Office Furniture Ideas
This blog is designed to save you a little bit of time wondering what on earth to put in your office in regards to furniture. It can be a tricky process with so many options available to you. You need to consider materials, colour schemes, space available, cost and more too. So, let’s get straight into – here are some office furniture ideas we would recommend and why.
We are going to start with a more general idea of multi-functional spaces. You want your office to be a welcoming place where people feel safe and comfortable to do a good day’s work. For this reason, it’s important to make sure the furniture is adhering to this ideation. Adding a large couch or sofa to your office is a great way of doing this.
Employees will use it to chill out as well as work because adding an option that provides comfort as well as the opportunity to work at the same time will enhance productivity. In addition, arranging the furniture you do have into an open-plan space is very 2022 and modern day vibes too. This often helps to increase communication between employees and also make people feel less like there’s a strict hierarchy because everyone works in the same area and can be contacted easier.

An amazing trend that you should consider is using sustainable materials or upcycled furniture in your office. There are some seriously talented furniture makers who make beautiful pieces out of old materials such as wooden palettes or simply reworking an old piece of furniture. These repurposed pieces look as good as new when they’re finished but you’re also making sure something doesn’t go to waste at the same time. If you’ve got a large work force and fully kitted your office out with sustainable furniture then your company would be doing great things for the environment.
Colourful and wild pieces of furniture that traditionally you wouldn’t find in an office would be good too. There are no “rules” or “expectations” from the way an office should look anymore so you can add an artistic expression to it if you like. Add a splash of colour to your sofas, tables, reception area, doors, window sills and anywhere you see appropriate. If you consider a client or employee or customer walking into your office, they’re going to be attracted more or intrigued more by exciting and unique pieces of furniture. It could be that excitement that sets the tone for the rest of the meeting or office visit.
Creating rooms in your office that aren’t necessarily associated with an office is a great way to increase employee engagement and love for the company. For example adding a gym with equipment and seating is a great way to encourage positive mental health and physical health too. Some companies are even known to have basketball courts, football pitches and art rooms too.
Unique pieces of furniture that have a purpose is a good idea for your office too. Desks that have electrical rising and lowering means staff can stand or sit to work which has posture benefits. Comfortable office chairs are also a good thing to help employees sit properly and comfortably at work. Bringing nature inside is also a good thing; plants, flowers and small trees are great.
