In our blog post of last year outlining workplace trends for 2018, we highlighted how office design was moving towards a more informal approach, taking elements usually associated with home office spaces and incorporating them into our daily work spaces.
This trend has continued, with offices seeing the value of making their working environment a space, like our homes, that we actively want to be in. It is only logically that office furniture design has also followed this trend.
What Are We Seeing For Office Furniture Trends 2019?
Office furniture designers are extolling the virtues of the concept "resimercial", a combination of residential and commercial, ensuring that we feel as comfortable in our office chair as we do in our home office set-up. This type of furniture needs to be robust enough to survive the hours we spend at work, but also needs to be comfortable enough for us to be at our most productive.
You will see this type of office design and accompanying furniture at some of the quality co-working spaces that are popping up all over the country. In order to attract clients who would opt to work in these spaces, the design, fixture and fittings have to be on trend and to ensure that anybody using these spaces feels as happy to be there as they would be working at home.
Here at 20sixltd we are seeing this trend first hand as our clients are requesting us to provide office furniture that not only reflects their company culture and branding, but that also help their employees to enjoy being in the workplace and ensuring that maximum productivity is gained from the expense of an office refit, refurbishment or move.
