5 Ergonomic New Year's Resolutions for 2017

Ergonomic New Year's Resolutions for 2017
It's time to start kicking back pain and office discomfort to the curb. Today on the OfficeAnything.com blog we're highlighting 5 ergo inspired New Year's resolutions to get you started on the right foot. If you're ready to take back your work day in 2017, you're in the right place. We'll have you sitting posture perfect and operating at peak performance levels in no time.

1.) I Won't Slouch In My Office Chair


Slouching In Office Chair

It sounds like a simple fix, but believe it or not, it's one of the biggest posture related problems in the workplace. Each time you lean away from that fancy ergonomic chair you spent a small fortune on, you're missing out on the benefits and support it's capable of providing your back. Start the new year off right by committing to keeping your back in contact with your chair at all times when sitting. You'll be more efficient and comfortable in no time!

2.) I Won't Look Down To Type


Don't Look Down To Type

Still looking down at your keyboard platform to type? It's time to make a change! Even if a typing class is required, you need to invest in your personal productivity. Once you get those eyes up and on the screen you'll be computing faster and more efficient than ever. That 1 finger key punching method needs to become obsolete before you do.

3.) I Will Take A 10 Minute Break Once Every Hour


Take Short Breaks At Work

Believe it or not, sitting for long periods of time can actually shorten your life span. As we spend hours upon hours working at our desks, taking short breaks is an absolute must. Get into the habit of taking a 10 minute break every hour to stretch out those muscles and readjust your eyes. Go grab a quick drink of water to stay hydrated while you're at it. If taking breaks just isn't an option, invest in a sit to stand desktop attachment like the Volante from Systematix that promotes continuous movement in the workplace. You'll be glad you did!

4.) I Won't Use The Base of My Office Chair As A Foot Rest


Office Chair Posture Tips

This habit can actually be pretty hard to break! All too often workers "perch" on the base of their office chair. When they do, blood flow is restricted. When blow flow is restricted, fatigue sets in and muscle strain is sure to follow. When working at your office desk be sure to keep your feet flat on the ground at facing forward at all times. This will ensure that you're ergonomically correct and ready to be at your best.

5.) I Will Keep My Computer Screens At Eye Level


Ergonomic Monitor Mount

Last but certainly not least, commit to keeping your computer screens at eye level in 2017. This new year's resolution doesn't have to cost a single dollar. You can raise your computer screens to a healthy operating height with a stack of books, a cardboard box, or even some magazines. It might not look pretty, but it will certainly reduce visual strain and neck pain. When funds become available, we highly recommend making the switch to a clamp on computer screen mount for your workstation. It will increase usable desk space while simultaneously providing you with exceptional adjustment capabilities that will really come in handy.

Here you'll see incredibly innovative products, finishes, and more from brands like Mayline, Global Total Office, and OFM that never fail to impress. It was an incredible year in the office design world. Now let's award the brands and products that did it best.

The iOO chair is an ergonomic marvel. It offers a long list of ergonomic attributes that work in harmony with the user to provide an unrivaled sitting experience. In a category with some seriously stiff competition, the iOO mesh back executive chair from Eurotech more than holds its own.

Collection of The Year: Medina by Mayline

Mayline Medina Office Furniture

This one wasn't even close! Medina sold better than any office furniture line we've ever had. With trendy finishes like Textured Sea Salt and Gray Steel, Medina was a breath of fresh air in a world filled with traditional cherry and maple tones. The only sad part was that Medina sold so much that it was out of stock for much of the year. Mayline and our team could barely keep up with demand. If you're interested in office furniture from the Mayline Medina collection be sure to order in advance!

Best Ergonomic Product: Volante by Systematix

Volante Desktop Riser

It's new, it's cool, and it's incredibly versatile! The Volante sit to stand desk attachment from Systematix helps prevent the need for extended sitting sessions. This heavy duty product is built to withstand the demands of tough work environments without the breakdowns experienced by similar products. Volante sit to stand stations promote continuous movement, improve blood flow, and much more. Add one of these handy units and you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

Best Conference Table: Zira by Global Total Office

Powered Conference Table

Zira was a serious contender for collection of the year. It's the most customizable modular line on the market. The conference room tables from the Global Zira collection are truly in a league of their own. They take 4 to 5 weeks to manufacturer, so order in advance. Those who do are awarded with high tech meetings and streamlined efficiency.

Best Bargain Buy: Superior Laminate Casegoods by Offices To Go

Offices To Go Superior Laminate Furniture

Shoppers on a budget turned to the office furniture from the Superior Laminate Casegoods collection by Offices To Go. This cost effective line of desks, reception stations, and conference room solutions provides an unrivaled combination of value, appeal, and quality.

