Office Design Trends: Spring Recap 2018

The spring season brought us a ton of new products and trends. Brands like Global and Bush paved the way with innovative workplace solutions designed to boost corporate appeal and improve functionality. With the summer right around the corner, we thought it would be helpful to recap what trends took the spring season by storm while providing a look at what to expect in the coming months.

Responsive Chairs

Sora Responsive Office Chair

The spring gave us a bunch of new responsive seating solutions from brands like Global. Responsive chairs will soon become the industry standard as the minimize the need for adjusting and maximize comfort. All new responsive chairs like the Sora are a must consider for shoppers looking to improve posture and reduce back pain while tasking in the office.

Gray Office Furniture

Gray Office Furniture - Bush Studio C Collection

This trend has been booming for a while now and it's showing no signs of slowing down. Gray has taken over white as the most requested office furniture finish on the market. If you're loving gray, check out Mayline collections like Medina and Sterling. Our personal favorite is the Studio C collection from Bush. This full service line offers gray and white desk configurations with just the right amount of contemporary flair.

Perch Stools

Ergonomic Perch Stool - Vivo by OFM

With the demand for sit to stand furniture at an all time high, a new genre of commercial seating has emerged. Perch stools provide additional support when working with standing height furniture without reducing the users ability to stay active. Perch stools like the Vivo from OFM are among our favorites. At just $169.99, it's an absolute bargain buy that provides a wide range of ergonomic benefits that can't be overlooked.

Height Adjustable Tables

A height adjustable conference table like the Confluence from Safco will make it easy for you and your coworkers to get creative while staying active. Height adjustable tables are modern, cool, and supremely effective. They're great for meetings, training, and so much more.

Sit To Stand Attachments

More and more businesses are budgeting for sit to stand attachments when remodeling their interiors. Sit to stand attachments (also knows as desktop risers) make it easy to transition smoothly throughout task filled work days to avoid the need for stagnant sitting sessions that cause even the best posture habits to suffer.

Electric Desks

Shoppers on the hunt for all new office furniture will want to be on the look out for electric desks that raise and lower at the push of a button to encourage sit to stand transitioning. Popular collections like the 400 series from Bush offer electric desks with matching storage components in 3 quick shipping finish options.

Metal Furniture

With metal accented office furniture you can create a trendy industrial vibe that's sure to impress. Take one look at the all new Fulcrum collection from OFM and you'll quickly see what we mean. This fashionable furniture from this new collection is sure to pave the way for refined office interiors this summer and beyond.

Universal Power Modules

If you've already purchased a new conference table and it doesn't have surface level USB and data inputs, you're not out of luck. This season we say a variety of cool new universal hubs released from brands like Bush and ESI. The ESI FlexCharge9 is one of our personal favorites as it offers a circular design that's great for professional meeting areas.

Modular Lobby Seating

Getting the most out of your lobby square footage is essential. Using modular lobby seating to maximize seating potential without making your space feel cluttered is just plain smart. Emerging collections like Jefferson from Woodstock Marketing will help you make a lasting impression on your valued visitors.

There's a lot to be excited about this summer. In just under a week, NeoCon 50 kicks off. Here the best manufacturers on the planet will reveal their new products and set new design trends in motion. Each year the summer brings us the hottest new furniture and seating of the year. We know that brands like Global and OFM are ready to take NeoCon 50 by storm with responsive task chairs, sit to stand products, and much more.
