiasm. We understand the complexities of each project and will see you through every step of the way, from planning and installation, to textile and finishing decisions.



Our people are as diverse as our products. As a minority-owned company, we bring different passions, talents and strengths to draw from for inspiration. Similarly, the versatility of our products are designed to support a variety of dynamic work spaces.

More than 25 years of industry experience.

We’ve been defined by our diverse team of experts, incredible clients and passion for unparalleled service. With the mission of a seamless work environment, we are dedicated to integrating purposeful design into everyday life.

CFI’s headquarters in Philadelphia was formerly a nineteenth-century Swedenborgian church built in 1881. It was designed by architect Theophilus P. Chandler Jr., founder of the University of Pennsylvania’s department of architecture. When the church closed in the mid-1980s, office space was carefully added, while preserving original aspects of the church.

“Do everything with passion and enthusiasm.”

Robert Chevalier, Chairman and Owner

About Knoll

Cooper-Hewitt Design Award

Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt Design Award

In 2011, Knoll won the National Design Award for Corporate and Institutional Achievement from the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. Winners of the prestigious National Design Award are honored for excellence in design and the public impact of their body of work. This win is a testament to their legacy and also supports their forward- looking vision for design.


At Knoll facilities, sustainability is incorporated into everything they do, from careful material selection to the deployment of green technologies. This commitment to the environment is confirmed by a long list of third-party certifications including FSC, Greenguard, Smart and Level.



A 100% parts warranty — Knoll was the first manufacturer to offer a Lifetime Warranty for certain systems products. As long as CFI clients own their Knoll systems, we warranty the products 100% for parts.