Best Lounge Collection: River by Global Total Office

River Modular Lounge Furniture

The Global River collection made it easy to think outside the box with reception, lounge, and waiting room makeover projects. If you're tired of traditional sofa and lounge chair configurations, the modular components from the River lounge furniture collection by Global is a must see.

Best New Product: Endure Power Benches by OFM

OFM Endure Bench

We can't say enough good things about OFM's all new Endure collection. These retro-industrial benches with powered tops and swivel out stools are unlike anything on the market. Endure benches can be used in professional meeting areas, or to craft elite cafe and bistro environments.

Trend of The Year: Open Concept

Open Concept Office Furniture

From East Coast to West, the open concept trend swept the nation in 2016 and is showing no signs of slowing down. As businesses look to promote collaboration and team interaction, traditional cubicles are being kicked to the curb in exchange for open concept office furniture from Mayline and Global Total Office.

Brand of The Year: OFM, Inc.

OFM Office Furniture

With so many new product releases it's hard to know where to begin. Let's just say OFM, Inc. absolutely dominated the furniture world in 2016. Their all new Essentials seating collection has made it easier and more affordable than ever to get comfortable in professional settings. Powered benches from their new Axis collection improve the guest waiting experience as well as corporate appeal. OFM even enhanced their Marque reception desk collection with the addition of an all new white finish option. While competitors are hard at work looking for ways to imitate the latest trends, OFM is hard at work setting them in motion. We can't wait to see what they do next!

Year In Review: A Look Back At 2016's Hottest Office Remodeling Trends

Each year office remodeling trends come and go, but a select few change the game for the long haul! Today on the OfficeAnything.com blog we'll take a look at the top 8 trends of 2016 to determine which you should continue to incorporate into your projects. From gray wood tones to metal desks, we're ready to help you take your interiors to the next level in the new year.

1.) Gray Wood Tones


Gray Office Furniture Finish Sample

Popular gray wood office furniture finish options like Absolute Acajou from Global and Gray Steel from Mayline took 2016 by storm. As shoppers and designers looked for new and innovative ways to step outside the realm of traditional finishes like cherry, maple, and mahogany. Look for the gray movement to continue throughout all of 2017. Additional tones like dark espresso and mocha will also be popular.

2.) Coastal Makeovers


Coastal Office Interior with Mid Century Modern Writing Desk

This emerging trend is just getting started! The coastal look is rapidly gaining momentum. Shabby sheik furniture using natural wood tones and chrome accents have become ultra hot in the 4th quarter of 2016. Brands like Modway are capitalizing on this movement with executive style writing desks like the Tinker. Use light blues, soft greens, and grays to help create beach vibes within your office interior in the new year.

3.) Mid Century Modern Office Chairs


Mid Century Modern Office Chair

Sleek mid century modern office chairs became the go to choice for conference and executive office makeover projects in 2016. As table space is always at a premium, the days of using bulky conference chairs has rapidly come to an end. Designers are helping businesses maximize square footage with mid century modern conference seating solutions like the Joplin and Hendrix models from Woodstock Marketing.

4.) Powered Conference Tables


Powered Conference Table

Powered conference furniture went from being an overpriced novelty trend to an industry standard! As with all technology, the market became saturated with power ready conference tables, and the price came down accordingly. You can now create an awesome multi media boardroom with a powered table for under a thousand bucks. Collections like Medina from Mayline are your best bet if you're looking to save a buck. If you want to really take your space to the next level, check out the custom powered conference tables from the Global Zira Collection. They're the best in the business!

5.) Open Concept Workstations


Open Concept Office Furniture

Tired of spending your office life in a closed off cubicle? You're not alone! Thankfully, today's top furniture manufacturers heard your cry. The open concept trend made it's way to the workplace in 2016 and is showing no signs of slowing down. New open concept desk collections from brands like Mayline and Global Total Office help promote collaboration and team interaction that kick performance into overdrive.

6.) Sit To Stand Stations


Sit To Stand Desktop Riser

Sitting for long periods of time is very unhealthy. You need to take at least one 10 minute break per hour regardless of what ergonomic tools you incorporate into your space. That being said, a sit to stand desk top riser like the 5100 model from OFM will help you avoid extended sits while simultaneously improving blood flow and reducing fatigue. This trend has gone from the workplace to the home in 2016.

7.) Modular Lobby Seating


Modular Lobby Seating

It's time to start thinking outside the box with your lobby remodel! Sure a sofa and two lounge chairs will get the job done, but why not maximize your space with modular seating. The integration of modular lobby seating will help improve the guest waiting experience. This trend isn't going anywhere! Look for new modular lobby seating collections with tablet arm chairs and power ready benches to hit the market in 2017.

