Mayline Medina Office Furniture ReviewIn just a few short years, the Mayline Medina office furniture collection has cemented itself as one of the hottest lines of all time. The designer desks, tables, reception stations, and storage solutions from this popular collection are perfect for modern remodeling projects. Today on the OFD blog we'll take an in-depth look at Medina's versatile layouts, finish options, and components. Prepare to be impressed!

If you're looking to avoid piecing a furniture configuration together, a Medina typical is the way to go. Trendy stations like the MNT45H2 have everything you need to craft a truly elite executive interior. While an average U shaped desk will get the job done, Medina layouts like the MNT45H2 go the extra mile by providing users with height adjustable sit to stand bridges that promote continuous movement in the workplace. With more than 30 layouts to choose from, finding the perfect workstation is easier than ever.

Medina Conference TableWe can't say enough good things about the Conference Tables available from the Mayline Medina collection. These power ready tables are built to impress guests and streamline meeting activities. If you're tired of running extension chords across your boardroom to host presentations, check out a Medina table. With a variety of sizes to choose from, meeting your individual space requirements is a breeze. Popular Mayline Medina series tables like the MNC8 are available starting at just $508.99 and provide an exceptional combination of value and style. Power modules will run you an extra $235.00 each.

Mayline Medina Reception DeskWith a Medina series reception desk you'll be ready, willing, and able to make a lasting impression on guests the minute they step foot into your business. Medina reception desks are available in a choice of rectangular and L shaped variations. These stations boast spacious 87 1/4" wide fronts accented by glass transaction counters and silver trim. With the added return on models like the MNRSLBF you'll have even more operating space to utilize. On the downside, if you're dealing with minimal square footage in your reception area, these welcoming stations probably won't fit. Be sure to measure first!

Mayline Medina Storage CabinetWe say it all the time; No office interior is complete without the right combination of storage products needed to stay well organized and efficient. Mayline fully understands this! They've introduced a wide range of mobile desk pedestals that can be slid underneath work surfaces when not in use, along with glass accented hutch units, bookcases, and executive low wall cabinets that will enhance decor and organizing potential. Popular Medina office organizing products like the MVLC can be used effectively in conference, training, reception, and executive office areas.

While other manufacturers scramble to keep up with the latest trends, Mayline is hard at work setting new ones in motion with lines like Medina.

Mayline Medina Office Furniture RatingAfter a careful and in-depth review, we feel giving Medina anything other than a 5 out of 5 star rating would be a crime. This collection has everything you need for just about any interior imaginable. From trend setting finish options to advanced power modules, Mayline thought of everything with Medina. In terms of value and style, you'll be hard pressed to find better for your home and business interiors in 2017 and beyond.

Office Epidemics: Confined Interiors

With a confined office interior, it's hard to be productive. You're likely feeling cramped and limited on operating space. Today on the blog we'll teach you how to avoid this office epidemic. From hot new open concept furnishings to unique storage products for persona organizing, we'll have you working smart and effective in no time. Enjoy!

Confined Office InteriorIf you feel like your office walls are starting to close in on you, it's time to make a change. It's always a good idea to start with a thorough cleaning. Purge those old file cabinet drawers effectively and rid your space of documents that are no longer necessary. With open drawer space, you'll be able to determine how much room you have left for future growth.

You'll also want to get your pens, post its, and regularly used stationary items properly organized. There's a lot of office hacks out there that provide handy ways of tackling this task efficiently. If you're looking to free up additional desk space taken up by stationary organizers, consider transitioning them into zip lock bags and putting them in drawers. If you need a little extra drawer space, you might consider decorating a few cool mason jars and organizing your stationary items on top of your desk. The options are really limitless!

Overcrowded Office InteriorYour interior will start to feel confined if the area and space underneath your desk isn't put to good use. All too often we see interiors with boxes underneath the desk, as well as a ton of debris from snacking. Create as much knee space as possible by removing and cleaning up all the fodder you can. You might also consider integrating a retractable CPU mount that allows your computers power source to be slid out of the way when not in use.

