With a new year comes new trends! Innovative furniture and seating manufacturers are always looking to start the next big movement, and in 2016, there will be plenty! This year, hot product trends are set to dominate the workplace by improving appeal and productivity at the same time. In today's post we'll highlight 5 emerging trends of 2016 and their unique benefits. Enjoy!

1.) Smart Chairs

G20 Smart Chair from Global Total Office

We did a whole post on Smart Chairs just the other day. This emerging trend makes it easy to do less and achieve more in the workplace. If you're tired of pulling levers and adjusting tension knobs to get comfortable in your office chair, this is one trend you'll surely love. Smart chairs automatically adjust to users and avoid the need for constant adjustment. Smart chairs like the G20 from Global Total Office and Living Chair from Mayline automatically react to the weight of the user and help to promote good posture at all times.

2.) Powered Furniture

Powered Lounge Sofa

Powered furniture is rapidly becoming the industry standard. With last years powered conference table movement, furniture manufacturers found success and are ready to power up just about every other area of the workplace. Powered desks and open desking configurations will put inputs at your fingertips. This means, no more looking for plugs underneath your workstation to power your devices.

Powered lounge furniture is also becoming incredibly popular. Brands like OFM have released trend setting collections like Morph and Serenity that boast USB and AC input options that will no doubt improve the guest waiting experience. Now valued office visitors can work while they wait. What could be better?

3.) Sit To Stand Tables

Sit To Stand Table

It's no secret that sitting for long periods of time is unhealthy. In fact, extended sits without breaks can actually shorten your life span. Today's top furniture manufacturers are taking this very seriously to say the least. This year, we expect to see an influx in ergonomic sit to stand tables that promote continuous movement in the workplace while simultaneously improving blood flow and reducing fatigue. Sit to stand tables are becoming the preferred choice for classroom, training, conference room, and private office environments.

4.) Modular Seating

Modular Lounge Seating

The sofa and two lounge chair seating layout will always have it's place. That being said, interior design teams and furniture manufacturers are working together to provider shoppers with the ability to create unique modular layouts built to showcase any floor plan. Modular seating collections like Citi Square and River from Global Total Office are a must consider in 2016. They are incredibly unique and versatile. They also offer intricate power options that promote guest interaction and productivity during visits.

5.) Gray Finishes

2015 was all about white in the workplace. This year, gray finishes are taking over. Collections like Medina and Sterling from Mayline have found success with gray steel and textured driftwood tones that provide a breath of fresh air when compared to the traditional cherry, maple, and mahogany tones of years passed. Gray woodgrain furniture has become incredibly popular for conference room and executive office makeover projects.

In addition to gray wood office furniture, gray leather and mesh office chairs are also dominating the market. Chairs like the Joplin and Hendrix from Woodstock Marketing are definitely worth checking out if you're looking to keep your interiors up to date with the latest trends!
