Protect the Environment with Recycled Business Furniture

Protect the Environment with Recycled Business Furniture

Environmental protestors causing disruption in the capital and children walking out of school to protest; it is clear that concerns are growing about our global impact.

The challenge may seem insurmountable, but we can all make changes to collectively make a difference. Recycled Business Furniture is playing a part in saving perfectly good used office furniture from ending up in landfill. The question is would you consider buying high-quality, used office desks, chairs and reception seating for your next office refit?

What Puts People Off Buying Second-Hand Office Furniture?

We all love to grab a bargain, but there is still this sense that used items are going to be inferior. The truth is, buying second-hand office furniture can make it affordable to purchase leading brands that may otherwise be out of your financial reach.

Top quality goods are expertly designed to optimise comfort and they are built to last. A second-hand ergonomic chair may have twice the lifespan of a new, cheap model. Recycled Business Furniture only selects used office desks, chairs and associated items if they are in mint condition.

We check that they are fully functional and give them a good clean before they reach our showroom. In many cases, you would never know that they were not brand new – come and see for yourself!

Stylish Collection of Used Office Furniture

If you have an image in your head of a mismatched workplace; a muddle of different styles, shapes and colours, you can dismiss that idea.

In many cases, Recycled Business Furniture will have multiple stock of the same item. In used office chairs alone, we could equip your workplace with:

  • Ergonomic Task Chairs from leading brands
  • Canteen Stalls in a choice of colours and designs
  • Reception Seating
  • Chairs for your meeting and break-out rooms
  • Stackable chairs for conferences and events

We may be able to offer items that perfectly complement your brand image and colours.

You can view a selection of our latest stock online. Alternatively, you are welcome to visit our Buckinghamshire used office furniture showroom. Located in High Wycombe, we just a short drive from London, Slough and Reading. We are open from 9am until 5pm Monday to Friday and free parking is available right outside the door.

Environmental Awareness Drives Second-hand Purchasing

As David Attenborough provides another televised warning about our environmental impact, it seems that interest in pre-owned goods is on the rise.

A survey by Business Waste identified that 45% of consumers were open to the idea of buying second-hand clothes, even if they hadn’t yet made a purchase. This shows a shift in perception that will hopefully be reflected in all consumer purchasing. We should be open to the reuse of high-quality items that help to save money and the environment.

Whether you work from a home study or are growing a sizable enterprise, take a look and see if Recycled Business Furniture can help you be a little greener. If you have any questions, please get in touch on 01494 801066.

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.
