Mayline Luminary Furniture Review

Mayline produces high quality office furniture. This is a pretty common fact! However, one line that is often over looked is the Luminary collection. Mayline Luminary furniture provides the perfect solution to both home and business furniture needs. This line of premier casegoods furniture includes a variety of executive desk configurations, conference tables, and reception desks with a traditional and simplistic style sure to impress even the harshest of critics. In today's post we will review several Luminary series items that we absolutely love!

Table Desk

We chose to start off with the Luminary LTD72 veneer table desk as it's one of the most versatile and commonly used pieces of Luminary furniture available. This stylish wood executive desk is perfect for home use but definitely works well in upscale business atmospheres as well. The LTD72 Luminary desk is the perfect size at 72"W x 36"D x 29"H. It boasts an affordable price of only $515.99 and is typically in stock for quick shipment. Just to clarify... we absolutely love this desk!

Reception Desk

Next up, the RS7278D Luminary Reception Desk. Even at first glance it's hard to miss the unique paneled front and stunning finish of this professional reception furniture solution. The RS7278D reception station is available in both cherry and maple veneers and is also available with an optional glass transaction top for added appeal. We had the chance to install the RS7278D station recently with the glass top and must say... it's definitely worth the extra money as it really pulls the whole station together. The standard RS7278D station sells for $1919.99 and is a real value.

U Shaped Executive Desk

Third on the list, the EUB3 Luminary executive desk. This high end U shaped executive desk is a no frills approach to traditional business furniture, and to be honest... that's why we love it! This simple yet elegant desking configuration offers ample storage and usable desk space. The EUB3 station includes everything you need to outfit and create a fully functional executive workspace on a budget.

Wood Conference Table

Last but not least the CT3672 Luminary Conference Table. If you're in the market for a professional 6' conference table with traditional style, the CT3672 is the choice for you. This attractive line of affordable boardroom table options is available with plenty of matching furniture to enhance your space. With a price of $661.99 it's hard not to love the CT3672!

Ergonomics and You - The Benefits of Ergonomic Furniture in the Workplace

Ergonomic Workstation

The purchase of office furniture is an important business investment for any company. Knowing the benefits of the furniture you're purchasing is absolutely essential. For these reasons, we will discuss the benefits of new ergonomic furniture in the workplace and how to improve your day to day efficiency through the utilization of current ergo products.

Mobile Ergonomic Computer Station

In a nut shell, ergonomics is the applied science of equipment design with the intention of maximizing productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort. Ergonomic products range from height adjustable tables, workstations, and modern office chair solutions designed to much less expensive items like ergonomic monitor arms, articulating keyboard trays, and footrests. Regardless of what products you choose to utilize in your workplace, it's important to know the benefits of each and how to operate them properly. Simply buying every ergo product on the market won't make you an efficient employee. However, taking the time to understand the benefits of each product and how to make them work for you will!

Ergonomic PAC Station

To first understand the benefits of ergonomic furniture you must first understand your body and the areas needing the most support. Commonly, these areas include the eyes, back, wrists, and feet. As these areas are commonly the most fatigued during the work day, it's no wonder why so many fantastic ergonomic products have been created to provide relief to these areas. One great tip to consider is to meet with you physician for a check up. Most doctors are ergonomic gurus who will gladly share with you products they are currently utilizing while explaining the benefits they have personally received from said items.

Ergonomic Computer Stations

Taking your research one step further, it's important to consider the layout of your workspace. Working with designer might enhance the look of your office but devalue the efficiency you are able to achieve with your space. It's vital to outfit your space in the best way possible to maximize your working potential. An excellent point to consider is how many times you currently have to get up during the day for simple tasks like printing and filing. If it's more than 5 or 6 times per day you are currently working in non-ergo workspace. This being the case, you might consider looking into re designing your office, even if it's with your current furniture.

