One industry leader, when interviewed about future office furniture trends, has stressed that items which allow businesses to run a flexible workplace are increasingly likely to be the most valuable.
The office interiors boss said that modern businesses were looking to maintain a flexible working environment while keeping expenditure minimal. Adaptable, functional and multi-purpose items desk chairs and the like are set to be in strong demand.
He added: “It’s clearly not easy to predict what the working environment might look like in the future, or how working practices, office layouts or staffing levels may change. So items which can help fulfil a range of current tasks and be responsive to constantly changing needs could increasingly become a business essential.”
The development of lighter, smaller computing technology has also had an impact. Office chairs still need to swivel and be completely adjustable, but also to have more padding and support allowing users to comfortably access tablet devices and laptops.
When it comes to meeting room furniture, the trend could be towards a greater demand for tables consisting of a number of smaller units that can be altered to suit larger gatherings, or smaller meetings.
More than ever, businesses have to make the most of space that is available. This can be seen in particular in the growing use of bench desk in general working areas. They can be used by more people in a smaller area than standard desks.
Another popular trend is for desks with increased levels of storage.
So bear these points in time next time you place an order for furniture in your office.
