Magnuson Group’s New CET Designer Extension Offers Industry’s Most Complete Line of High-Design Ancillary Furnishings

Magnuson Group recently debuted the Magnuson Group CET Designer Extension. They are proud to join the CET Designer community with a CET Designer Extension featuring the industry’s most complete line of high-design ancillary furnishings and accessory products.

The extension gives users access to the company’s entire product offering of over 25 categories. CET Designer’s intuitive interface allows a visual, immersive experience through configuration and specification. The extension — with a complete and up-to-date selection of finishes, options, and pricing — enables users to specify Magnuson Group products without intimate product knowledge.

“The Magnuson Group CET Designer Extension makes it easier for customers to work with our products alongside the processes and systems they are already using today,” says Colin Quackenbush, Sales and Marketing Manager of the 4th generation, family-owned and operated company.

The tool greatly enhances the experience and accuracy of the product specification process. Equipped with the CET Designer Extension, Magnuson Group customers can make their client spaces move-in ready quickly and easily, with waste receptacles, planters, coat storage, and all of Magnuson Group’s ancillary product solutions.

With new Return-To-Work product introductions like sanitization stations and privacy screens available on the extension, Magnuson Group will continue to add new products and make feature enhancements based on user feedback. To download the extension free of charge, CET Designer users can request access through Configura’s Marketplace.

  • About CET Designer: Based on technology created by Configura, CET Designer is intelligent, highly visual and intuitive space-planning software that simplifies specifying and selling of products in a variety of industries. It’s a complete solution that quickly and accurately handles every step of the sales and order process. In CET Designer, components that represent manufacturers’ products look and behave like actual products. Users drag and drop components into 2D and 3D virtual environments; behind the scenes, the software tracks components, calculates pricing and prevents user errors. Users can create and generate layouts, quotes, photorealistic renderings, movies, installation drawings, reconfigurations and bills of materials – in other words, everything needed to propose on work and place orders. CET Designer is the future of space planning. More information at
