3 Office Design Trends Expected to Prevail in 2015

Modern offices are drastically different from the ones we had a few generations ago. Gone are humdrum cubicles, drab wall colors, and strictly utilitarian work environments. Now you can see a lot of offices that tickle the fancies of corporate types and keep them motivated to work.

Here are some the office design trends that are expected to prevail or evolve in 2015 and in the years to come:

Used Office Furniture in Denver: Trusty Tools to Tweak a “Sad” Office

To prevent those tendencies, you can redesign or refurnish your workspace with used office furniture in Denver. If your office is dominantly white or looks too ho-hum and sterile, you can add boldly colored statement pieces to give it some life. If you want to execute an open space layout that works, find well-designed chairs, desks, and other items that fit your work area, allow the efficiency of workers, and even improve ergonomics.

3 Challenges in Designing a Workspace

Are you taking on an office design or redesign project? If yes, you should anticipate three typical challenges encountered in designing a workspace:

Designing for the Comfort of All
Every employee has individual preferences and standards, which makes it difficult to pick an office design that your staff will be comfortable with. Looking for office furniture that can accommodate different body types and postures may be the most important consideration in this goal. Of course, you can’t please everyone, but you can ensure the general comfort of the majority.

Designing for Privacy or Collaboration
You have to consider the nature of your business processes to determine if you need to focus on the privacy of your employees or their ability to collaborate. The former involves enclosures or dividers, tall or cozy furniture, and a strategic design to give everyone their designated space. The latter, on the other hand, may involve easily moveable chairs, an open workspace layout, and bigger tables that your staff can share.

Designing for Inevitable Change

You can’t predict technology updates. A compact workstation may eventually need extra space for future gadgets or computer extensions that employees will need. Conversely, an open workspace today may not work 3 or 5 years from now, which may require you to tweak your office design or replace your furnishings. Prepare for these changes with flexible furniture.

Dealer of Office Furniture in Fort Collins Helps Design Gateway Center

As part of this momentous project, Fort Collins office furniture provider Pear Workplace Solutions helped design the interiors of the Gateway Center. Fixture choices were made with the building’s architecture in mind, and neutral colors with lots of rich and brown leathers dominate the final scheme. Each floor also has flashes of Game Day Gold on every floor, which reflect UW’s school colors. All of these aspects make the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center a point of pride for the University of Wyoming and its past, present, and future constituents.

2014 Furniture Trends Set to Stay Big in 2015

The past year was an awesome time for conference room design projects. Super cool design trends came plenty, effectively helping businesses raise the level of their office meeting spaces to new heights. Here are some of the most captivating conference room office furniture trends of 2014 that are sure to remain popular this year and beyond.

Elliptical Tables

Elliptical tables were a hot commodity in the 2014 office furniture market. Apparently, a lot of businesses felt that rectangular, oblong, and round table shapes were far too overused. One major benefit of this design, apart from the sleekness and elegance, is that it offers space-saving advantages that allow businesses to maximize conference room square footage.

Which is Better, New or Used Office Furniture?

When it’s time to update your office, chances are that you’ll also have to decide between buying new or used office furniture. Both of these options have their merits, and with the right products, they can both serve you well in the long run. Choosing one over the other ultimately depends on your personal preferences and circumstances.
If your business has a limited budget for additional chairs and desks, you may be better off buying used office furniture instead. Many used furniture is sold in bulk and at bargain prices, and the sizable difference in costs can help you stay within your budget. Buying used furniture also helps you carry out your social responsibility of protecting the environment, since you’re essentially practicing recycling.

Denver Office Furniture Choices: Open Office Layouts Reconsidered

To those unfamiliar with the concept, an open office layout consists of multiple, non-territorial working areas where employees are free to roam and communicate with each other. The arrangement of the office furniture reflects this idea by maximizing the use of space without sacrificing comfort. Given the above findings, however, businesses may want to come up with better Denver office furniture and workspace layouts with the help of a company like Pear Workplace Solutions. It all starts with buying the most ergonomic office furniture and equipment. Simply put, office chairs, desks, shelves, and the like must be easy to work with and comfortable to use. That said, ergonomics should not come at the expense of quality as flimsy office furniture not only incur greater maintenance and upkeep costs but also pose hazards. A general rule of thumb businesses should follow is that any furniture item designed for home use should never be installed in the workplace.

