Today's furniture goes far beyond functionality. With a vast amount of office furniture now available it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what's important when looking for the right office furniture for your company. Active discuss 5 things to consider when choosing the right furniture for your workplace…
1) Brand identity
It is all well and good having a piece of office furniture that suits its function, but it must also reflect your brand identity and company culture. Branding can be mirrored through the use of corporate colours, shapes or an overall image. For example, if you are a modern tech company you would opt for vibrant and contemporary furniture, whereas if your company is a very traditional law firm you would choose something more warming and conventional to reflect your company values.
Comfort is a must. Although somewhat obvious, it can be tempting to choose something that is aesthetically pleasing despite its compromise of comfort. With the average office worker allegedly sat for approximately 8 hours a day, it is crucial that seating is comfortable and supports the user ergonomically. Striking a balance between aesthetics and comfort is essential to ensure the wellbeing and productivity of your staff.
