You can use color to change the size and shape of furniture pieces, as well as whole rooms. You can even use it to change your mood.

In celebration of a day dedicated to hard-working employees across the country, we would like to personally thank all of Andersen employees, past and present, for their inspiring commitment to the communities, their dedication and hard work (in the office, manufacturing plant, or in the field), and the value each brings to our company and our culture. In light of Employee Appreciation Day, we’re recognizing a few employees who were deemed worthy of the spotlight by their fellow coworkers. From exceptional leadership skills and going above and beyond at work, to community involvement and overall morale boosters, we’re proud and honored to have each of them on our team.
