If you knew that investing in quality furniture would in turn bring you a multitude of valued benefits, would you invest?

MADE TO WITHSTAND TIME AND TRENDS
Longevity is intimately interconnected with quality. High quality furniture will prove to be superior in years to come. A poor man pays twice rings true when in comes to furniture, lower cost products prove to be a false economy, requiring replacement in time.
Charles and Ray Eames lounge chair, Eero Saarinen’s Tulip Chair, the butterfly chair; These are just some of the many iconic furniture designs that have had incredible power to withstand time and design trends. The value of investing in furniture that is versatile has been presented time and time again, a designer’s role in creating a versatile space that will last is key to a successful workplace design.
MADE WITH YOU IN MIND
On average employees spend 1811.16 hours per year at work, meaning the furniture they use at work can have a huge long-term impact on their well-being and health. Fatigue, muscle strain and back issues are the most common health problems in the workplace that are linked with poorly designed furniture. This can strongly impact an employee’s health and productivity. To maximise motivation in employees, an investment in furniture that is ergonomically designed will allow your employees to stay focused. Furniture can be tested by ergonomic companies, producing a report for a business’s health and safety records, allowing peace of mind for both business owners and employees alike.
When your people are happy and healthy at work, they will drive your success. A focus on wellbeing is just one area that will help your team feel more connected – and they will actually want to do more for you. You will see a lower staff turnover too.
