Glass Office Furniture Solutions

Glass Office Furniture

With the boom in modern office furniture came the demand for contemporary glass office furniture solutions. In today's post we will cover several awesome pieces of glass office furniture we feel you will love. When it comes to the latest trend setting furniture styles, The Office Furniture Blog has your every need covered!

Glass Conference Table

Our first item, the GT4794 model OFM, Inc. brand glass conference table was an easily selection for today's post. This fantastic new boardroom solution features the contemporary style we all love. However, these professional boardroom table configurations are built for a lot more than looks. They feature 5/8" thick glass surfaces, stainless steel bases, and are available with a variety of matching conference furniture to meet the needs of any space. The smaller version of this table, the GT3977 conference table is also a fantastic solution!

Next up, the Mayline Vision Computer Desk. This awesome home office desk combines a choice of anthracite or cherry laminate with tempered glass inserts to create a style that's hard to beat. We love this small glass computer desk solution as it provides contemporary flair for the low price of $142.99. That being said, we think this collection of modern computer desk solutions are great holiday gift ideas and are sure to impress. As most of you know, we love Mayline products and when it comes to cool computer desks, this one is a definite favorite.

Glass Corner Desk

Another awesome piece of glass office furniture that must be mentioned is the Calico Designs 50400. Even though we already highlighted a glass computer desk, we felt we had to include this awesome product as it's relatively new to our lineup of furniture. This great corner desk is perfect for home and executive office applications. The 50400 Monterey workstation features an ample worksurface with a combination of black and chrome plated legs. Another great holiday gift idea, the 50400 is selling out quick. Get yours while supplies last.

Glass Display Cabinet

Our fourth item up is this exclusive Brighton series glass wall cabinet with underneath storage. This item, from the Mayline Brighton Furniture collection, offers modern style for a price of only $465.99. Brighton furniture like this unique cabinet is manufactured of high quality laminates and creates Mayline's most affordable line of casegoods. Several other popular Brighton items are also available to match.

Last but not least, the Global Total Office Citi Collection table. This modern glass coffee table has been a huge hit in home, lounge, and reception spaces. The 7888 model is available in 9 laminate finishes and sells for $422.99 with free shipping. If you like glass reception tables, you will love the Citi collection!

Product Review: Calico Designs Jameson Work Centers

Jameson LS Work Center
First and foremost, we felt the need to say that the Calico Designs brand is set to make some big waves in the modern office furniture world. This relatively new manufacturer provides a host of awesome products that define the word affordable. From glass office desks to modern office chairs, Calico Designs is an excellent solution for home and professional business applications where budget matters! That being said, in today's post we will be reviewing one of our favorite Calico products, the Jameson LS Work Center. Enjoy!

The first thing you'll notice about the Jameson LS Work Center is the modern style. This awesome glass corner desk provides a contemporary look that is quite pleasing. With several models and color combinations to choose from, it's easy to match the Jameson station to your individual decor requirements.

Now that we've had a fantastic first impression, lets cover the basics. Here are the dimensions on this fantastic workstation.

Overall Dimensions: 59” W x 59” D x 29.5” H

Main Work Surface: 35.5” L x 20” D x 2pcs
Corner Connector: 20” x 20”

Calico Designs Furniture
On to the features! Jameson work centers feature a powder coated steel for durability along with a rear crossbar. Surfaces are made with tempered safety glass that add to the modern look. Floor levelers are included for uneven surfaces and adjust quite easily. The curved leg design, simple assembly, and quick shipping of this product just take it over the top.

We like to think of the Jameson as a high end glass computer desk that works well at home but fits perfectly in upscale executive offices. This desk has the look of stations priced well into the thousands, but with a price tag of only $225.99... value is the only word that comes to mind! We sure hope you'll give the Jameson LS Work Center a try, we feel you will absolutely love this modern glass corner desk.

Mayline TransAction FurnitureSecond on our list, the Mayline TransAction furniture collection.  I know we tend to highlight quite a bit of Mayline furniture on our blog, but let's be honest... this stuff is incredible! The TransAction typicals offered by Mayline provide a simple approach to modular business furniture needs. TransAction is available in a wide variety of laminate finishes and offers one of the most comprehensive collections of technology intensive furniture available. In Mayline's words this collection is sleek outside and smart inside. We couldn't agree more. TransAction includes a variety of modern conference tables and storage products to match the modular workstations available. Overall, this is one fantastic furniture line!

New Mayline Commute Series Office Chairs

Mayline Commute Chairs

Mayline has just made a revolutionary new line of office and task seating available to the public. Commute series chairs are incredibly awesome! They offer industry leading ergonomic features and modern style. In today's post we will cover several of the new Mayline Commute chair models and their unique features.

Mesh Back Mayline Commute Chair

First on the list, the C1BB Commute Chair by Mayline. This is the standard mesh back model with black base. The C1BB features an upholstered seat, durable cylinder, and height adjustable T arms. This has to be the coolest new mesh back office chair on the market! The C1BB is the most popular Commute chair available. It's priced to sell at $311.99 and includes free shipping. The 250 lb. weight capacity, synchro-tilt mechanism, tilt tension, and tilt lock, make it an excellent value for the money. 

New Mayline Commute Chair

Our favorite commute chair is this exclusive C1BB model in grade 10 flection upholstery! The custom C1BB Commute swivel chair is our favorite because of the one of a kind style. This ultra contemporary C1BB model is no different mechanically from the first C1BB chair listed in our post. However, the unique seat pattern will set you apart from the rest and provide you with a one of a kind Commute chair worth bragging about! Enjoy this stylish new office chair in a choice of 7 cool colors to meet your individual style. Our favorite is the Respite. We just love that brown on teal combination. It's extremely popular right now.

Commute Chair with Chrome Base

Next up, the C1CB Commute Chair. The C1CB offers that added touch of style and chair refinement. The attractive chrome base package is well worth the extra money in our opinion. This attractive Commute chair is available in the same selection of textile choices and features adjustable T arms for ergonomic versatility. One feature of note in regards to all the Commute chairs is the unique ability to fit most any user from small to tall by leveraging the seat slider. This cool feature is a real plus and makes the C1CB and all other Commute chairs that much more efficient.

Fully Upholstered Commute Chair

Fully upholstered models like the C1BU Commute chair and C1CU Commute chair are also available. These models offer the same variety of ergonomic features but without the breathable mesh back. Personally, we prefer the mesh back models but for those looking for the traditional functionality of an upholstered chair, these models are the solution for you. The C1BU and C1CU's only difference mechanically and cosmetically is the base color. For an up charge, you can go from black to chrome. Additionally, all Commute office chairs are available in 10 fabric grades an a virtually unlimited selection of patterns. With the quality and standard features like this it's no wonder why Mayline refers to this chair as "A simple to spec solution for today's office."
