Furniture Life: The Best of June 2018

The summer season kicked off in a major way. June has been hot and exciting in the office design world. From the new products released at NeoCon 50 to the collaborative trends that continue to emerge, there's no better time to remodel your commercial interiors. Today on the blog we'll catch you up with everything that happened this month.

Global Terina Height Adjustable Tables
NeoCon 50

June is all about NeoCon! As the premier convention for commercial furniture manufacturers, ergonomic enthusiasts and designers, NeoCon is where the latest and greatest products are released. This year manufacturers like Global raised the bar with fashionable new chairs like the Factor and height adjustable multi purpose tables like the Terina. Each year NeoCon gives us a glimpse of where the industry is heading, and 2018 was no exception.

Volante Sit To Stand AttachmentSit To Stand Is Here To Stay

The market is being flooded with sit to stand products that encourage continuous movement in the workplace. From desktop risers to electric desks that raise and lower at the push of a button, sit to stand furniture is changing the way we work and adapt to stay healthy. Innovative sit to stand products are coming out left and right. They're worth being excited about! If you're looking to make the switch to a sit to stand station, consider a high performance attachment like the Volante from Systematix available for just $299.99.

Vivo Perch Stool - Sit To Stand SeatingMore Perch Stools Are Coming

With the popularity of sit to stand furniture, we've seen a demand for more and more perch stools. As an alternative to traditional office chairs, perch stools make it easy to enjoy a bit more support while working at standing height surfaces. Popular options are on the way from brands like Safco and OFM that are portable and can be taken on the go from space to space.

gray office furnitureWhite vs. Gray

There's a battle going on in the world of furniture finishes. White and Gray laminates are squaring off to take the top spot in a world filled with overly redundant cherry and mahogany tones. In truth, you can't go wrong with either white or gray. That being said, gray is a bit more practical. Gray office furniture offers the perfect blend of coastal and contemporary elements to rock your interior. Check out lines like Studio C from Bush to see what we mean.

Bright Office Chairs Are Trending

bright green office chairThere's nothing wrong with classic black office chairs. They're timeless and never going out of style. That being said, the summer has brought a ton of cool color options that will help liven up your commercial interiors. Bright chair colors are a great way to make interiors pop without overpowering furniture. Reds, blues, and bright greens have all become go-to options for design teams looking to kick corporate appeal into overdrive. Check out the new 6942 Global Sora chair and the fashionable color options it's available in to see what we mean.

Collaborative Office FurnitureCollaboration Is Key

The buzzword of the year is "collaboration". At NeoCon 50 the word collaboration was thrown around more than the swag! Collaborative desking systems, tables, and workstations are taking the industry by storm. Businesses love the ability to strategize effectively and promote creativity. Do you remember when you got to work in groups back in grade school? Weren't you always excited? That's the same feeling you get when you break down the cubicle walls and start encouraging collaboration amongst employees. The good ideas will be flowing in no time. Collaborative furniture lines like e5 from Mayline offer everything you need to remodel your work floor. Powered conference tables from the Zira collection encourage collaboration and streamlined presentations. The options are truly limitless!

5 Things We Learned From NeoCon 50

NeoCon 50 just wrapped up. It was an amazing event as always. We came away impressed, inspired, and rejuvenated! Each year the top furniture and seating manufacturers come to NeoCon to reveal game changing products that will set new design trends in motion. 2018 was no exception. Today on the blog we'll highlight the 5 things we learned from NeoCon 50.

1.) It's All About Collaboration

open concept office furniture for group collaborating

The buzzword of the year is "collaboration". Traditional cubicle systems create obstructed sight lines and make employees feel closed off from one another. They're built for privacy and limit interaction. Collaborative office furniture is the complete opposite. With collaborative workstations you can create clean sight lines while simultaneously encouraging employee interaction and creativity.

The collaborative movement started on the work floor. It has since evolved and taken over training, conference, and guest waiting areas. With today's collaborative tables and seating you and your guests can get down to business more efficiently than ever. Collaborative furniture is inspiring, effective, and a must consider for any growing business.

2.) Responsive Chairs & Perch Stools are Taking Over

Global Sora weight sensing office chair

There were a ton of cool new responsive office chairs and perch stools on display at NeoCon 50. Our favorite was the Sora chair from Global. This multi functional task chair comes equipped with a weight sensing mechanism that automatically responds to the user to ensure an ergonomically correct sitting experience. Needless to say, chair shoppers like the idea of adjusting less to get comfortable. Responsive chairs reduce the ergonomic learning curve and maximize comfort.

