How to decorate an Office Lounge

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Are you redesigning an office? A room you should definitely consider remodeling is the office lounge.

The office lounge is the perfect place for employees and clients to conjugate for casual conversation, informal meetings and even to grab a cup of coffee.

It is important that this area of the office is highly functional and stimulating to workers and clients. The atmosphere needs to be very comfortable as well. This can be accomplished with ergonomic furniture that features refreshing, stimulating colors and patterns.

What are the most popular office lounge furniture items?

  • Neutral color side tables and lunch tables. Always purchase sturdy, uniformed tables for the lounge to provide multi-functional furniture items to employees and clients.
  • Designate a side of the room solely for food and beverage preparation. Some appliances you will need for the food and beverage preparation areas are: a microwave, mini fridge, and counter-topwith a small sink, tea/coffee machine and drink/snack vending machines.
  • Ergonomic seating that include side tables. The best seating for lounge areas are chairs that come in solid colored fabric because they can match with just about any other interior design accessories, such as draperies. Make sure there are ergonomic tables for employees to comfortably work with laptops and writing materials to truly create a relaxing yet comfortable lounge for workers.
  • Modular benches to serve as a designated wait area.

Modern office lounges are the perfect place for employees to complete collaborative work without feeling constrained to a super formal work atmosphere.

Conference Room Design Projects: What do you need?

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Is your conference room in need of an extreme makeover?

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture is here to style up your conference room from ceiling to floor.

Conference room designs: What do you need to pay attention to?

Setting up a comfortable and highly functional conference room may sound easy, but it can be a challenging interior design project if you have no idea where to start.

The key to completing a great conference room design project is to pay attention to detail.

The most commonly used furniture pieces for conference rooms are:

  • Conference tables

  • Ergonomic Chairs

  • But don’t forget the Audio Visual components

  • Wire Management

For the conference room table, you need to pay attention to the height of the table compared to the height of chairs placed around the table. Clients and employees should never feel like they are squeezing their legs underneath the table. They should have plenty of room to move their legs up and down, as well as extend their legs forward or to the side without bumping into the legs of others.

Next, it is important for the conference room to be painted a neutral color to create a fresh and welcoming atmosphere. This is especially important for videoconference rooms because dark or bright walls force those trying to view presentations to strain their eyes.

Nonetheless, you should utilize the space and furniture of your conference room to make a positive statement about your company’s business practices and operations. For the best decorative results, your conference room interior design should give off a unified look.

You can pull this off with the following interior design tactics:

  • Furnish the conference room with leather ergonomic chairs. Leather furniture can let clients know that your company is serious about business when it comes to communicating sophistication and quality products/ services.

  • Purchase modern furniture. This will let your business partners and clients know that you’re a highly innovative company that’s up on the latest in your industry while still maintaining an upbeat, energetic work atmosphere.

  • Add in your company’s personality. It is a great idea to have your company photos and awards on display for business partners and clients to give off good vibes about your company and its positive impact on the community.

  • Plan the conference room design/ theme around your selected conference room table. This is a great design strategy because the conference table is always the centerpiece and all other furniture items can be compared to how well they flow naturally with the table.

Conference room tables commonly come in the form of a rectangular shape or a similar shape like boat shaped. The conference table you select for your business will all depend on how intimate you want the space to be for business partners and clients.

If you have a large room, we recommend purchasing a rectangular conference table rather than a round table because small conference tables look awkward in large conference rooms. Edwards & Hill Office Furniture can assist you in selecting a conference table that’s proportionate to your conference room design.

Consider a round conference table when you have a small to regular sized conference room. The round tables are perfect for businesses that prefer collaborative work because the shape of the table promotes closeness.

We have an excellent selection of modular conference tables and other essential conference room accessories – white boards, projection screens, and serving credenzas.

Bed And Breakfast Inns: What are the Best Hospitality Furniture Items?

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

Starting a prosperous Bed & Breakfast business is never easy but with the right interior design and amenities, you can offer guests everything they want and more.

Most guests decide to stay and return to bed & breakfast inns based on appearance and the “at home” feeling.

It is crucial to your business success to give guests a good first impression so that they will make reservations time and time again.

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture is here to design a warm and inviting bed & breakfast for you.

The walls and hospitality furniture should be warm colors.

Open space layouts should be avoided to give guests a reason to explore your bed & breakfast in and out. You can accomplish this feel of exploration with captivating wall paintings, luxurious lounging areas and vibrant drapes/curtains.

These elements will give the bed & breakfast a soft feel that helps guests feel right at home. More importantly choosing a theme for your bed & breakfast will help you to create a better flow with the design and hospitality furniture pieces.

Ideally, guests want bed & breakfast inns to feel like home. The bed & breakfast inn should be known as a quiet retreat for guests.

Here are great hospitality furniture items you can purchase for your bed & breakfast inn:

-Victorian Style Furniture

-Cottage Style Furniture

-Wicker Chairs/ Seating for porches and bedroom balconies

-Victorian Style Dining Chairs

-Four Poster Beds

-Bedside lamps

What should be inside the guest rooms?

The guest rooms should be furnished with antique or classic furniture – beds, dressers, desks and chairs should have a timeless feel rather than a trendy feel.

Remember, bed & breakfast designs are all about maintaining visual balance that never goes out of style.

For the bedding, place accent pillows on top of crisp, clean linens. The better sleep your guests enjoy at your bed & breakfast, the more memorable and reputable your inn will become.

There should be absolutely no clutter in the guest rooms. Bedside tables are a must for de-cluttering and give guests the impression of having a spacious guest room. Ergonomic seating is also a must for guests to lounge in the comfort of their private rooms.

Warm. Inviting. Thoughtful.
