It's getting chilly outside but we'll help warm things up with the hottest design trends of the season! This year brands like Mayline, Global Total Office, and Cherryman Industries are helping businesses craft innovative interiors designed to improve functionality and performance. In today's article we'll highlight the cutting edge products and remodeling trends that are currently dominating the workplace. Enjoy!
1.) Gray Wood Finishes
We mentioned this booming trend in our Fall design trends article and it's still showing now signs of slowing down. As businesses look to step out side the realm of traditional furniture finishes like cherry, maple, and mahogany, gray wood grain tones have taken over. Brands like Mayline and Global Total Office offer popular furniture lines like Medina and Zira with awesome gray wood finish options.
2.) Ribbed Back Seating
Ribbed back chairs offer the slimming design characteristics needed to maximize seating around the conference table. Ribbed chairs like the Joplin from Woodstock Marketing provide European stylings and a comfortable sit. If you want to kick up your conference room, kick those bulky, over stuffed executive style chairs to the curb. Ribbed chairs are in!
3.) Powered Lounge Furniture
Businesses are always looking for ways to improve the guest waiting experience. With powered lounge furniture, your valued visitors can work while they wait. Brands like OFM have introduced super cool powered lounge seating lines like Morph and Serenity that have become instant favorites of growing businesses. These cutting edge collections feature AC and USB inputs conveniently located in chair arms. Simply plug in your seating and you're ready to roll!
4.) Industrial Style
The Industrial look is in! To capitalize on this booming winter design trend you'll want to find metal accented office furniture for your space. If you want to go with new furniture, check out the OFM Mesa collection. This line of affordable desks makes it easy to keep your space in line with the latest trends, without breaking the budget. You can also add cool industrial accents to your space to keep in line with this movement. Check out salvage yards, swap meets, and antique stores to find industrial lighting fixtures that will work with your new decor theme!
5.) High Tech Conference Tables
These days it's all about powering up the conference room! The ability to streamline the meeting process with a powered conference table simply can't be passed up by growing businesses. Brands like Global Total Office have made the task simple and efficient with their Zira table collection. These top of the line powered conference room table models can be equipped with Oasis series power modules that offer user friendly input options like USB, HDMI, Audio, Phone, Ethernet, and more.
6.) Tablet Seating
Tablet arm chairs are popping up everywhere this winter! Once thought of as a product specifically for corporate waiting areas, tablet arm chairs are now being utilized in private office settings and training rooms. The Mayline Thesis chair collection was released just last month. This lineup of tablet arm training room seating is sure to keep your students and employees operating at peak performance levels.
7.) Flip Top Training Tables
Fixed leg training room table models are rapidly being replaced by flip top lines. Flip top training room tables look great, save space, and cost about the same as their predecessors. The ability to drop the top, nest tables along walls, and reconfigure in minutes is too good to pass up. Think outside the box with your training room and go modular with the aid of flip top tables!
8.) Open Desking
Yet another trend that's been hot all year long! Open desking promotes collaboration in the workplace and is sure to provide a more visually appealing look when compared to alternative panel furniture systems. Traditional cubicles and panel furniture layouts tend to make work floors look overly crammed. With open desking you'll be creating more cutting edge work environments built around the core principles of teamwork.
