Office Furniture Trends 2019

SecondHand Office Furniture

Scandinavian style has driven clothing, lifestyle, food and interior design trends for several years, so if we are keen to understand the office furniture trends for 2019, the Stockholm Furniture Fair is a great place to start.

Held in the Swedish capital in February, there were two leading factors which influenced office furniture design; privacy and well-being. If you have a passion for bringing colour into the workplace, the trend for 2019 is inspired by autumn; think deep red and rusty orange.

Considering Privacy in Office Furniture Design

Open plan offices have modernised workplace interiors and encouraged greater inter-departmental collaboration, but there is a compromise. It can be incredibly difficult to remain focused when there are endless distractions. If you can’t find a quiet space to take a call or concentrate on a task, it can become frustrating and stressful.

Rather than rebuilding walls, designers are making good use of noise reducing panels, desk dividers, hooded chairs and pods. These items of office furniture all help to manage the acoustics and create separate spaces where people can take more control over their environment. They enable the team to operate productively, without losing the option of collective working.

When considering design trends, you might instantly assume that any options are going to be beyond your budget. If you are willing to consider quality second-hand office furniture, you can provide your workers with what they need without breaking the bank.

Recycled Business Furniture has an extensive stock of used office chairs and this includes pre-owned acoustic seating. All items have been thoroughly checked to ensure that they are in great condition. We’re talking top brands, in great condition, for the same price as cheap office chairs. We also hold a selection of second-hand desk-dividing screens in a variety of colours.

The Role of Sit-stand desks and Ergonomic Chairs Workplace Well-being

Remaining in one position throughout the day is detrimental to our health. We need to move in order to remain both physically and mentally healthy. Office furniture design is now influenced by a growing awareness of the benefits of at least being able to regularly change position. These include increased productivity and reduced absence.

Adjustable Sit-stand desks, along with ergonomic chairs and stools, provide the option to shift position through the day. This combination of office furniture can encourage your team out of their seats for an extra hour or two every day, which is all it takes to reduce the health risks.

The Recycled Business Furniture showroom is stocked with fully operational used Sit-stand desks, along with second-hand task chairs from top brands including Herman Miller, Vitra and Steelcase. You are welcome to visit us in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire and try them out for size and comfort.
