Quick Ship

The most options & quality seating at quick ship in the contract furniture industry.

Quick Ship

At Via Seating, we don’t just have a quick ship program—we’re a quick ship company. Over 95% of our offerings are quick ship. Compare Via Seating lead times with other quick-ship programs and you’ll find we offer the greatest selection of quality seating with the broadest range of options. And we have always been that way. When we opened our doors in 1987, we introduced a new concept to the contract furniture industry. We launched our 48-hour manufacturing time and we did it on every chair, every fabric & every leather.