Office Layout and Productivity

It has often been said that the way a company’s office is laid out directly affects employee performance, and the results of various studies and surveys, some of which are discussed below, would bear this out.
Stats and Facts
Numerous studies have found out that a comfortable, well-ventilated and adequately lit office amps up employee productivity and job satisfaction by 16 and 24 percent, respectively, significantly reducing absenteeism among workers. It’s not hard to see why—an engaging, lively workplace is something almost everyone would look forward to.

Fort Collins Office Furniture Installers: Office Relocation Made Easy

The expansion comes at an opportune time as Front Range Village only has about 78,000 square feet of leased office space at the moment. Start-ups and existing businesses planning to relocate to the center would definitely need the services of top Fort Collins office furniture dealers like Pear Workplace Solutions that not only sell top-of-the-line office equipment but also provide installation, configuration, warehousing, and other complimentary services. These services can help businesses adjust to their news home and hit the ground running, so to speak. It is also a practical choice to work with furniture installers who are trained in the proper handling and lifting of heavy office furniture such as desks, lounge furniture, filing cabinets, etc.

Oil Prices May Affect Your Colorado Springs Office Furniture Choices

Benching systems may pick up in the next few years as more offices look toward having a more modular setup. Long and big tables can be shared by small teams and customized to divide workspaces if necessary. Colorado Springs office furniture dealers such as Pear Workplace Solutions have various benching systems for sale. One long table can be allotted to, say, 10 people rather than giving them a desk each. The savings can be allocated toward more important expenses such as utilities and investments, thereby helping keep the business afloat. Such a small yet efficient office space also leaves a smaller carbon footprint, an important asset to have in an environmentally-conscious world.

Quality Denver Office Furniture: Building an Ergonomic Workstation

To facilitate ergonomic orientation, Denver office furniture dealers such as Pear Workplace Solutions offer monitor arms. Haworth's line of monitor arms, in particular, can support up to 24 lbs. of weight, which is ideal for flat monitors that normally weigh around half as much. At this capacity, monitor arms can also be set up to support laptops, which can weigh as light as 3 lbs. The arms can be retracted or extended at ranges between 4.60 and 21.75 inches. Multiple arms can be installed on a single support column to hold multiple monitors, which is ideal for multitasking activities. The holders are configured to VESA standards, which dictate that the hole patterns must be arranged in a square.

Oil Prices May Affect Office Furniture Choices

The increasing popularity of shale as an alternative to oil has caused an unprecedented plummet in oil prices. You know what happens when oil prices drop; everything else follows. However, it seems like oil prices always have the tendency to go back up and in the years to come, you can expect it to poke a hole in your pocket again.

When oil prices rise, people will likely search for ways to avoid buying it, such as transitioning to eco-friendly measures in terms of office design. Offices may invest in newer hardware and software systems to help them achieve their goal of going paperless. Accommodating more equipment, however, will require a major redesign of the modern office.

Go Environment-friendly with your Office Furniture

Going green isn’t limited to just meeting energy ratings and best practices. You can also go green by creating a conducive work environment. This is the recommendation from various authorities on building design, alluding to the increase in demand for a better workplace with workers’ comfort in mind. Design, however, is just one aspect of better building strategies to enhance workplace efficiency and workers’ satisfaction.

While the rating system of the Leadership for Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) sets the standard for greener buildings, something basic to any worker’s heart needs just as much attention. Workplace comfort and turnover rate have an indirect—and linear relationship. Discomfort leads to pain, which, in turn, leads to loss of focus and low productivity—and in the end, concludes in job termination or resignation.

Setting Up A Startup’s Office

Startup companies are a dime a dozen across the country. You may even name some companies that were only startups last year, but have now reaped a lot success with their products or services. If you’re opening a startup firm and secured some space as a base of operations, you will need to invest in some quality new or used office furniture.
Buying a good set of tables depends on the startup’s initial pool. You must evaluate if you require a large table for communal activities or smaller desks for more personal work. In some cases, the business owner may have the only individual table and include options to buy extra tables in the future.

