It seems gray has become the new black! This year gray office chairs were the preferred choice of interior design teams and consumers alike. Popular gray office chair solutions like the Joplin and Hendrix series chairs from Woodstock Marketing were incredibly successful in 2014. Much like black, gray upholstery provides a neutral tone that matches nearly any wood or metal finish to perfection. Those not looking to go the traditional route of black leather seating found that gray chairs added the same classy feel without the overly dark and gloomy feel of black in the workplace.

Industrial Furniture
Transaction Series Open Desking

The industrial look was huge in 2014. The blending of metal components into desking configurations and tables alike provides a commercial feel that designers love. Much like with the stainless steel appliance movement in the kitchen, the popularity of silver metal office furniture is growing at a very rapid rate. Brands like Mayline, Cherryman Industries, Global Total Office, and OFM have all expanded there repertoire of products to include metal accented solutions for both professional and home applications.

This vibrant tone is definitely a great way to make any work environment stand apart from the competition. From lime green office chairs to lime green painted accent walls, this popular color was the number one choice of 2014.  As a result, brands like Mayline and Cherryman have added a variety of cool lime green upholstery options for office chairs and reception benching alike. Look for this trend to stay hot in the months to come, but as with all color trends... the lime green movement will eventually shift to the next hot color!
