In today's post we will be covering several of the most common types of new office chairs, there function or purpose, and what makes them beneficial to end users. With so many seating options on the market it's important to educate yourself with as much buying power and product knowledge as possible. We hope that you find this post informative!

Style 1: Conference Chairs

Leather Conference Chair
It's all in the name! This form of chair is obviously designed for professional office use. Typically a  conference chair will feature loop arms that are upholstered in a leather of your choice. Common styles include both high back and mid back variations. In most cases, the larger the boardroom the fancier the conference chair. For small spaces a simple task style conference chair with mesh back is typically used. These types range from about $99 to $249 depending on brand. For more upscale conference areas a high back leather chair is often used to convey success. These range from about $299 on up. Again, these estimates completely depend on the brand you choose to go with.

Style 2: Desk Chairs

Mesh Chair

In most cases desk chairs are the most affordable style of chair made. A desk chair will typically feature a fabric or breathable mesh back design like the chair pictured above. Modern desk chairs can offer quite a few quality ergonomic features like adjustable arms, built in lumbar supports, and various tension adjustments. The average price for a new desk chair is around $99 but more upscale models are certainly available.

Style 3: Executive Chairs

Executive Chair
Executive office chairs are the definition of success and class in the workplace. A high end executive chair will feature a high back design, Italian leather upholstery, various top notch ergo features, and much more. The chair shown for example is one of the most upscale executive chairs on the market. The Concorde Presidential Chair sports a price tag of $2179. For a chair with this many features, and this high a comfort level, it's worth every penny! However, that's a bit unrealistic for the average consumer! That being said, the common conception is that executive chairs have to be extremely expensive. This is definitely not the case. Excellent executive chairs from respected manufacturers including Global Total Office can be purchased for as little as $399 in a variety of leather options. Depending on the statement you are trying to make, and the level of comfort you demand, there is definitely an executive chair on the market for you!

The Benefits Of Quality Reception Furniture and First Impressions

First impressions count, especially in business. When clients walk in to your business what do they see? Is your lounge, waiting room, or reception area classy, unique, and stylish? Or, is it outdated, cluttered, and worn. If it's been awhile since you've assessed these questions, you might consider taking a moment to identify the benefits of quality reception furniture by reading this blog post.

As previously stated, first impressions really count. When visitors enter your place of business it's extremely important that they feel welcome, and in a classy establishment worthy of their valuable time. Making this impression is based mostly on the visual appearance your space offers. If you determine your space is indeed in need of a face lift the best place to start is online.

First decide on a budget. Typically professional reception furniture sets can be found online and they are a great way to save money. In most cases black leather or basic fabric options will be the most affordable and are never a bad choice. Keeping your fabric or leather choice simple ensures a much easier match to your current decor.

Once you've decided on an office furniture budget, ask yourself what message you want to send your visitors. The best way to answer this is by determining if your business would be best suited with modern or traditionally styled furniture. Are you going for an uptown look with metal/industrial styling, or a more quaint and rustic feel that offers an at home vibe? No matter your decision it always helps to get a few opinions. Asking your employees how they see your business can really provide some great insight.

Finally we've arrived at the fun part. Shopping! At first the choices can become overwhelming. Trying to mix and match pieces is can be extremely difficult. Take a moment to call a respected furniture dealer. It can really be a life saver! They will be able to provide suggestions and ideas on manufacturers and popular collections to avoid the mix and match method.

Some popular reception furniture sets include:

Mayline Santa Cruz Lounge Furniture Set

Global Prairie Series Lounge Furniture Set

While these are just a few popular lounge furniture suggestions, hundreds more are available. With so many styles to choose from it is important to measure your space, Ensure a comfortable sit, and provide the visual impression your looking for.

In most cases a reception, lounge, lobby, or waiting room space can typically be redone for under $2000.00. This is based on a 3 piece furniture set (sofa, love seat, lounge chair) with matching tables. For spaces much larger, beam seating configurations and larger reception furniture layouts are also available. Some great suggestions include lines like the following.
