Ergonomics:
Tara Mid Back Chair
To operate a peak performance levels in the workplace, you'll need a chair that's up to the task. In today's world, it's almost as if many of the top seating manufacturers feel they can trick you into thinking a chair is comfortable by making it overly modern. Luckily, that's just not Global's style. Sure this highly respected brand offers some of the most cutting edge chairs on the market, but they are proud to offer something for everyone! The Tara was designed for high intensive tasking environments. In a nut shell, these chairs mean business. Tara chairs are available in ergonomic multi-tilter, tilter, operator, task, posture task, and coordinating guest chair models. The wide range of models, along with three back heights, will enable you to find just the right option to meet your specific needs.

Tara Guest ChairApplications:

Tara chairs are a great fit for most any office application. The user friendly features make them ideal for all day tasking and computing needs.

Price: 

If you decide to shop for office seating from the Tara collection, you'll likely run into high back, mid back, and guest models. The 3170-3 Tara high back office chair is the most expensive at $489.99 and is the best choice for upper back support.

We give the Global Total Office Tara seating collection 3.5 out of 5 stars. These comfy chairs are well rounded and provide a straight forward approach to office seating. It's great to see a seating collection out their for the shopper looking to avoid the modern design trends of today. That being said, we feel the Tara is a bit pricey when compared to Global's newer models. At this price point we'd like to see polished frame and base features, or a headrest on the high back model. In the long run, any user would be happy to work from a Tara chair. They are more comfortable than most high end executive chair models from competing brands. If you need a chair that's there to support you all day and ready the next, Tara is a great option.

The Ins and Outs of Office Design

Office Space Planning AdviceOffice makeover projects can be fun. They can be rewarding. They can be inspiring. Unfortunately, they can also be a big headache if you're not prepared. Luckily, you have us to help! In today's post we'll share the ins and outs of the design process to help you create the interiors of your dreams without the hassle. Enjoy!

Every good office design and makeover project starts with proper space planning. Don't rush out and purchase new furniture assuming it will fit correctly in your space. Take the time to measure out your interiors correctly. Be sure to take note of entry ways, power outlets, windows, and room obstructions that will affect the way your office furniture fits. Then, recheck your measurements for accuracy. Never rely on old blueprints or estimations. Obtain measurements yourself to be on the safe side. You'll be glad you did!

Once you've got the dimensions of your space, it's time to do a cost analysis to determine a reasonable budget for your project. Setting a budget will help keep you from splurging and over extending throughout the makeover process. Do a little research to get the ball rolling. Visit a local showroom, browse for furniture online, and get a good idea of what you'll be comfortable spending. Don't forget to account for the little things like room accents and ergonomic accessories. They will make a big difference in appeal and functionality.

We know you're eager to get out and shop for new furniture, but you need to get a little inspiration before you do! Start by creating a design folder to house ideas for your space. Take pics at your local furniture showroom and visit social sharing sites like Pinterest. You can also visit surrounding businesses to network while you get inspiration. Consider researching the latest office design trends to ensure your space is up to date. Once inspired, select a theme for your project. This year modern, industrial, retro, and contemporary looks are all very popular.

You've waited long enough, it's time to start shopping! We recommend making your furniture purchases online. As of now, online shoppers are not required to pay out of state sales tax on transactions. If you're purchasing a new executive desk configuration, the tax alone can be hundreds of dollars. Shopping online will help you maximize your budget over the long haul of your project. To ensure you get the best value, shop on comparison engines like Google Shopping. Here you'll be able to sort products by brand and price from a wide range of dealers. Find a quality furniture provider with good reviews. Before checking out online, be sure to call your dealer directly. As about free shipping specials, coupons, bulk discount pricing, and any monthly sales promotions they may be running. You'll be surprised just how much money one phone call can save you.

Once you've purchase your new furniture, you'll want to stay in close contact with your dealer. Be sure to call 2 days after your order to confirm your order has been processed. During your call, ask about an expected ship date and schedule delivery if possible. One the ship date provided by your dealer, call again to obtain tracking information. This information should be provided without asking, but it's always best to be on the safe side.

Most in stock furniture ships within 2 business days of order. Transit times vary based on carries. That being said, you can likely expect your products to arrive about 5 to 7 business days after order. When your furniture ships out, you'll want to start prepping your space. Clear out old furniture, patch walls, paint, and thoroughly clean. Tackling these simple jobs now will help ensure a smooth transition between work environments.