Arrange Your Office Furniture to Your Benefit

Open floor plans don’t always make for fun offices. Yet with the right execution and appropriate office furniture, an open floor plan can spice things up in your workplace and even boost employee satisfaction and productivity. Here are some of the advantages of this type of floor plan:

Lower cost of doing business

As the term suggests, an open office floor plan literally puts everyone in one room, with no dividers or walls to separate them. Given that open floor plans do not require partitions, a company can save a lot in terms of construction, materials, and labor. Instead of maintaining several individual spaces, the company only needs to manage one large area, which translates into lower utility bills.

The Health Benefits of Standing Desks

Standing desks are a new but welcome addition to any office environment as they offer certain health benefits. First, they can help enhance your metabolism. Second, they help you flex your muscles more regularly. Third, they can help with blood circulation.

Benefits to the Mind

Aside from these health benefits, though, many offices equipped with standing desks have seen significant improvements in terms of employee productivity and creativity. Standing desks, among other things, make it easier for employees to concentrate on their work because their focus is not diverted toward the poor ergonomics of their office chairs that often results in backaches and discomfort.

Picking Colorado Springs Office Furniture and Designs to Suit Gen Y

Are you planning to redesign your office? Have you thought of what kinds of Colorado Springs office furniture you’re going to incorporate in the design? If you don’t have any concrete ideas yet, you might want to evaluate the profiles of your employees to see what type of office space suits their preferences. Keeping Millennials in Mind Today’s offices are mostly filled with young professionals who belong to the so-called Generation Y, or millennials. In an article for ArchDaily, Michael O'Neill, senior research strategist for Haworth, shares his thoughts on designing for this group.

Denver Office Furniture Goes Modular and Mobile with Benching Systems

The open workplace gives managers more for less. They can configure the office space anyway they want simply by moving Denver office furniture with less effort. Benching is an example of a versatile office system, putting workers on a common table, permitting a free exchange of ideas. They're also lightweight, allowing easy moving when space needs to be consolidated. However, experts say benching is only ideal for dynamic work environments such as studios and consultant firms. If there's a need to communicate or move information seamlessly, the benching system allows unimpeded access. Benching may not work if the nature of an office requires some information to be kept secret.

Partner Company of Denver Used Office Furniture Dealer Releases Report

Denver, Colorado (September 9, 2014) – Prominent manufacturer Haworth, a partner company of Denver used office furniture provider Pear Workplace Solutions, recently released their 9th Sustainability Report that features their plan to get rid of 56 chemicals that can affect the health of customers and the environment from their production lines by the end of 2015. Haworth’s report outlines the chemical recall from their global production. Senior sustainability engineer Michael Werner said that the company reviewed 2,000 concerned chemicals, and the aforementioned 56 were tagged for removal because they have been identified as harmful to end-users by customers, governments, and NGOs. This is part of their initiative to provide healthier working environments for hardworking employees worldwide.

Tips on Buying the Right Office Furniture

An office needs the right furniture to brighten it up. Here are a few tips on selecting the right pieces to complete your office interiors.

Consider your space measurements

Before buying anything, make sure that it fits the room where it will be installed. For instance, buying a conference table that turns out too big for its intended space could be just as useless as having no table at all. Get furniture pieces in the right size so you don’t end up with a crammed office.

The Workplace through the Generations

The workplace has changed through the years. Rows of individual desks gave way to shared desks as office space shrank to the size of a condo unit. In just four generations, people have adapted to the changes in their respective eras, thus, changing the doctrine of workplace ergonomics.

Workplace design first opened up for the traditionalists or veterans, workers who have lived through World War II, on or off the battlefield. Compared with the rest, these people were very disciplined and were respected. They often wore formal attire and seriously valued their worth as productive members of society.

Many leading companies like Adobe, Facebook, and Google are known for their ergonomic office spaces, attractive facades, functional and work-conducive rooms, and aesthetically pleasing concepts and designs.

But how can companies address this perennial workplace problem?

