Office Design 101: Keep It Contemporary In 2016

Modern and contemporary office furniture will dominate the market yet again in 2016. This year, brands like Mayline, Global Total Office, and OFM will all raise the bar with trend setting desk collections, reception stations, conference tables, and professional seating solutions. In today's post we'll highlight ways to keep your space up to date with the latest trends and the products you'll need to get the job done right. Enjoy!

First things first, you'll need to start your contemporary office makeover project off with a great chair. We highly recommend selecting a "smart chair" from a brand like Global Total Office. Smart chairs provide excellent comfort without the need for constant lever pulling and tension knob adjusting. High tech smart chairs like the 6671-2 Vion chair from Global Total Office will take office comfort to the next level. This cutting edge chair articulates like a human spine and allows the chair back to reshape itself to mimic any user's profile. The Vion automatically responds to body movements and sitting positions to provide you with the comfort you need, when you need it. Other contemporary smart chairs like Global's G20 should also be considered in 2016. Both models are available in a wide range of cool mesh and seat color combinations.

Once you've selected the perfect contemporary office chair for your space, it's time to build a workstation around it. This year, brands like Mayline will reign supreme with innovative desk collections like Sterling and Medina. These full service lines offer a variety of U shaped desks, corner desks, L shaped desks, and modular executive workstations that will earn your interior the compliments it deserves. Medina and Sterling desk configurations also come equipped with the storage components needed to help keep you well organized. Both Sterling and Medina are available in trend setting finish options like Gray Steel and Textured Driftwood.

Design Tip:

Go with gray in 2016! Gray wood grain furniture and gray leather office chairs are rapidly becoming the preferred choice of interior design teams and shoppers looking to craft high end contemporary interiors.

Space Planning Tip:

Before selecting a contemporary office desk for your work space, be sure to obtain accurate dimensions of your interior. Take note of entry ways, windows, and power outlets that will affect your furniture layout.

With a smart chair and trend setting desk configuration, you're space will be nearly complete! To take you interior to the next level, you'll need to integrate a couple of key ergonomic office accessories to help keep you productive.

Start with an articulating sit to stand keyboard tray from a brand like Symmetry Office. A sit to stand keyboard tray will help you compute at correct angles to reduce the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome. You'll also be encouraging continuous movement and improving blood flow throughout the day when switching from sitting to standing positions.

You'll also want to boost ergonomic efficiency and contemporary appeal with the addition of a dual screen monitor arm. A dual monitor mount will help increase the rate at which you compute by decreasing the amount of time you spend clicking between tabs. A dual monitor arm will also provide you with a wide range of versatile adjustments that will no doubt come in handy during those busy days in the office.

Last but certainly not least, no contemporary office space can be truly complete without the addition of a cool room accents. Before your room arrives, consider painting your space. Once your furniture is installed, get a feel for your new furniture configuration. Consider the addition of a unique area rug, wall art, and lighting fixtures to help your space stand out from the competition.

Leave not doubt, contemporary interiors will earn high marks in 2016. To take your space to the next level, you'll need to get inspired. Browse social sharing sites like Pinterest and Instagram for cool interiors. You'll be rewarded with plenty of great ideas to kick your appeal into high gear.
