Life In The Cube: Maximizing Space and Comfort

Life in a cubicle can be tough. It can also be quite enjoyable if you know how to maximize your space and comfort. That's where we come in! Today on the Office Furniture Deals blog we'll be highlighting the tips and products needed to do just that. From ultra cool task chairs to user friendly ergonomic accessories, we'll have you at your best in no time. Enjoy!

iDesk Eon ChairOffice comfort starts with the chair! That being said, you don't want to select a bulky overstuffed executive style chair for everyday cubicle operating. You need a space saving task chair that doesn't lack in terms of comfort. Going with a modern ergonomic mesh chair like the Eon from iDesk is just plain smart. It offers a really cool look to compliment your workspace, along with an abundance of independently adjustable ergonomic attributes that are super easy to use. At just $245.00, the Eon is also one of the best chair buys on the market in 2017.

Novello ChairIn addition to the Eon chair from iDesk. We also highly recommend the Novello series 6400 chair from Global Total Office. It's sleek European vibe will definitely help you maximize your cubicle operating area. This stylish new office chair designed by Alessandro Piretti features an easy to clean poly back and well padded waterfall style seat that will relieve knee pressure while improving blood flow. The Novello is durable, efficient, and down right comfortable. You simply can't go wrong with Global's newest chair!

Symmetry Office Allure Screen MountIn the cubicle, work surface space is always at a premium. That being said, your computer screen takes up a ton of it. You should highly consider making the switch to an articulating monitor mount in 2017. The factory base on your computer screen offers little in terms of adjustment capabilities. An ergonomically correct screen mount like the Allure 1 from Symmetry Office will allow you to raise your screen to eye level. This ensures healthy computing and minimizes the neck strain associated with looking down at your screens to type. With its clamp on pole mounting system, you'll free up an abundance of usable space you never knew you had.

ESI Ergorise StationIt's no secret that sit to stand operating is the latest ergonomic craze. That being said, you probably don't have the workspace to devote to a desktop riser. Have no fear, ESI has you covered. Their all new Ergorise station is an awesome option for cubicle dwellers. With this sit to stand desktop attachment you'll be able to utilize 2 screens to save time computing. Most importantly, you'll be able to quickly switch from sitting to standing positions to reduce fatigue, pain, and strain throughout the work day.

Sit To Stand Keyboard TrayTo further increase your amount of usable desk surface area, consider making the switch to an ergonomic keyboard tray. Allowing your keyboard tray to take up approximately 30% of your usable surface space is just plain silly. Move that bad boy underneath your desk surface with a retractable mount that allows it to be slid out of the way when not in use. There's no shortage of options on the market, but we personally prefer units like the Balance 3 from Symmetry. With this keyboard tray you'll also be able to switch to stand up operating positions in a flash!

Retractable CPU HolderLast but certainly not least, you should also strive to maximize the space underneath your desk. Have you ever banged your knees on the CPU when sliding your office chair up to your workstation to compute? You're not alone. This office operating epidemic can be quickly solved with the integration of a retractable CPU mount from brands like ESI, Symmetry Office, and Systematix. With your CPU mounted up high on retractable glides, you'll also be able to avoid those pesky trips underneath your cubicle desk to route wires and simply power up your computer. The best part is, CPU holders only cost around a hundred bucks. You'll protecting your digital files from theft and water damage while simultaneously increasing knee space and boosting operational functionality. What a great product for the modern cubicle worker!

Ergonomic Tips: Posture Comes First!

Office Chair Posture
You can have the most expensive, high end, fancy office chair on the planet. But if you don't learn to master it's features to operate healthy and with good posture, the odds are you won't achieve the level of comfort you desire to make it through those tough days at the office. That's where we come in! Today on the Office Furniture Deals blog we'll be highlighting the sitting tips and posture advice needed to

Is sitting with good posture REALLY that important? In a word, absolutely! Believe it or not, some find that sitting with good posture feels unnatural. This is because bad habits have been set in place for far too long. You have to recondition your office chair operating mindset from the ground up.

