Used Office Furniture: Get the Look Without Breaking the Bank
While some office trends are here to stay, such as co-working spaces, other office furniture and layout designs may not stand the test of time. Take a look at several office furniture formats industry leaders predict will be around for a while—and how you can implement them in your office for less.
- Socialization Spaces
Social media isn’t the only social priority of the modern age. In offices, design elements that invite social interaction are becoming increasingly more prevalent. Groupings of couches, side tables, and other casual furniture elements are popping up in various areas of office floor plans—and the more eclectic the better—a uniform look is out.
Get the Look For Less: To create a social space without skyrocketing your office budget, peruse used reception area couches, chairs, and side tables. At COF, we offer all of the above, including club and captains’ chairs, and round drum reception side tables.
- Privacy Pods
While statistics show that open-office concepts continue to rise, the need for privacy remains. In an effort to help employees maintain anonymity when needed, privacy pods (which resemble old telephone booths) are being erected in sections of open office spaces.
Get the Look for Less: While the privacy pods look modern and trendy, some may find them a bit claustrophobic. Consider instead, creating a cubicle cluster. For example, we have helped clients cluster four to six used office cubicles in an open-office concept to allow for client phone calls, accounting, and focus when hot-desk seating becomes too noisy and/or distracting. Cubicles offer more room and space, while still providing much-needed privacy.
- Wellness Wings
With a reported 71% of American workers confessing they feel at least one symptom of stress at their job, more employers are heeding the call of workplace wellness. To help alleviate some of the mental and physical stressors in the office, more and more office managers are creating wellness areas or wings. Here, employees may be able to meditate on a comfy couch, chair, or floor pillow; practice yoga, or play ping pong. There may also be dedicated rooms for nursing mothers or nap stations.
Get the Look for Less: As the premier retailer of used office furniture Norristown PA managers choose, COF has no shortage of comfy chairs and functional office furniture or accessories to accommodate your employees’ wellness needs and goals.
