Whilst some of us are returning to the workplace, many of us have decided to continue working from home or are adapting to hybrid working – we’re here to give you some suggestions to ensure your workspace is perfect for you, whether you’re back in the office or at home.
When working at home, it may seem easy and incredibly tempting to work from your sofa or even from the comfort of your bed, but during these times looking after our bodies should be at the forefront of our minds regardless of where we are working.
Height adjustable desks come with a variety of health benefits, whilst standing up at work may not sound particularly comfortable, taking standing breaks can help to improve posture, mood and energy levels, it’s good for your blood pressure and may even boost productivity.
Sit to stand desks are available in any size for any budget, we love the Herman Miller Ratio Sit Stand Desk (from £926.16) which is available in a huge variety of finishes to suit any space.
If a height adjustable desk isn’t for you, or you simply do not have the space, we love the Frovi Box desk. Its genius, fold-away design makes it perfect for anyone who may have more limited space and allows you to simply fold up your workspace at the end of the day – out of sight, out of mind!
A good office chair is also vital for your work and wellbeing. We are a huge fan of Herman Miller’s selection of ergonomic office chairs, especially the Herman Miller Embody Chair (from £965) and of course the infamous Herman Miller Aeron Chair (from £962.02) voted the best office chairs of all time by Forbes Magazine, closely followed by the Herman Miller Sayl Ergonomic Office Chair (From £362.30)
However, if the traditional style of office chair doesn’t work for you, or you’re looking for something a bit different, the HÅG Capisco (from £385) is a great alternative. Available in many different styles and finish, this chairs saddle style seat allows for a variety of different sitting positions.
Spring could be the perfect time to refresh your office, whilst your team is away our amazing designers can redesign your space without disturbing anyone, meaning when your staff finally return they will be welcomed by a brand new, engaging and inspiring office. This month, we’re loving all different styles of booths and pods, here are some to inspire you.
Our favourite this month is the ‘On the QT’ phone booths from Orangebox; these pods allow you or your team a space to go when they need to make a private phone call or just need a quiet workspace. Follow this link to find out more about these products
We also love the Frovi Jig Sheds. Available in a wide variety of colours and finishes, these fun booths allow for a private meeting space or a quiet, cosy workspace. The option to install a screen means these could be the perfect feature to allow for intimate meetings and presentations.
If you’ve been keeping up with our social media pages, you’ll already know we love the Play Collection from The Senator group – a series of fun and colourful pieces created with flexibility in mind that work just as well on their own as they do together. This range is suitable for collaborative or independent workers alike.
