Edwards & Hill Awarded Maryland Live! Casino Contract

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Here at Edwards & Hill Office Furniture we have exciting news to share! We have been awarded the contract to supply and install all of the back of house furniture in the new Maryland Live! Casino located at Arundel Mills Mall.

The Maryland Live! Casino is a 330,000 square foot casino valued at $500 million dollars and sits on 12 acres of land. It has 4,750 slot machines and electronic table games as well as live entertainment venues. Some acclaimed restaurants that will be within the casino are Bobby Flay’s Burger Palace, The Cheesecake Factory and Phillips Seafood.

Maryland Live! Casino is scheduled to open June 6th 2012! See the Maryland Live! Casino website for more details at www.marylandlivecasino.com.

Whether you need to furnish a multi-million dollar casino or a small office, you need to follow the right trends. When you keep up with modern designs in your casino, you encourage repeat customers and make it likely that your customers will stay and play a while.  Though the furniture needs to be trendy, it is equally important that the furniture be comfortable.

Focus your furniture design choices more on your target market/visitors preferences than solely your personal decorative desires to make sure you’re your Casino appeals to your guests.

Here are just a few furnishing suggestions to help you make your casino the talk of the town:

When decorating a casino, it is far different than decorating your home or office. In your home living space you can place chairs where you want, paint your walls your favorite color, and furnish it with any style of chairs and tables. When decorating a commercial casino, you need to concentrate on what your target market wants and how that fits into your business model.

Commercial casinos call for a comfortable setting. You want your customers to be excited and have fun, but you also want to make sure that they are comfortable.  Make sure that the interior exudes excitement with a fashion forward feeling.  You don’t want your customers going someplace else because your Casino is outdated and drab.

While there will undoubtedly be different areas of your Casino, you should be sure to tie the entire space together with a common theme, carpet, lights, etc.  When people walk in the door they should say, “WOW!”

No matter what you envision, Edwards & Hill is here to provide you quality furniture and exceptional customer services. We can assemble your furniture. We can assist you with furniture project management and coordination services. We can help you with your interior design, space planning and more!

What You Need To Know Before Shopping For File Cabinets

Friday, May 18th, 2012

We can all agree that redesigning an office space is definitely a challenge. You need to think twice about what you spend money on, for your future office. Read for tips on how to shop for what you need when shopping for file cabinets.

When shopping for office furniture, what you buy depends all on your office structure, line of work, number of employees and the frequency your furniture is used.

The most sought out office furniture items are cabinets, tables, and chairs. Below are a list of file cabinets you may need in the office and the benefits they offer:

About Storage Cabinets

A file storage cabinet will always be an office necessity because not only will it make your life easier but organization is key to a successful business or lifestyle. A file cabinet is also able to provide you with extra space to store any other articles.

A quality cabinet will keep all your necessary files in a systematic order so they will be available in a faster and non time consuming way. These three types of file cabinets are all accessible; lateral, vertical and rolled.

The lateral file cabinet arranges files in a front-to-back or side-by-side fashion. Lateral files are much wider than normal files, holding 30% more than standard cabinets. If you expect to store bulk documents in your files, this is the cabinet for you.

The vertical file cabinet, this file cabinet is perfect if you are dealing with a compact office. This cabinet takes up very little space and can hold five to six drawers. It will arrange your files in a front-to-back manner.

The side-facing design, this cabinet arranges files in a side basis so that you can quickly retrieve your important files when you need them available. This is a perfect option for an office that needs to review files and other documents on a daily basis.

If the above cabinet options still do not meet your needs, you can always purchase rolled file cabinets. This is the perfect cabinet when your office needs to roll up scroll files and store them in containers. This type of cabinet is mostly used in educational sectors.

Remember, to make the right furniture choices for your office, always purchase supplies from a trusted and branded furniture manufacturer. Edwards & Hill Office furniture is here to help you make the right choices for your office designs by providing highly functional, stylish cabinets.

Why Is It Important To Choose The Right Furniture For Your Office Interior Design?

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

It is no secret that the choice of office furniture is an important aspect of office interior design planning. No matter what your design plan may be, office furniture should be highly functional and stylish – from classic office furniture to contemporary furniture.

When choosing office furniture, you want to create a workspace that provides you, your employees and clients more than just a place to sit, work and converse about business.

For many innovative companies, it is important to invest in office furniture that enhances productivity and inspires staff to put forth their best efforts and ideas at work. Your furniture should promote clients to do business with you and refer your business to potential clients.

To choose high quality office furniture, you should take a serious look at your furniture options to bring to life your desired workplace environment. You will also want to take in consideration what you want your company to stand for when employees and visitors alike interact in your office space.

The right furniture choice can influence employees to work better in your environment as well as market your business more effectively to the business world and consumers alike.

