Shopping for office furniture and don’t know what to do?

confused about san diego office furniture  Well you’re not alone. In most smaller companies, when the CEO or someone at the top of ladder determines they need furniture, the task ends up in the hands of a person who has no idea how to shop for it or where to start.  If we had a dollar for every phone call we have received from a client looking for a desk or a workstation, who didn’t know the size or set up that they need, and their boss said it needs to be as inexpensive as possible, well… we wouldn’t have to work anymore! So what are the steps in purchasing office furniture? Here are the first two…

Step 1: Determine the need.  Do you need a desk? Or a Workstation? Or 30 workstations? If so, do you know what size? How about café furniture? Lounge furniture? A reception station? Collaboration? A training room? Ergonomic accessories? Oh , and don’t forget teleconference! And…. you get the point…  Determining exactly what it is your office may need isn’t always easy. But come up with a few key factors and then proceed to step two….

Step 2: Call a furniture consultant [Enter Crawford and Company]

It is our job as your furniture consultants to assist you with selecting products that fit your budget and vision and will be able to grow with you as your company grows.  We have 6 furniture consultants, all with several years experience in the industry, and an extremely talented team of professionals to assist our consultants. With our experience, we know the right questions to ask to determine the best solution for your company, which is rarely the most expensive option (regardless of what those other guys tell you! So if you’re stuck trying to determine how many people you can fit in your space, we will take your floor plan and then provide you with a block plan to determine how many stations you can fit at specific size stations. Then, once the quantity needed has been determined, we can then whittle down the exact workstation layout that works for your company and employees.

No? You don’t want a cube farm? Ok then how about this approach:

Furniture manufacturers have been studying how people behave physically when they work and collaborate. For example, Allsteel studied how people lean on pieces of furniture when they converse with others. From this study, they developed a line of furniture called Gather. In this line, there are many products that are designed to lean on, lean against, and even climb on. Here are some examples:

Teamwork Office Furniture : Allsteel Gather

Teamwork Office Furniture : Allsteel Gather.- By Meghan Young.

The Allsteel Gather office furniture collection focuses on the latest evolution of the workplace, which happens to involve teamwork and collaboration. Instead of encouraging distance, independence and an overall sterile environment, this collection embraces connectivity between coworkers that will breed casual, spontaneous exchanges and other such interactions.

Especially perfect for idea sharing, the Allsteel Gather office furniture collection will promote a more creative routine. In place of stifling cubicles and drab decor, the Allsteel Gather collection offers modern designs that are more open and airy.

The Allsteel Gather office furniture collection was commissioned by HOK and IDa Design. It won Silver at this year’s NeoCon, which shows just how much people want a more collaborative and interactive to space to work in. Allsteel specifically caters to this.
