Office Design Trends: The Best of 2017

This year we saw brands like Systematix, Modway, and Woodstock Marketing set new office design trends in motion with innovative products. From sit to stand desktop attachments to modular lounge furniture, the office design world will never be the same. Today on the blog we'll take a look back at the 5 hottest trends that hit the scene this year.

1.) Sit To Stand Furniture

No trend was hotter in 2017 than that of sit to stand furniture. The ability to reduce fatigue and improve posture was just too much for shoppers to pass up. Once considered a trend, sit to stand desk surface convertors have now become the industry standard. As sitting for long periods of time can actually shorten your lifespan, the demand for height adjustable products is at an all time high. Popular units like the Volante from Systematix and S2S from ESI Ergonomic Solutions are paving the way for health operating in the workplace.

2.) Mid Century Modern Office Chairs

The mid century movement is still in full swing. Shoppers are loving the look of sleek mid century modern office chairs for conference room and private office remodeling projects. If you're wanting a few mid century chairs for your business, look no further than Modway. Their selection is second to none. Popular mid century chairs like the Tempo will do wonders for your interiors.

3.) Powered Conference Tables

It was a year of streamlined presentations and effective strategizing sessions if you invested in a powered conference room table from a brand like Global Total Office. The tables from their Zira collection set new industry trends in motion. The ability to effectively showcase power point presentations, charge devices, and collaborate with meeting guests is never going out of style. Thanks to the tables from the Global Zira series nearly every office furniture manufacturer is now offering some form of power ready table or after market power modules to work with your existing furniture.

4.) Collaborative Desking

If you were looking for cubicle alternatives in 2017, the odds are you turned your furniture search to collaborative desking. Brands like Mayline made the quest for improved collaboration in the workplace quick and easy with the components from the e5 series this year. In addition, shoppers and design teams alike turned to the Bungee SL line from Global. The ability to create open concept interiors than encourage interaction is a must consider for any growing business.

5.) Modular Lounge Furniture

Sofa and lounge chair configuration will always have their place. That being said, if you're ready to look outside the box to open up the possibilities within your welcoming area, modular lounge seating is the way to go. Take one look at the connectable components from the Woodstock Jefferson Series and you'll see what we mean. Modular lounge furniture lines like Jefferson make it easy to get the most out of available square footage and maximize corporate appeal.