Ergonomic Office TipsIt all starts with proper feet placement. When seated in your swivel chair you can't rely on the chair base as a foot rest. This perching technique restricts blood flow that leads to fatigue and cramping. While it may feel comfortable and natural because you're used to it, it's hurting you. As an alternative, commit to keeping your feet placed flat on the ground and facing forward. It's ergonomically correct.

Next, you'll want to focus on the angle at which you're sitting. To make a long story short, if your back is not in contact with the chair when your working, you're missing out on the support your chair is ready, willing, and able to provide. The back of your chair needs to be as close to a 90 degree angle with the seat as possible to ensure proper spinal alignment. Too far back and you'll be over reach to type. To far forward and you'll be hunching and straining over the keyboard tray when working. As you move, make it a habit to reach for the tilt angle lever located underneath your office chair seat to adjust the chair back throughout the day.

Taking a set it and forget it approach to office posture just won't cut it. You have to be ready to adapt at a moments notice. Your chair adjusts for a reason and the adjustment features themselves are meant to be used regularly. Take your chair arms for example. They likely raise, lower, slide, and swivel. This is to help you compute healthy while tasking at your workstation.

Many of your posture problems can be solved effectively with proper chair and workstation synchronization. While it sounds complicated, it's actually quite simple. First and foremost, you need to raise your computer screens up to eye level. A stack of books, a cardboard box, or an attachable ergonomic computer screen mount will do the trick. When your screens are too low, you're looking down at them when working naturally at your desk. Over the long haul, this causes significant strain on the neck and back.

How To Sit Correctly In Your Office ChairWhen you sit for extended periods of time, even good posture habits start to slip. That's why, taking short breaks is a must. Even a top of the line ergonomic chair with good back support should not be used for more than 1 hour at a time without standing up to stretch out those stiffening muscles. Make it a point to walk around the office to get the blood flowing. Grab a drink of water to stay hydrated, and if possible, step outside to get some fresh air. You'll return to your workstation ready to continue working ergonomically correct.

Posture tips can be tough to remember, especially during busy work days. That's why tips charts and diagrams come highly recommended from physicians and ergo enthusiasts. With a proper posture diagram posted within eye sight of your computer screen, you'll be keeping good habits fresh in your mind. Before you know it, you'll have exchanged your bad habits for good ones. Remember, even the best office chair is only as good as it's owner. You have to take the time to master it's features, strive for good posture, and take short breaks to stay refreshed.

Are you ready to take your business to the next level? New office furniture will help you do it! By investing in smart, efficient, and versatile products you'll be able to take performance to the next level. Today on the Office Furniture Deals Blog we'll highlight 6 ways that new office furniture will do just that and more. Enjoy!

1.) Boost Corporate Appeal

The first one is a bit obvious, but it's still important. When guests visit your business, you want to wow them. You certainly don't want them forming impressions about your level of service and commitment to excellence based on dated interiors. With new open concept office furniture you'll be able to promote a cutting edge vibe that knocks the socks of even the harshest critics. In 2017, full service modern furniture lines that are up to date with today's hottest trends are widely available from industry leading brands like Mayline, Global, and Cherryman. Here's a few collections we recommend...

Open Concept Office Furniture
  • Medina by Mayline
  • Zira by Global
  • Verde by Cherryman Industries
  • Superior Laminate by Offices To Go
  • Mesa by OFM

2.) Maximize Square Footage

Square footage is always at a premium. If your interiors are feeling confined and cramped, it's time for an upgrade. Inefficient furniture layouts restrict productivity, organizational potential, and much more. When selecting new furniture for your business interiors, place your focus on modular versatility and functionality. With today's popular furnishings you'll be able to get the most out of every inch of space.

Modular Training Room Furniture3.) Collaboration

It's all about collaboration in 2017. The days of using traditional cubicle systems are rapidly coming to an end. This year businesses are turning to group benching and open concept office desk layouts that encourage team interaction. Do you remember those days in grade school when you got to work in groups? It was fun, right? You were more excited to tackle daily tasks because you got to collaborate with your fellow students. The same strategies are now being applied to professional interiors to kick productivity levels into overdrive.