With the popularity of sit to stand office furniture, the demand for perch stools is at an all time high. Perch stools help avoid the need for extended sits without totally sacrificing the support provided by a traditional task chair. With a height adjustable perch stool you can stay active and at all levels. Perch stools are often portable and meant to be used on-the-go throughout the day. You'll see coworkers walking around with these in no time!

3.) Gray Office Furniture Is Here To Stay

gray U shaped office desk

Gray office furniture has taken over white as the most requested option of 2018. Gray office furniture is contemporary while remaining practical. Nearly every furniture manufacturer on the planet is offering desks, tables, and storage components in some form of gray laminate tone.

Popular Furniture Collections with Gray Finish Options:

  • Zira by Global
  • Studio C by Bush
  • Sterling by Mayline
  • Medina by Mayline
  • Amber by Cherryman

4.) If It's Not Powered, It's Outdated

Global Zira conference table with Oasis module

All of the best new conference tables are available with factory installed power modules. If you're ready to remodel your meeting area, a powered table is the way to go. If you don't buy a powered table, you can always add a universal power module later. The point is, surface level USB and HDMI inputs come in very handy during presentations and group strategizing sessions. Our favorite powered table line continues to be Zira from Global as it offers the most advanced input options.

Electric desks and tables that raise and lower at the push of a button are also incredibly popular. They promote sit to stand transitioning and healthy work habits. Electric office furniture is the way of the future. In the next 5 to 10 years it will be the industry standard.

5.) The Bar Has Officially Been Raised

ergonomic office furniture

It's safe to say that the bar has officially been raised. NeoCon 50 taught us that it's okay to expect more. We're just scratching the surface of emerging trends like collaboration, responsive chairs, and sit to stand furniture. Just when you think you've got the industry figured out, a ground breaking product is released that changes the game. The good news is, today's office products are all about the user. Taking performance to the next level, boosting efficiency, and encouraging healthy habits is what it's all about. Needless to say, it's a very exiting time to remodel commercial interiors.

Sneak Peek: Summer Office Product Trends 2018

The days are getting hotter, just like the new product trends emerging in the office design world. With the summer right around the corner, we thought it would be fun and helpful to showcase a few of the most popular product genres we'll be seeing this season. From active seating to open concept cubicle alternatives, these workplace solutions will promote high end appeal and operational versatility.

1.) Active Seating

Ergonomic Perch Stool - Active Seating

In the ergonomic world, no product is gaining popularity faster than the perch stool. As a part of the active seating category, perch stools are rapidly becoming must haves. Workers who use height adjustable desks, tables, and workstations are loving active stools like the Vivo from OFM.

2.) Mobile Laptop Desks

Mobile Laptop Desk

Mobile laptop desks are becoming very popular for home and commercial applications. A mobile laptop desk will help you compute healthy and efficiently on the go. With a mobile laptop desk you can get the most out of your workspace and improve versatility. The 950 model from the Mayline Eastwinds collection is a great starter option if you're looking to hop on board with this trend.

3.) Height Adjustable Teaming Tables

electric teaming table

You've gotta appreciate the versatility of height adjustable office furniture. This summer we look forward to seeing more electric teaming tables that make it easy to transition between sitting and standing. The tables from Safco are among our favorites and more are on the way!

4.) Universal Power Modules

Bush USB Power Hub

Simple, effective, and affordable. Universal power modules are great for conference, training, lobby, break room, and any other space in need of a few USB and AC inputs. We love the FlexCharge9 from ESI and the AC99834BL USB Power Hub from Bush.

5.) Connectable Lounge Seating

Serpentine Seating Configuration

With connectable lounge seating you can make the most of your available square footage. The hottest modular lounge and lobby components on the market can be used for interiors of all sizes. Collections like Jefferson from Woodstock Marketing show where this emerging genre is heading. The days of using old school sofa and chair layouts is coming to an end.

6.) Responsive Chairs

Responsive Office Chair

Tired of pulling levers and twisting tension knobs to achieve the perfect sit? A responsive office chair like the Verte from RFM Preferred Seating will help you operate at peak performance levels without the headache. Responsive chairs automatically adjust on the fly to match the curve of your spine to ensure proper support. They will soon be the industry standard.

7.) Open Concept Cubicle Alternatives

Open Concept Cubicle Alternatives

Last but not least, more open concept cubicle alternatives are on the way. Why you ask? They encourage collaboration and spark creativity while creating clean sight lines. With open concept benching systems and modular group workstations your employees can interact without the obstruction of high cubicle walls that do little more than reduce noise. Open concept lines to consider include SideBar II and Bungee from Global Total Office.