On the day your furniture arrives, create a staging area to rest furniture before it's assembled. Avoid bringing all products into your office space. This will make for a cluttered and overly crowded installation process that's sure to bring headaches. Before your start breaking into boxes, pull out the shipping documentation just in case you need it later.

When you start the assembly and installation process, you'll want to have basic screwdrivers, sockets, pliers, and cordless drills on hand. For safety reasons, keep a first aid kit handy. As desks and office seating can be quite heavy when packaged, be sure to have a couple helpers available to assist in the process. The best way to handle installation is slow and steady. Follow the instructions, take your time, and take breaks to ensure you don't get frustrated. If you feel like installation and assembly is too much to handle, don't sweat it! Call the professionals about 2 weeks before your furniture arrives to obtain pricing. You'll be able to schedule to have products shipped directly to the installer to avoid receiving products at your place of business.

At the end of the installation process, you'll be left with lots of packaging materials and debris. Plan accordingly! Be ready to break down boxes and clean up lots of bubble wrap. Having trash bags on hand is always a good idea. Once you'e removed all the fodder, take pics of your new interior. Share your success online to help others. You'll certainly get lots of compliments and ideas on how to further improve your space.

Avoiding The Top 6 Office Makeover Mishaps

Avoiding Office Makeover MishapsThere's nothing worse than an office makeover mishap! To avoid falling prey to a design disaster, you'll need to properly plan and pay close attention to the advice in today's post. Today we'll share with you the most common makeover mistakes encountered by businesses and how to avoid them effectively.

1.) Didn't Properly Measure

A quality makeover starts with accurate space planning. Start by obtaining the perimeter dimensions of your space. Be sure to take note of power outlets, entry ways, windows, and load bearing members that will affect the way furniture fits. Once you've got your dimensions, double check them! Never, ever, ever, assume furniture will fit without measuring. This is a recipe for disaster that can be easily avoided.

2.) Forgot To Ask The Group

There's a fine line between getting group input and ending up with too many chickens in the hen house! To keep things on the safe side, do preliminary work on your own. Come up with a series of no more than three options per area. If you're taking on private office interiors, provide your coworkers with three full service collections to choose from that include the desk configurations, tables, and storage components needed to complete the areas in questions. On the flip side, you don't want to select products without getting group input. This is sure to leave someone feeling left out and unhappy. Remember, some input is good. Too much can be overwhelming!

3.) Expected Finishes To Match

Mix matching furniture from various brands is dangerous! While two manufacturers may call a finish cherry, it doesn't mean they are exactly the same. Schedule your project far enough in advance to obtain multiple finish samples for the furniture you're considering purchasing. In most cases, fabric and finish samples can be to you in about a week. If you don't have the time to wait for samples, be on the safe side and purchase your office seating and furniture from the same brand. If you have any questions about finishes matching, call your dealer of choice. In the long run, it never hurts to ask.

4.) Didn't Get Tracking Information

Whether you purchase furniture online or from a local dealer, you need to obtain tracking information as soon as possible. Don't delay this important step and end up with thousands of dollars worth of new furniture sitting in your lobby! Tracking information will provide you with the valuable window needed to get your space ready. Let's say you've ordered a new conference table and chairs for your business. If you obtain your tracking number, you'll know exactly how long you have to clear out old furniture from your space, patch walls, paint, and accessorize before your new products arrive. You'll also know when to staff extra workers to help with assembly.

5.) Unprepared For Installation

In most cases, office furniture installation can be handled effectively with 2 to 4 people. That being said, contact your dealer before products arrive to inquire about installation services. They'll typically be able to share tips, demo videos, and advice that will help you tackle the process. In addition, if you feel like installation is a bit much for your business to handle internally, your dealer will be able to provide professional resources in your area. Professional installation should be quoted for any project consisting of 3 or more areas. Basic executive desk configurations, conference room tables, and reception desks take around an hour to put together. Prepare accordingly! You'll also want to have a staging area clearly defined to place furniture when it arrives. Having basic tools on hand is also a must. Last but not least, furniture is packed extremely well. There will be debris! Be sure to have plenty of trash bags and dumpster space available before you begin.

6.) Went Over Budget

Don't wait until your project is complete to realize you've gone over budget. Work with your team from day one to determine how much you can spend without over extending. Create an excel spreadsheet to track purchases during the process. This will help you keep a close eye on your budget. If you want to keep it simple, provider your dealer with an idea of how much you're looking to spend. They'll be happy to help you select the best products in your price range. Like with most office makeover mishaps, budget issues typically result from assuming and improper planning. Don't fall into this group!