Ergonomic Monitor Arm4.) Promote Healthy Operating

Investing in new office furniture will help you emphasize the importance of modern ergonomics and healthy operating. Today's furniture is designed with user comfort in mind. If your employees are complaining about physical strain and pain, you likely need to revamp your interiors. This year, new smart chairs are available from brands like Eurotech Seating and RFM Preferred Seating that minimize the ergonomic learning curve by automatically responding to user movements. In addition, essential ergonomic accessories like dual monitor arms, articulating keyboard trays, and sit to stand desktop risers will all give your employees the edge in terms of productivity and healthy operating.

5.) Streamline Daily Activities

Powered Up Boardroom TableFrom the reception area to the boardroom, new office furniture will help you streamline daily activities. In 2017, it's all about power ready products. With powered lounge furniture you'll quickly improve the guest waiting experience. With a powered up boardroom table you'll be able to effectively host multi media presentations and teleconferences. Old school furniture without power is becoming extinct. Don't let your business fall behind!

Well Organized Office Interior6.) Organization

If your file drawers are bursting at the seams, it's a problem. Without the room to effectively grow, you'll be incredibly limited in terms of operational functionality. Sure a few old school metal file cabinets will do the trick. That being said, advanced storage modules with modular stacking capacities are now the industry standard. From wardrobe cabinets to mobile desk pedestals with cushioned tops that double as guest stools, innovative new storage products are changing the way we work.

Office Chair Review: Joplin by Woodstock Marketing

Woodstock Marketing Joplin Chair Review
Woodstock Marketing has made it their mission to enhance professional executive interiors and meeting areas with trend setting seating that doesn't cost a fortune or lack in terms of quality. Today on the blog we'll be reviewing their popular Joplin chair. This designer seating solution offers the characteristics needed to wow your valued office guests while promoting top notch comfort and luxurious support.

Gray Leather Ribbed Back Conference ChairIn terms of style, the Joplin offers a blend of contemporary and mid century characteristics that have made it a favorite of interior design teams and shoppers alike. In both the mid and high back variations, Joplin chairs promote an upscale vibe in professional interiors.

Woodstock Joplin Chair In Black LeatherThe Joplin's sleek seat and back work together to form a fluid structure with ultra clean lines. The genuine leather seating surfaces are backed with high end vinyl for long term durability. Upon closer inspection you'll notice the attractive polished frame and base that add to the overall appeal of the chair.

Joplin chairs are very versatile. While not intended for intensive tasking applications, they really excel in the executive office and conference room. Specifically in meeting ares, the Joplin chair can be used to maximize the number of guests that can be comfortably accommodated around your table. As old school, overstuffed executive style conference chairs are being kicked to the curb. Sleek European influenced chairs like the Joplin have really found their niche.

White Leather Conference Chair with Ribbed BackThe Joplin isn't the only ribbed back office chair on the market. Nearly every reputable manufacturer offers at least one chair that mimics the Joplin's design. That being said, not all ribbed back conference room chairs are created equal. The Joplin offers the perfect combination of quality and value. At $269.00, the mid back Joplin chair is the most affordable. The high back variation is only slightly more expensive at $299.00, and we definitely recommend spending the extra thirty bucks to get it.

Red Leather Office ChairJoplin office chairs from Woodstock Marketing are available in 5 quick shipping color options. While traditionally tones like black and brown are offered, we particularly love the trend setting gray and red leather variations. They really pop! When paired with a multi functional mechanism, wide 5 star base, and heavy duty cylinder capable of supporting users up to 250 pounds, the Joplin is really the total package.

Woodstock Marketing Joplin Chair RatingWe give the Joplin chair 4.5 out of 5 stars. Our only deductions came due to a lack of adjustable arms and arm pads. The polished arms can be a bit cold to the touch when you first sit down. Other than these minor critiques, the Joplin is an absolutely awesome chair. Even with an influx of ribbed back models on the market, we find Joplin to be a superior option for just about any application imaginable. You really can't go wrong with one of these awesome chairs from Woodstock.
