What Style Of Office Furniture Is Right For Me?
When it comes to buying new office furniture, it isn't so much a matter of just walking into a store and saying "I want that one" anymore. Today, there are so many different pieces available that if we all just picked the furniture we liked, our offices would look like a big unorganized mess. Now, you have to ask yourself what kind of image you want to portray for your office and pick furniture that follows those ideas. Use the following guide to help you pick your next style of office furniture.
This is a style of office furniture that is growing in popularity and has an abundance of pieces to choose from. Contemporary furniture is all about wide-open space and legroom. It is quite often described as "working furniture" as it is designed specifically with the employees in mind (incorporating plenty of work space). Because of this, contemporary styles will suit a range of different office spaces.
Really, this style of office furniture is only for those people who run or who are in positions of authority within a company (in short, people who are executives). Generally, when people think of executive office pieces, they think of pieces that are big, heavy and dark, but this doesn't necessarily have to be the case when designing your new office. A desk is considered executive sized when its dimensions are 36ft by 72ft or bigger (so yes, it's big), but it does not have to be a huge oak piece - there is a range of executive office furniture available in lighter tones and that are able to be easily moved.
While many people think this style of furniture is on the way out, there is no reason why traditional office furniture cannot work effectively within your workplace. Traditional pieces connote themes of comfort, order, calm, "oldness" (or even antique) and predictability. This style is great for offices that frequently entertain clients, such as a doctor's or dentist's surgery, as it is guaranteed to make visitors feel relaxed and at home. The colours are generally from the mid tone range, such as beige, and all the furniture blends in together.
Modern furniture is all about clean lines, versatility and a cool feel, and like contemporary pieces, can be made out of a range of materials. It is a preferable style for many offices because it has the ability to cross over into other styles (especially contemporary) with ease.
