So, you're taking a look at your workplace, and you're realizing something: now that people are working remotely (part-time or fully), and now that people in the workplace are distanced and separated, you're left with too much furniture for current needs.Read More
Are you going back to the office occasionally, part-time, or in shifts? You may notice something pretty quickly: while the way we work has changed, your office layout hasn't. Unused desks, chairs, tables, conference areas, etc. are plentiful, and even though we're sitting 6+ feet apart from others, empty chairs in-between make us feel a greater distance, a glaring visual reminder of our new normal.
When our work style changes, our workplaces have to adapt accordingly. So... what do we do with the furniture we don't need right now?Read More
It's the question on many minds: "when my team returns to the office, what will that look like?" Think about your space for a moment. Will you need all of the furniture you have? What will you do if you have too much or too little? How are you arranging your space to keep safe distances, and how will you keep that space clean and safe for your team?Read More
It's the question on every parent's mind: "How will my child stay safe and healthy in a school environment?"
As our children prepare for the school year, we know things will be different. Whether they're fully remote, fully in-school, or a hybrid of both, our learning environments are going to look and feel a little different, but that doesn't mean they have to distract from a child's learning! In these fast-changing times, we're staying attentive to the latest research to design safer classrooms with the right kind of furniture and technology to help keep our kids as safe as they can be. Check out what some of our schools are adopting to make safer spaces:Read More
You need to make a phone call, but you don't want to disturb the whole office. You need a soundproof space to work or call from, but that just doesn't exist in your current area (or at least, not without leaving the building). Maybe you need a quick team huddle, virtually or in-person, and you don't want others to overhear, to disrupt anyone else, or to be disturbed by ambient noises.Read More
In theory, an inexpensive big-box store chair for your home office might make sense. They're typically a less-expensive option, and who cares if they're not that comfortable or if they break - they're cheap to replace, right? Think again.Read More
More than likely, you're going to have to make some changes to your workplace in order to safely return to the office. Frequent cleaning and disinfecting services, new safety signage and guidelines, and even rearrangement of your space to give 6-foot distances between your workers - they're all ways we're helping our clients get back to the workplace, but what will your unique space look like? How will you make it work in a way that looks great, works well, and doesn't break the bank?Read More
73% of professionals said they would be more comfortable working from home if they had a better home office setup, according to our recent Return to Work Survey. Products like an ergonomic chair, a sit-to-stand desk, and monitor arms aren't just luxuries or wish-list items - they're the key to working productively, and they're what will keep you working harder, smarter, and longer without strain! But how do you know if your set-up is truly ergonomic?Read More