Here are ways the right office furniture can make a major and positive impact on your office interior design:

Comfortable Furniture Improves Posture And Health. There is nothing quite like the combination of comfortable chairs and desks at a workplace. Comfort goes beyond cushions and fabrics. Well-designed furniture with comfort in mind will give employees enough space for working, prevent physical injury and keep them organized.

For example, Ergonomic chairs offer great comfort to employees with its contoured   backs made specifically to be adjustable for full back support. These chairs even have comfortable arm-rests with height adjustments to help your employees keep a healthy posture. You also want to make sure all chairs fit into the desks they occupy to ensure users can comfortably perform tasks at their work desks.

As for the desks themselves, you should look for desk functions that increase comfort and productivity at the same time.

When it comes to choosing the right types of desks for your office, one of your top priorities should be purchasing spacious desks. Spacious desks provide sufficient work areas and also enhance the attractiveness of your desks furniture because they are capable of hiding PC wiring that can make workspaces look sloppy.  There are options for those who lack the space for a larger desk.

If managing comfortable space is difficult in your office, go for a minimalist style office plan to give your office space an airy, fresh feel. This will help the furniture to not impose on the nature of the office. Instead, the furniture design will give the office a slim, delicate look.

Some furniture items you can use to pull off the minimalist style are cabinets that sit low like dressers and blend smoothly with office walls. Desk dividing walls can also be installed to give your furniture layout a low, transparent and open look.

You can also add quirky furniture designs to the office to tantalize the creativity of your employees.

Some quirky furniture designs can be in the form of chairs, desks, or book cabinets. For example, you can install a bookcase that swerves like a snake upwards to branch away from conventional straight side furniture.

You can add contrasts to your office interior design with wood and chrome or brushed steel. Or try using orange stacking chairs with white plastic topped desks for a modern and trendy office design.

If you want to get really adventurous with your interior design, mix match furniture to keep the creative juices flowing in your office. Designate luxury areas to promote office harmony and minimize the stress that typically is generated in the workplace. One great room you can transform to a luxurious area is the office kitchen.

You can furnish the kitchen area to look more like a lounge, with small couches and coffee tables rather than the regular canteen table and chair combination. Or transform a typical break area to a fun, recreational room by furnishing it with large, colorful couches or beanbags. This will provide your staff an area to relax and escape work duties for 10 minutes so they may be refreshed before continuing their work.

No matter your office interior design preference, Edwards & Hill is here to help you choose the right office furniture for your company’s image and your staff’s comfort.

Let Your Office Do The Talking For Your Business Brand

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

As a business owner, it is important that your products, services and office design do the talking for your business just as much as you do. No one wants to do business with a company that can’t keep up with its own business operations, including maintaining a flattering office décor. Every area of your office space should ooze of comfort, creativity and professionalism at all times. Edwards & Hill is here to help you let your office space do the talking for your business brand. Read now to learn what you need to do to get the office design and layout results you desire.

You want your business to appear as highly professional and innovative.  The last thing you want to show your potential clients is an office space that is disorganized in layout and fully furnished with outdated, uncomfortable office furniture.

New trends in the furniture industry now give you the option to transform a boring office with unflattering décor to a sophisticated, stylish and welcoming one. Good office design plays a crucial role in retaining employees, increasing your business’ brand value and expanding your business through new customer leads.

To uphold a professional and comfortable atmosphere in your office, you need to avoid buying office furniture that mismatches with itself and your office atmosphere. For example if your business is a law firm, you may not want an office decorated in bright colors of yellow, red, blue and pink. Consider purchasing office furniture with more natural tones of brown, beige, black, and gray.

To avoid interior design disasters when remodeling your office, create an office space that is welcoming, productive and sticks to a professional appearance for your business. To accomplish this, sketch out your office layout. Estimate the space available to comfortably furnish your office without slowing down the flow of high traffic. Set aside time to buy office furniture that is made for comfort and stylish for employees and clients.

Also, when starting the office planning process take into account the size of your company, your available budget, the type of office design you desire, and the message you want your office design to present to visitors and employees.

Ask yourself how important are skyline views, natural light and airflow for your office? Ask for feedback from your employees on what types of chairs and desks would be most comfortable for them to use. Happy employees are more willing to represent your brand well. You need to answer these questions prior to remodeling your office space.

Here are just a few office designs you can choose to improve your office atmosphere:

- Try creating an open office layout with cubicles that promote environmentally friendly initiatives by utilizing maximum space while reducing business costs. Eco-friendly furniture such as chairs and desks that utilize recycled materials go great with this type of design and could reduce business costs all at once.

- Add social areas to your office to demonstrate to your staff you care for their health and well-being. Let Employees get a break from their workstations with social areas such as game rooms, common rooms or meditation rooms.

Your office is no longer just a space to conduct business operations; it’s a branding tool. It is time to look inwards for your cost savings while presenting your brand well.
