What an awesome year! It's hard to believe it's almost over. In honor of all the awesome office innovations in 2013, we thought it would be fun to take a look back at our personal favorites. We've highlighted a few picks from the two major categories (furniture and seating) to showcase just how easy it was to design a cutting edge workspace this year.
First up for our furniture category is the Amber casegoods collection by Cherryman Industries. While this line has been around, 2013 saw a complete revamp. New colors, desk configurations, and expandable conference table models were added to take your office to the next level. This affordable line is an absolute value that will no doubt continue it's dominance in 2014.
As always, Mayline was a key contributor to the furniture world. New lines like the Cohere and e5 office furniture collection raised the industry bar to a whole new level. The combination of metal and glass accents on these popular lines created an industrial style trend that's still building steam. The e5 and Cohere collection include a wide range of modular components that allow businesses to grow when needed. While cubicles will always have their place, the open desking configurations from these hot collections are rapidly changing the way we look at work floor furniture. Needles to say, the Mayline Office Furniture for Sale this year was a huge hit with interior design teams, industry professionals, and consumers alike.
Global Total Office is recognized as one of the most innovative seating manufacturers in the industry, and deservedly so! However, with so many excellent chairs this brand can often be forgotten for their incredible furniture. No need to worry Global, we have you covered! Lines like the Zira and Princeton collections were the talk of the town in 2013. As Global introduced pre configured desk configurations for the first time, consumers were easily able to spec office spaces with some of the hottest modern furniture to ever hit the workplace. Over the last few months Global has expanded their Zira line to include reception desks and modern conference tables for sale to take your business to the next level. The affordable price point and incredible style have made Zira and Princeton absolute winners.
Once known as Ergo Office Seating, Ergonomic Contract Furniture is still making big waves in the world of professional office chairs. Hot new models like the Cannes High Back Conference Chair have revitalized the way we look at seating for meeting area needs. This Euro inspired chair features a mesh design and polished accents to form a totally unique look. The modern style is sure to impress even the harshest critics.
The needs of office waiting room and reception areas were met in a major way by OFM in 2013. This cutting edge manufacturer prides themselves on setting trends rather than following them. This year OFM added to their popular Net Beam Seating Line while introducing a variety of two tone upholstered products from the Uno collection. That being said, our favorite OFM seating line to hit the market this year was the all new Distinct series. Products like the 831 Distinct Lounge Chair feature an incredible design highlighted by an open arm look and metal base. Matching sofas are also available to complete the look to perfection.
While all of the brands highlighted in today's article have been fantastic, we find ourselves circling back to one key manufacturer who contributed to both the furniture and seating worlds in a major way. As our favorite brand of 2013, Global Total Office was a must to end today's article with. Hot new items like the 3372LM Sirena lounge chair pushed the industry standards by bringing back a retro look that's truly impressive. Traditional decor fans will love the additions to their popular Islands line of wood guest seating for executive office and reception area needs. Last but certainly not least, new models like the G20 and 6673-2 Arti Chair took the ergo world to a whole new level. These high end chairs are built for upscale work environments with their customizable features and luxury status. Needless to say, Global rocked the house this year and we are super excited to see what 2014 brings from this on point manufacturer!
