A simple guide to modern office furniture by our in-house furniture designer.
The guide will help you to see how modern office furniture can be right for your space and which design choices could work for you.
Put simply, it’s up to date, well-designed furniture that is designed for function but also to be aesthetically pleasing. The styling should be simple, with clean lines and will often be minimal. White is a popular colour but tends to be used with a mix of brighter colours to create accents or statement design styles.
Quality modern furniture is produced from the latest technically advanced materials to create functional, durable and long-lasting furniture that will stay looking great for years. It’s easier to fit into smaller modern office spaces, works with existing furnishings and allows for easier delivery and on-site assembly by being made as modular pieces or flat packed.
The right modern furniture will look good for years to come in any workplace. Choose from simply but cleverly designed and functional desks, storage units, chairs and sofas in a huge range of colours and finishes for a designer look that works with existing traditional and classic furnishings and never goes out of date.
With most modern office furniture, parts are usually replaceable. This means that vulnerable parts such as desk tops, drawer fronts and cabinet doors can be replaced at a fraction of the cost of buying a new unit or having to replace a whole piece of furniture. And it’s greener to repair than to throw away.
As the old saying goes, ‘Buy the best you can afford and buy once’.
High quality and well made furniture will look great for years to come, even when used daily. If your commercial furniture does not come with a 5 year warranty, it is probably not going to last in a busy office environment.
Before you buy, always take time to consider where the furniture is made. Domestic and commercial furniture designed and produced in the UK, Italy, Sweden and Germany is considered to be some of the best in the world. Reducing delivery miles by choosing furniture produced locally is good for your budget and for the planet.
A huge benefit of choosing modern office furniture is that it can be custom made to order – you can simply select the size, shape and colour that suits you and your working space. No more trying to squeeze bulky furniture into small spaces, or designing the workplace around the furniture placement instead of the people.
