The former OfficeMax building on Broadway Ave. near Linden St. is about to get new life.

Scandinavian Designs currently has a small preview store open in the building – but is working to remodel the rest of the building for a full furniture store in the 31,000 square foot space. Crews will update both the inside and outside of the building, according to filings with the City of Boise.

OfficeMax closed the store after its merger with Office Depot, and pointed customers to a store on Broad St. in Downtown Boise.

Scandinavian Designs is part of a chain with locations across the Western United States. It features a broad range of furniture and home decor with a Scandinavian influence. The company also operates the Dania Furniture stores found in Oregon and Washington.

The Boise preview center is open Wednesday through Sunday – and the full store is set to open this fall.
