It’s Best If You Don’t Have a Furniture Problem
Office Furniture is essential for any business – it is used by your team every day. While that is stating the obvious – it needs to be considered as an investment.
It is well established that good furniture fosters productivity and health. So your furniture needs to be comfortable and make the work environment attractive at the same time.
The purchase of furniture can represent a significant investment so don’t forget the productivity and health of your P&L.

Things to know and look out when choosing furniture products
Length of warranty is usually proportionate to quality.
Consider the trade-off between price and the length of time the product will deliver service.
Fit for purpose products
A chair is a chair – right?
Not quite – it depends upon the type of use required of it. There are office chairs available on the market for less than $100.
Consider in the value equation type of use, desired length of service (associated warranty) and price.
While design and appearance may be key considerations make sure the function and comfort boxes are ticked first.
Where on-going supply is important take care in choosing furniture and fabrics that are timeless. It’s not a good look when you hire 20 new staff and you are unable to purchase matching items.
Confirm continuity of supply for when you need additions, repair or replacement.
Beware the latest fad
If fashion is a key consideration be conscious of the balance between price and length of service. If fashion changes in 2-3 years time it’s not wise to have furntiure which still has many years of service remaining.