Why You Should Consider Used Office Furniture

When designing a new office, the usual mindset is to get new additions, especially when it comes to office furniture. But before you go check out brand-new items, you might want to consider getting used furniture for your workspace instead. Here are some reasons why:

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Planning Office Aesthetics

Some people are so lucky that all they do is sit down and it seems that all their creative ideas are a veritable goldmine. For most people, however, even a basic thing as arranging or decorating an office cubicle can be a gargantuan undertaking. Nevertheless, with a little bit of planning, consultation, and the right materials at hand, you can have an office space that’s both stylish and functional.

Start with the big furniture

Whether you’ve ordered a pre-made desk or are having one customized, you should have a basic idea of where you want your new furniture pieces to go. Install the largest pieces first, so when you have your desk, choose bookcases and chairs next. Once the big stuff are in, embellishments like lamps and paintings should be a snap.

Focus on ergonomics

Since the office is where you get a lot of things done, ergonomics is of utmost concern, not only for comfort, but also for your overall health. Focus on furniture and appliances that are proven to alleviate pain and reduce symptoms of common condition like back pain, poor back flow, and joint problems. Don’t put form over function.

Tie everything up

With your office furniture arranged, it’s now time to add the finishing touches. Remember office necessities like storage areas, organizers, file carts, etc. Don’t be afraid to ask an interior designer for help in decorating your space; just make sure the final look still has your personal touch. It’s your space, after all.

How to Create a More Productive Workspace

Ergonomics play a vital role in the workplace, and often, workplaces that are not ergonomic-friendly reduce employee motivation; in these workplaces, the rules of ergonomics—or the principles of comfort through design—are often overlooked, which, expectedly, cause all sorts of physical ailments to employees, such as back pain. Here’s a checklist to ensure that your office becomes a workplace that will empower your employees and help drive their productivity:
Good furniture
What makes good furniture? Good furniture supports a user’s proper posture as a means to avoid upper limb disorders—pain felt in the neck, shoulders, arms, wrists, hands and fingers. They become repetitive strain injuries because of monotonous work and improper posture. Always consider giving your workers well-designed ergonomic desk chairs in which they can sit all day long comfortably. Curvy and rounded furniture are often found to be cozy enough to project positive feelings to the user, enough to drive his productivity.
Workspace design
Workspaces should give employees room to move about freely. Within their workspaces, they should be able to move both their arms and legs, as well as change positions. Avoiding cramped spaces helps decrease the risk of muscle strains.
Equipment conveniently placed
Work tools should also be placed within reach of the user at his workplace. Having the shelves too high or power cables that are too low to reach will, over time, strain the employee.
The best lighting is adjustable. Giving employees some options to adjust the direction of their lighting fixture, as well as the ability to adjust their visual surroundings by providing dividers or blinds will help them avoid straining their eyes as they work with the monitor. Playing with colors such as blue and green, and placing them strategically in the workplace, are found to make employees more innovative, while red motivates employees doing more detail-oriented tasks.

Denver Office Furniture Company Sponsors 2014 Crystal Awards

The design profession is dominated by one desire: the achievement of design perfection. This is why, each year, countless design industry organizations strive to award the best designers in the field and stimulate the drive to always put innovativeness and creativity on the forefront of the profession. As a provider of high quality office furniture to Denver businesses, Pear Workplace Solutions understands the importance of recognizing the best in the interior design industry.

Mistakes to Avoid when Buying Office Furniture

The quality of office furniture can make or break employee productivity, according to numerous studies. As such, buying office furniture requires some thought and a keen eye for ergonomic values. When buying office furniture for your employees, here are some tips to keep in mind—and common mistakes to avoid:
Choosing looks over comfort – What’s a pretty chair or table if a person can’t work fully in it? When choosing furniture for the office, employers must always put the comfort of their employees, clients, and guests up front. Ergonomics, or the knowledge of comfort, is vital in choosing furniture that can be truly functional and useful.
Buying without a plan – Impulse buying and furniture purchases don’t go together, and they never will. Employers need to weigh the viability of choosing furniture that fits their budget while considering quality and long-term service. Aside from functionality, buying based on the office’s existing interior design should also be factored in. Nobody would really want an ill-fitting, Victorian-styled chair on a modern-looking metal desk.
Price over quality – As with other purchases, the cheapest is not often the smartest choice. For instance, choosing the cheaper one from a choice of two identical chairs may not be a better buy where the more expensive one may cost a bit more because it will last longer and have more in it in terms of ergonomics value than the less-expensive chair. Over the long term, the more costly one would have made itself well worth the purchase.

