How to choose office furniture
At the very center of modern office design is the office desk. The desk is the workhorse, holding a computer, writing materials, lamps, and phones in neat and organized ways to allow for maximum productivity. At DWR, desks come in sizes to fit any space from small office desk to large office desk. They can be as simple as an office table in various sizes or come with built-in desk storage, like a drawer or slide-out tray. Office chairs are next in line when considering modern office design – and of equal importance. Comfortable office chairs are an indispensable part of productivity and well-being, the alignment of your spine, legs, and arms contributing to alertness and a pain-free workday. DWR has a large selection of performance seating to fit a wide range of needs, preferences, and body sizes. Office furniture sets can be handy in the home office, providing not only an office desk but a file cabinet or printer stand as well, offering a way to stay organized and productive. The ultimate determiner of furniture in your home office will be a balance of room size, work and storage needs, lighting needs, and your needs as a productive worker.
How to organize office furniture
Many people ask how to arrange furniture in a small office. The first step is to select furniture that fits the room, recognizing that you will need a chair and desk at a minimum. In selecting office furniture sizes for small offices, begin with the desk, selecting the smallest size that is still big enough for the work you need to accomplish. As you organize office furniture, next select a task chair that will provide good support and enough options to be comfortable over a long day but has a modest footprint. DWR offers many performance seating options that fit in compact spaces. If you set up office furniture thoughtfully, you can assemble a productive ensemble in a small office.
