Office Design: 5 Things To Expect In 2017
1.) Expect More Gray Tones
Gray tones were incredibly hot in 2016, and 2017 will be no different. As coastal couture vibes continue to dominate interiors, gray woods and leather upholsteries will further cement themselves in a market still filled with overly redundant cherry and maple finish options. Gray is the new black. Going will a gray office furniture collection like Medina or Sterling from Mayline will keep your interior looking great for years to come.
2.) Expect More Mid Century Modern Office Chairs
The mid century modern office chair craze is in full swing. Brands like Modway and Eurotech Seating are making their mark with ultra cool mid century chairs that work great in executive, home, and conference room settings. Mid century modern chairs are classy, sleek, and surprisingly comfortable. Rest assured, the days of using bulky overstuffed chairs are rapidly coming to an end.
3.) Expect More Powered Furniture
Powered office furniture went from being an industry trend to an industry standard! Nearly every reputable manufacturer on the planet is offering some form of power ready collection designed to streamline day to day activists in the workplace. Cutting edge powered boardroom table solutions from brands like Global and Mayline should be highly considered by any business looking to kick productivity into overdrive.
4.) Expect Red Leather To Be Hot
Interior designers and shoppers alike are always looking for ways to make their projects stand out. Adding a little pop with a red leather office chair will certainly help accomplish this common remodeling goal. In 2017, red office seating will be dominating professional lobby, waiting room, and meeting areas.
5.) Expect More Heavy Duty Furniture
The phrase "you get what you pay for" will get a whole new meaning in 2017. As the industrial look continues to thrive, we fully expect an array of heavy duty office furniture collections to hit the market in 2017. Brands like OFM rocked 2016 with heavy duty metal products like the tables from their Endure collection and desks from the popular Mesa line. When investing in furniture, it's important to focus on high quality products you know are going to last. The industrial trend is definitely worth incorporating into your remodel. While stylish, metal desks and tables with an industrial vibe are also ready, willing, and able to tackle the toughest work environments.