Denver Office Furniture Designers Deal with Workers’ Ache, Discomfort

The transition from standing to sitting position exerts immense stress to the lower back as it tries to stabilize the torso. If the weight shifts forward of the torso due to poor sitting posture, the back muscles have to exert more force. This, in turn, compresses the lumbar spine, resulting in pain and discomfort popularly known as low back pain (LBP). LBP can seriously hamper production and quality of work; it forces key personnel to take sick leaves due to their aching backs. Buy Denver office furniture from dealers like Pear Workplace Solutions to find the ideal furniture for everyone because you believe that comfortable and cozier seats for your workers lead to productivity.

Denver Office Furniture Can Be Green, Sustainable, and Comfortable

While the rating system of the Leadership for Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) sets the standard for greener buildings, something basic to any workers’ heart needs just as much attention. What good is a LEED-compliant office if the chairs could use better designs for back comfort? Workplace comfort and turnover rate have an indirect—and linear relationship. Discomfort leads to pain, which, in turn, leads to loss of focus and low productivity—and in the end, concludes in job termination or resignation. Design and building experts, in fact, agree on this relationship. Angela Loder, adjunct professor at the University of Denver, says that quality of materials form one of three key components in green building research. This not only refers to office furnishings emitting volatile organic compounds (VOCs), but also those that break after a few twists and turns.

Set up Shop: Tips on Buying and Arranging Office Furniture in Denver

Of course, you’ll also need to create a space for your employees in which to take a break, get refreshments or coffee to help boost their productivity. Provide a break room or mess hall complete with a refrigerator, a microwave oven, coffee pots, a few tables and sufficient seating. Do make sure that you only put enough tables to keep the space from looking needlessly crammed. Work life in the Mile High City can be more efficient and rewarding when the workplace is designed and furnished for people to work in the most optimal conditions. Buy reliable office furniture from Denver, Colorado distributors like Pear Workplace Solutions.

Factors to Consider in Buying Office Furniture in Denver Online Stores

The amount that you will be paying for your office furniture of choice doesn’t end with the price tag – you should also know its average cost of ownership, that is, money, time, and effort spent on cleaning, troubleshooting, repairing, and maintaining your furniture, in general. Choose quality materials that won’t end up becoming useless white elephants in the room—more a burden than help. It also pays to buy things for your office in Colorado’s largest city from reputable Denver office furniture online stores like Pear Workplace Solutions. This way, you can be assured of high-quality and long-lasting furniture and furnishings, be they new or used.

Open Offices versus Cubicles

When it comes to setting up your office, there’s a lot more to think about than just your choice of used office furniture. You should also keep in mind what layout you want to utilize. More specifically, you’ll have to choose between having an open office versus sticking to the more traditional cubicle layout.
Cost: Open Office
Open offices can help you save up so much more of your resources than cubicles, for obvious reasons. Not only are those large dividers a cost you can do away with, but their absence could actually mean you can maximize space within your office. This benefits startup companies that don’t exactly have a lot to spend on a large office just yet.
Phone Calls: Cubicles
If most of your employees are working with different phone lines simultaneously, open office settings might not be the smartest idea. Noise can easily distract your workers, and it might even cause miscommunication somewhere along the way.
Socialization: Open Office
For the most part, socialization in open offices are more work-oriented, since everybody has that feeling of being constantly monitored, thus making it an efficient setup to encourage productivity. Cubicles, on the other hand, tend to pave the way for gossip and non-work related talk.

Why You Should Update Your Office Furniture

Perhaps it’s due to the ubiquity of office furniture in the corporate environment, but most people don’t give the equipment they use on a daily basis too much thought—unless, of course, something breaks. We get so used to the constancy of our furniture, that a sudden change—even if it’s something as simple as someone getting a new chair—can instantly capture our attention.

Monday, July 21, 2014

Should You Buy Used Office Furniture?

Every now and then, businesses are faced with the difficult decision of whether to buy something new or resort to a used alternative. Since office furniture is often built to be sturdy and take quite a lot of abuse from its users, drawing a line on when to buy new or stick to used furniture isn’t always a clear-cut procedure.