8.) Metal Office Furniture


Metal Office Furniture

Last but certainly not least, the retro-industrial look was hot in 2016. With this new trend, we saw an abundance of metal furniture hit the market. Metal desks and tables offer exceptional durability that will have your interiors looking great for years to come. No brand jumped on board with this movement more than OFM. Their Endure tables and Mesa desks are definitely worth a look!

How To Create A Cool Coastal Office Interior

How To Create A Coastal Office Interior
The coastal look is hot! That being said, to create beach vibes with your office remodel, you'll need a little help from today's most popular furniture brands. In addition to the awesome product suggestions provided in today's post, we'll also be highlighting design tips that promote a coastal feel your office visitors will love. Prepare to be impressed!

Those looking to create a coastal office interior will want to start by selecting a color palette. Trending coastal tones like light blues, bright greens, whites, and grays are the way to go. Nearly every reputable manufacturer on the planet is now offering coastal upholstery options as well as beachy furniture finishes that will no doubt take your project over the top.

Coastal Gray Furniture FinishOnce committed to a color palette, you'll be ready to start planning out your configuration. This step is absolutely essential. You can never be too careful when it comes to space planning. Take accurate dimensions of your space. Be sure to take note of all entry ways, power outlets, and windows that will affect the way your furniture fits. There's nothing worse than purchasing all new office furniture only to find that it doesn't fit properly. Ouch!

Now it's time to select a desk! As the main focal point of your space, the desk you choose says a lot about your design theme. This year, brands like Mayline are making it easy to create coastal executive interiors. Their textured driftwood office desks from the Sterling collection are a must consider!

Coastal Writing DeskThose tackling coastal inspired home remodeling projects will want to check out the mid century modern writing desk models from Modway. These desks with beach flair are absolutely stunning and surprisingly affordable.

Modern Task ChairAfter you've settled on a desk, it's time to pick a chair to match. If you've gone with a gray wood office furniture finish, selecting a green chair will really make your space stand out. We love the 402W Oroblanco computer chair from the iDesk seating collection. This comfy swivel chair will really stand out with it's complimenting gray mesh back. Attractive seat color options are available like Celedon to rock your coastal remodel!

White Leather Ribbed Back Office ChairIf you're going for a more upscale executive feel, a leather office chair will likely be needed. To stick with your theme, we recommend the Joplin from Woodstock Marketing. In white leather, this trendy ribbed back chair will earn your coastal interior the positive compliments it deserves. Ribbed back office chairs like the Joplin have been incredibly hot in 2016. They offer European flair and the sleek characteristics needed to maximize operating space around the desk without sacrificing comfort. Chairs like the Joplin can also be found in coastal upholstery options like gray, brown, and red leather!

Last but certainly not least, no coastal office interior would be complete without cool accessories! Start by visiting your local flea markets, thrift stores, and swap meets. You'll likely find vintage coastal decor that's unique and won't break the budget.

Consider cool wall art, metal lighting fixtures, and sea glass colored vases for your space. Once you've added a few cool conversation pieces, further round out your interior with white linen curtains. Bring in a bit of the outdoors with a mini palm tree planted in a coastal pot. Before you know it, you'll have an awesome coastal work space that's nothing short of inspiring!

In the long run, a coastal interior can be created efficiently and effectively without breaking the budget. You just need to know where to look! We recommend brands like Mayline, Modway, and Woodstock Marketing as they always focus on products that key in on the hottest trends.

As the coastal movement continues to thrive, don't be afraid to think ouside the box with your makeover. If you're not finding new products to utilize in your makeover, don't rule out crafting your own furniture. Salvaged wood and a little DIY practice will have you on the path to remodeling success!

How To Throw An Awesome Office Christmas Party

How To Throw An Office Christmas Party
Are you prepping for an upcoming office Christmas party? You're in the right place! Today on the OfficeAnything.com we're taking a break from design tips and furniture reviews to provide you with the advice needed to throw a rocking corporate event. From our team to yours, have a fun and safe Holiday.