Ergonomic Cubicles

If you determine that an office makeover is necessary, several quality ergonomic furniture resources are available at your disposal. Manufacturers like ESI Ergonomic Solutions, Symmetry, Systematix, Ergonomic Concepts, and Mayline provide excellent solutions to name a few. Additionally, you will want to know which of these manufacturers product lines are most commonly used in ergonomic work spaces. These lines and collections include VariTask tables by Mayline, ergonomic workstation configurations by ESI, Symmetry monitor arms, and Systematix keyboard trays. As for affordable ergonomic seating manufacturers there are just too many to list. Our favorite however, is Global Total Office!

Ergonomic Executive Office

So, you've designed your office with ergonomics in mind. What benefits should you expect? If properly outfitted out you should have all the essentials at your finger tips. Your CPU, printer, articulating keyboard tray, and computer monitor will all be ergo-fied. Your desk is more than likely height adjustable and features a boomerang type shape. You are enjoying a properly lit office, adequate office storage products, and a fully functional office chair designed with you back type in mind.

The 3 Ergonomic Office Accessories Your Business Has To Have

We all know how important the use of ergonomic products are in the workplace. What you might not know is what products give you the biggest bang for your buck. For that reason we've decided to share with you the 3 hottest ergonomic office accessories on the market. If you are looking to improve the functionality of your business, these products are truly must haves!

Ergonomic Monitor Arms

First and foremost, we present the ergonomic monitor arm! Ergonomic and articulating monitor arms provide additional workspace and versatility at home or in the office. Typically arms will attach to a worksurface via a clamp mount or grommet mount. The top manufacturers of ergonomic monitor arms include ESI Ergonomic Products, Systematix, and Symmetry. Our personal favorite, ESI monitor arms, are an affordable solution to ergonomic office needs. Most modern businesses are utilizing ergo arms in 2, 3, and 4 screen variations. However, 8 screen models are also available for the tech savvy corporations.

Keyboard Trays

Next up, ergonomic keyboard trays. Often overlooked, keyboard trays have become an afterthought of most furniture and design projects. This is very unfortunate as an articulating keyboard tray might be the most valuable and effective ergonomic accessory in the workplace. A well designed keyboard tray will take pressure off the wrists, improve posture, and increase you WPM. If you are still using your keyboard on top of your workspace, consider an articulating platform from a respected ergonomic products manufacturer and regain that usable workspace!

CPU Holders

Last but not least, ergonomic CPU holders. This versatile piece of office equipment provides a number of useful features. CPU holders provide mobility to your power source. They allow you to keep the most valuable part of your computer system off the ground for easy access and protection from water, debris, and all those potato chip crumbs that have accumulated from years of office messiness. The average price of a quality CPU holder is around $70, a real value considering they can save your computer from years of abuse!

When you walk into a boardroom, executive office, or respected place of business, you notice the decor. You typically see a professionally decorated space with high end office furniture and an effective layout for conducting meetings and business efficiently. The importance of office decor and quality of furnishings can not be underestimated. In today's post we will cover some excellent shopping tips to help achieve this impression on a budget!

Conveying confidence to your guests and customers ranks right up there with customer service. Nobody wants to welcome visitors into a space that features mismatched, dated, and poor quality furnishings that create an unprofessional, first impression. To be honest, places like this commonly suggest off site locations to avoid this! Not to fear, an excellent first impression can be easily attained by outfitting your business with quality office furniture on a budget.

Tip 1: Set a Budget

Before the process of shopping and space planning can even begin, it's important to identify a budget you can stick too. Be honest with yourself and don't over extend. Consider the cost vs. reward of your project and plan accordingly. The average professional executive office suite costs around $1500.00. With this budget, you should be able to purchase a quality desk configuration, new chair, and matching storage products for your business. There are definitely more and less expensive avenues to take, however this base figure is a good place to start.