When all else fails, it's time to consider a remodel. It's quite possible you've simply outgrown your current office furniture configuration. We highly recommend taking pictures of your interior, along with dimensions. Visit a local design team in your area to discuss your personal workspace needs. They'll be happy to provide you with ideas on how to get the most out of your valuable square footage.

This year, it's all about open concept office interiors built for productivity. The best part about an open concept interior, is that it will do the complete opposite of confine you. To create an open concept environment, you'll need to focus on selecting the proper components for your space. It all starts with the collection. We've provided a few resources below to help.

Open Concept Office InteriorPopular Open Concept Furniture Collections:
  • e5 by Mayline
  • TransAction by Mayline
  • Zira by Global Total Office
  • Princeton by Global Total Office
Once you've settled on a collection that suits your personal style, it's time to enlist the help of the pros. They'll be able to help you select components that properly fit within the parameter of your interior. 

Once you've removed your old furniture, give those walls a fresh coat of paint. It's best to do this before new items arrive. Rest assured it's never fun to paint around fancy new furnishings. Painting your walls a light, bright, and trendy color will make it feel less confined and far more welcoming. This year, coastal tones like light grays, blues, and greens have been super popular.

Open Concept WorkspaceLast but not least, it's time to maximize your office storage and organizing potential. Sure a couple of file cabinets will do the trick, but they take up a ton of valuable floor space. Make your interior feel more open and less confined by integrating a wall mount hutch unit that can be rested atop your desk. Mounting a hutch will provide you with a ton of storage space. 

In addition, you might want to consider integrating a couple of file pedestals on wheels that can be slid underneath your work surfaces when not in use. Remember, it's all about efficiency! When push comes to shove and you begin to feel confined, don't procrastinate. Analyze your workspace, purge what you can, and strive for healthy operating!

Today we'll teach you how to keep it classy with cool products that are guaranteed to earn your interior the compliments it deserves. From tufted office chairs to unique lighting fixtures, the design tips and product suggestions provided here will have you on your way to a one of a kind vintage workspace.

Tufted Leather Office ChairTufted leather office chairs offer a traditional look that's hard to beat. While an original tufted chair will cost you well over a thousand dollars, brands like Flash Furniture offer authentic replicas that won't break the budget. Popular models like the CI-360-BY-GG are available for literally half the price. This high back tufted leather office chair is available in a choice of black and burgundy color options that are perfectly complimented by brass nailhead trim and mahogany wood bases.

Vintage Wood Veneer Office Furniture FinishRustic woods offer classic appeal that will help you create old school vibes. When going vintage, you can't go wrong with cherry and mahogany veneers. Lucky for you, there's lot's of awesome collections to consider. We particularly love the Mayline Sorrento line.

Traditional Office FurnitureIn addition to the Sorrento collection, you'll also want to check out the Emerald collection from Cherryman Industries. With an array of vintage style writing desks and matching storage components, Emerald furnishings are a cut above the rest.

Vintage Poster for Retro OfficeMetal wall art should be used to effectively contribute to your vintage design theme. As the vintage look is super popular, you'll likely be able to find a wide range of products to choose from at your local home furniture store. Unique scones that hold candles are a must consider.

In addition to metal wall art, you can mount 60's concert posters on your office walls in cool frames to show a little bit of your personal style. Pick out a cool retro frame to accent a historic concert poster from your past. Having trouble finding old posters? Take your search to eBay. If originals are too expensive, prints are likely available to help you maximize your remodeling budget.

Retro Lighting Fixtures for OfficeNot a big music fan? No problem! You can skip the concert posters and substitute them with old blue prints and architectural art. If you can find black and white portraits, they work great too!

Last but certainly not least, round out your vintage inspired office interior by replacing those modern lighting fixtures with a little something for period correct. The best place find retro lamps and lighting fixtures is the flea market. If you don't have a flea market, check out a swap meet or a few local antique stores.