Themes

Beach Office Christmas Party Theme IdeasFirst things first, you need to select a theme! Skip "Nutcracker Christmas" and go with something a bit more fun. We've batted themes around with our team and came up with a few we think you'll love.
  • Margarita Christmas is pretty self explanatory. We actually expanded on an idea we got from an episode of 'The Office'. Have everybody wear sombreros and break out the blender. You can spice things up a bit more with a "Best Margarita" contest. Give the winner a $20.00 gift certificate to your best local Mexican restaurant. Load up a piƱata and you're ready to roll. Just make sure to be responsible!
  • You might also consider keeping things a bit more traditional. The "classic" Christmas theme can be far from boring with a little decorating ingenuity. Grab a few sets of antlers to dress your offie chairs up as reindeer. Turn the office reception area into Santa's village. Finding ideas for the classic Christmas theme is super easy with social sharing sites like Pinterest.
  • We also love the idea of a beachy Christmas. Pick up a couple palm trees and sub them in for the traditional Christmas pine. Have everyone dress up in coastal attire and mix up a few boat drinks. This is another theme that's easy to pull off and super fun!
Food

Once you've settled on a theme, it's time to figure out the food! If you want your office Christmas party to be a success, you'll need tasty treats. We recommend catering the main course and sides. Then have your team do a pot luck with the deserts. They're the best part anyway. Having the main items catered will reduce the stress involved with planning process. Typically 20 people throwing in $10.00 each will be more than enough. When it comes to throwing a great office party, the food is typically the easiest part.

Games

It's typically hard to get your team involved in Christmas related games during an office party. That being said, if the games are fun, they'll be far more likely to join in. We recommend giant Jenga. You can purchase a set on line for pretty cheap. To play effectively, you'll likely need to move around a few office desks and workstations for optimal space.

Office Christmas GiftsYou can also bring up a few tailgating games. There's nothing wrong with washer toss or corn hole! The classic games that don't require a bunch of rules are typically the most enjoyable at office parties. While White Elephant and Secret Santa are classic, they require more work up front that's typically going to be met with resistance. Remember, the less stress the better. It's sad but true, your party will likely be super fun if you don't require much from the employees.

Gifts

Gifts aren't a requirement, but they are a nice way to spread a little Christmas cheer. We recommend putting a $10.00 max budget. You can turn gifts into "awards" or go with one of the classic games mentioned above if you feel your coworkers are up for it. When it comes to gifts, it's really the thought that counts. You won't be blowing anybody away with a $10.00 item, but at least they'll know you care. If you're coworkers are hard to buy for, create a "gag gift only" rule to keep things light and funny.

Final Thoughts

Don't get fooled into thinking you need a ton of adult beverages to host a great party. In the long run, responsibility is far more important. Having fun with your coworkers is really about team bonding and morale. Keep things simple, light, and as stress free as possible. This way you're able to kick off the new year on the right track.

The industrial metal legs on this OFM boardroom table pair perfectly with the thick tempered glass operating surface to create unrivaled wow factor. At the respectable price of $875.99, you'll be hard pressed to find a better buy for your boardroom.

Cherryman Verde Conference TableWe couldn't stop talking about Cherryman Industries in 2016. Year after year this manufacturer continues to impress.

Verde tables are unlike anything on the market. With boat shaped operating surfaces and white accented legs that double as wire management troughs, they are the total package.

Talk about the best of both worlds. With a 9008 model Endure series powered bench with swivel out stools you can blend retro vibes with modern functionality. These incredibly versatile tables are perfect for conference, bistro, meeting, and break room areas.

Retro Red Leather Office ChairLast year, finding retro office chairs with modern ergonomic features was easier said than done. Thankfully, brands like Woodstock Marketing have had our backs in 2016. Their Joplin collection red leather office chair offers an unrivaled blend of modern and retro flair that will absolutely wow your valued office visitors.

In addition to Woodstock, other reputable manufacturers like Offices To Go got in on the retro craze with chairs like the 11786B. This designer office chair continues to provide interiors with a major blast of retro vibes that will earn any an abundance of compliments. The 11786B is a must consider in upholstery options like Saddle and Charcoal.

Retro Coffee TableVintage accent tables like the SCFTSCR from the Mayline Sorrento collection made it easy for businesses tackling waiting room remodeling projects to capitalize on the retro movement. This elegant oval coffee table with bourbon cherry finish must be seen in person to be fully appreciated.

New products are great, but any designer will tell you; a few authentic retro products are an absolute must if you want your interior to feel legit. That being said, if you're looking to go retro in 2017 and beyond, you'll need to source vintage products from your local flea market, swap meet, and salvage yard. While we certainly recommend a new office chair that offers retro flair without sacrificing core ergonomic values, that doesn't mean you can't keep things authentic with real retro lighting fixtures and wall art! Finding authentic retro office items is also really fun. Don't be afraid to get into the process.

The retro trend is showing no signs of slowing down. We fully expect brands like OFM, Mayline, and Modway to further their retro product offering in 2017 with more office desks, tables, and seating solutions. If you're in need of a little design inspiration, it'd definitely a great idea to check out social charing sites like Pinterest and Instagram. You'll be at no shortage of cool retro office interiors to sneak ideas from.