Tip 2: Design Blogs Provide Inspiration

Using an interior designer is a luxury that most on a small budget can't afford. However, that's not to say the information you would get from a designer is not already available online! By searching the web for space planning and design tips, along with quality product recommendations, you can really benefit. Often, a good design blog will provide you with the inspiration needed to decide on a style or theme of your office decor. Even if it's just for pictures, utilizing the hundreds of good design blogs online will help you outfit your space.

Tip 3: Visit a Showroom

By visiting a showroom you will have the opportunity to explore products form a variety of top manufactures and find a brand that fits your individual needs. Taking this tip a step further, if you have the opportunity to visit an office products convention like NeoCon, the knowledge obtained in your quest for new furniture will be priceless.

Tip 4: Understanding Ergonomics

Knowing your body and what ergonomic features you require to work at your highest level of productivity should play a large role in the way your space is designed, along with what brand of office furniture you choose. Seeing as ergonomics is defined as the study of peoples efficiency in the working environment, taking the time to review some of the top ergonomic furniture brands and their benefits can save you money. Often it's thought that just using an expensive chair will get the job done. This couldn't be further from the truth. Accessories like ergonomic monitor arms, articulating keyboard trays, and height adjustable workstations are just as important. Having the nicest furniture and seating in the world isn't worth much if you are not using it properly.

Tip 5: Manufacturer Recommendations

When shopping for high end home and business furniture, it's nice to know some of the industry leading manufacturers. For that reason, tip 4 will take care of this crucial need! Our favorite brands are: Mayline Furniture, Global Total Office, Cherryman Industries, and DMI. These manufacturers offer extremely well made products that won't let you down. All of these companies provide a variety of different matching furniture collections to meet any style and budget. Regardless of the space your decorating, we highly recommend utilizing one of these well respected brands.

Tip 6: Shop Online and Save

If you take our advice and visit a showroom you are almost certainly guaranteed to fall in love with a particular line of office furniture. Don't get hasty! The value of comparison shopping cannot be underestimated. No matter what, do not let yourself make an impulse purchase! Take literature and knowledge you are now armed with back home start shopping online. You'll be glad you did! Using an online office furniture provider can save you hundreds and even thousands compared to local furniture providers. For one, if you buy from an online furniture dealer that is out of state you can avoid the sales tax. You can typically find a dealer that won't charge for delivery like local companies, and who will also be able to provide individual coupons and bulk discounts for your purchase. Additionally, you will be able to shop companies that specialize in your area of need. For example, if you are looking for new conference room furniture, it's a nice to be able to rely on a dealer that has expertise in this unique furniture realm.

Tip 7: Review Your Dealer

So you've visited a showroom, found a line, shopped around, and are ready to make your purchase. Wait! Take a few minutes and search for company reviews on the dealer you've decided to go with. You can never be too safe when shopping online, and just because one company offers the lowest price, does not mean they offer good service. Especially when price differences are minimal, choosing a company with quality reviews will ensure a pleasant shopping and shipping experience when handling the purchasing and logistics of  your new office furniture.

Tip 8: Prepare You Space

Once you've purchased your new office furniture it's time to prepare your space. Don't get caught with the delivery truck out front and an office full of old furniture! Schedule a 24 hour call ahead with your dealers and prepare your office accordingly. Make sure to save your important files and documents and have them ready to be indexed properly in your new furniture. Identify a clear path to your office to eliminate confusion during installation and product movement.

Tip 9: Recapturing Funds from Used Furniture

Once your new furniture is installed and looking beautiful, don't forget that your old furniture DOES still have some value. Finding a used furniture dealer in your area will definitely help you to recapture some of your expenses. If you have the time, listing your old furniture on a site like Craigslist will definitely yield higher rewards. Whatever you do, avoid letting your old products sit in your warehouse or garage for years. The value will not increase. Get the biggest bang for your buck by taking quality pictures as soon as possible. Sell the old products, and treat the coworker that helped with the furniture install to lunch. He or she deserves it ;0)
