‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’ goes the old adage, but how often can we realistically say that we apply it to our daily lives? We make snap judgements based on appearance all the time, and so getting it right is extremely important. If you’re looking to make your office stand out from the crowd, investing in some funky office furniture can be the way to do it.
Designer office furniture isn’t all about appearance, however. It must be practical and aid your working day as well, rather than hinder it. A working environment should be conducive to work and not provide too many distractions, so don’t go over the top when it comes to funky decoration and accessories. Modern and contemporary furniture is usually one of the best choices for an office because its clean and smooth lines inspire tidiness and a reduced amount of clutter, which is best for keeping an organised mind.
If you’re starting from scratch, the first area to concentrate on is office furniture chairs. The wrong chair can give you back, neck and shoulder problems, which will inevitably make you want to shorten your working day. Choose a chair which is both attractive and ergonomically sound in terms of design. Our Eames inspired chairs are a perfect choice in this respect.
Keep your office clutter free with plenty of storage to keep files and papers organised and not creating piles on desks. Also remember cupboards or cabinets which can be locked for sensitive data which must be kept confidential.
