How to: Furnish an Office
In the office you should feel focused and inspired at the same time, and to find the balance between these two, it's of relevance how you choose to decorate. Let the furnishing speak for itself, and the employees and external guests for what the brand is and represents.
OFFICE: DRAPING AND SOUND PROOFING
An office often means spaceaous rooms with many people, which is why textiles are key in more places than just around windows. Drape, sound proof and create a warm feeling by hanging custom made curtains along a whole wall - beautiful and effecient!
OFFICE: COLOR FOR THE MOOD
Don't forget to add color to the furnishing of your office. Color has a considerable effect on energy levels, and can hence increase positivity and commitment. Red is the color of energy that activates and enlivens, while yellow is more known for enhancing optimism and joy.
OFFICE: A FLEXIBLE ENVIRONMENT
By creating different seating areas with "islands", office furniture, sofa groups or a standing bar, you will be encouraged to change position and working station throughout the day. Inreased movement leads to increased productivity - so hop to it!
CONFERENCE ROOM: SCREENED OFF WITH LIGHT ADMISSION
It's common that conference rooms are completely surrounded by glass, or with generous glass sections. Keep in mind to choose a more sheer curtain, for example a Voile Hotel Curtain or Thin Linen Curtain, to screen off without loosing touch with the business going on outside the room.
CONFERENCE ROOM: A COMMON GOAL
It's important that the whole team has a common feeling and understanding of the company projects and goals, and a bulletin board to gather inspiration and plans is a good and visual way to achieve this.
CONFERENCE ROOM: NEUTRAL TONES FOR CALM
Unlike in an office environment, neutral tones are preferrable in a conference room. Here you want to create an inviting space where the dialogue, conversations and analysis get to be in focus, and not to be distracted by color. Another reason for choosing a neutral palette in a conference room is for the plain and simple reason that the people sitting in the room also add plenty of color, which can end up feeling a bit messy.
